Silk Summer Flower Centerpiece
This arrangement is one of my favorite silk flower arrangements. I have used it in my living room for years on a small side table as summer accent. The soft range of colors, pleasing form, and simple design make it timeless and something that you will never grow tired of. It is quick and easy to put together, taking only about 10-15 minutes. It also only cost about $7.00 to put together!
Pale green 7 inch lotus bowl
5 inch round piece of floral foam
4 coral silk lilies
4 cream silk lilies
8 peach silk gerbera daisies
8 peach and cream silk gerbera daisies
Place the floral foam snugly into the lotus bowl. Arrange the flowers on your work surface. Cut two of the coral lilies and 2 of the cream lilies 6 inches long. Cut the remaining four lilies 3 inches long. Cut 4 peach gerbera daisies, 4 peach and cream gerbera daisies, and 4 cream gerbera daisies 4 1/2 inches long. Cut the remaining daisies 3 inches long. Using with the 4 6 inch long lilies, place two of the coral lilies in the very center of the floral foam across from each other. Arrange the two cream lilies on each side of the coral lilies to form a square. Add the very bottom edge of the floral foam add an 3 inch lily beneath each top lily, alternating colors so that there is a peach lily beneath every cream lily and a cream lily beneath every peach lily as shown in the photos. Add the gerbera daisies, using the 4 1/2 inch long daisies in the center of the arrangement and the 3 inch long daisies on the edges.
