How to Make the Most out of Your Event Budget: Underwater Centerpieces

Let's talk centerpieces!

Okay so first step - Get all of your supplies together.



Glass Lantern ( I scored this one at Walmart for $4!!)

Flowers - I picked a spring inspired mix of magentas & coral

Decor- I picked some votives & candles


Fishing Wire

Fish Weights (TIP: the heavier flower you pick, the heavier weight you need)


Rocks or Sand for base of lantern

- Cut different sizes of fishing line

- Tie one end to the flower ( TIP: try to secure the line into the folds of the floral stem to assure it is on there to stay)

- Tie the other end to the weight

-Repeat until all of your flowers are secure to the weights

-Add water to your vase/glass lantern halfway

- Start dropping the flowers in & when you place them under the water, shake them slightly to remove air bubbles from the flower to assure it sinks.

- Move the flowers around in the arrangement to a location you like.

- Add your rocks to cover the weights at the bottom.

-Decorate your centerpiece however your heart desires! I chose different types of votives, candles, and candle sticks.
