You could make kusudama balls and place them atop pedestals or cylinder vases.

or hang them like this

you can wire the flowers and add ribbon, greens etc and make an arrangement


or make just a few for each table and display them on a plate or tray

I would do a simpler pottery plate for a more zen-like centrepiece

I love them too – I’m just trying to figure out how to make them look good.  I’ve been fooling around with using them for a Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet.  I would love to use them as a centerpiece, but I guess I’m worried that they might get wet or lit on fire.  Probably overthinking things!

If you find any other ideas, post them – I’d love to see!

I made these for aisle decorations.  I made a half ball so 6 flowers glued together, and then added a backing to cover up the unfinished side and allow them to sit flat against the chairs. People took them home with them, and put them on their tables as centerpieces as home and they looked really nice that way. 

I also think if you made a ball and then balanced it on the right vase it could look really nice.
