Centerpiece for Dummies

So while I made this arrangement for office holiday decor, you could easily recreate this for your home or for a holiday party centerpiece. It wouldn't work well for a sit-down dinner centerpiece unless you are trying to avoid the people on the other side of the table, but it would work great for a buffet table!

All you need is some type of urn or base vessel, a block of Oasis floral foam in an inexpensive globe vase placed inside that, some greenery, a few hypericum berries, a few poms and some ornaments and you're ready to go. I realize now when you type that out it doesn't sound like a short list, but really, this could not be easier. Honest. I only lie about my weight.

Insert the foam block vertically into your globe vase and start cutting and placing your greenery into it. Fill in with the berries next. Attach the ornaments to some floral picks with wire and fill those in next. Lastly add in the poms or other flowers of your choice and you're done. I added the poms to pull out some of the green used in the wrapped faux presents and other furnishings in the office. What you use is completely up to your imagination!
