Valentine Table Centerpiece ~ This valentine table centerpiece looks so pretty on a valentine tablescape created for a special Valentine’s Day dinner.
The great thing about this project is that it’s super easy to make and it creates quite a stunning arrangement. The other great thing is I just used items from Wal-Mart and the dollar store so it wasn’t that expensive to make.
I previously wrote a post about How To Care For Fresh Cut Roses. I shared you don’t necessarily have to keep an arrangement together. Sometimes I like to split up a bouquet and make up two or three different ones that I can place around the house in different locations. This little project is one of those examples.
As a treat to myself I bought a bouquet of twenty-four red and white roses at Costco. I took out six of the red roses to make this smaller table centerpiece for the kitchen table. The rest of the roses I put in a pretty tall crystal vase for the sofa table in the living room.
This smaller and lower valentine table centerpiece fits a lot better on a table where we eat at and can nicely be used as the focal point for a Valentine tablescape. The taller rose bouquet works much better as a decorative item for an entire room.
Materials For How To Make A Valentine Table Centerpiece:
- One shallow style clear glass dish or bowl
- One smaller square or circular clear glass vase
- Sharp knife or pruners
- Floral foam
- Chopstick or long skewer
- Floral beads
- Various types of heart embellishments
Instructions For How To Make A Valentine Table Centerpiece
Keep the stems of the roses that you are going to use in water the entire time while making this project.
Cut a piece of the floral foam about 1-1/2 inches think and trim it so it fits in the smaller vase.
Use the chopstick or long skewer to poke holes evenly spaced through the floral foam. My arrangement ended up using six roses so I made six holes.
Fill the smaller vase about three quarters full with water and place the floral foam inside. The floral foam will end up floating but that is OK. This is a good time to add some of the powdered floral food that came with the flowers.
Trim the number of roses you are going to use to slightly higher the height of the smaller vase. Use a sharp straight edge knife or pruners for this task.
Carefully poke a rose through each pre-made hole so the stem pokes through to the bottom. Again, the floral foam will end up floating.
Now place the smaller vase in the center of the larger one.
Fill the larger vase with the floral beading. I used three packages.
On top of the floral beading arrange the heart embellishments. I even rested some of them along the smaller vase to help hide the floral foam.
Here are some more beauty shots of this valentine table centerpiece. I have to admit I love the red and white combination but any colour of rose will look fabulous.
I bought the larger glass dish a couple of years ago at Wal-Mart for about $10.00 for another project and have used it several times since.
I bought the smaller square vase, floral foam, floral beads and heart embellishments at the dollar store.
All of the other materials I had in the house.
The floral design experts say to use an uneven number of flowers but the size of the vase fit six roses perfectly so that is how many I used. The vase you choose may hold a different number of flowers.
For follow-up care I just made sure the floral foam was kept moist. This bouquet will last for quite awhile.
If you allow the water and floral foam to dry up you will end up with an equally lovely dried rose arrangement that can last the whole month of February or even longer if you want!
Since the floral beads and heart embellishments didn’t get wet or soiled, they can be stored for next year or used in another project!
I made this Valentine Table Centerpiece especially for my Valentine Tablescape that I share in How To Create A Valentine Tablescape. It fits perfectly in the middle of the table.
I made a similar Shamrock Table Centerpiece that you might want to check out too.
That’s it! That is how to make a very simple but very pretty Valentine table centerpiece.
