- Keep it simple
For a first timer who will be arranging flowers for so many centerpieces, you don’t want your experiment to blow up in your face. In lieu of going crazy with the flowers, just keep the centerpieces simple and elegant.
Plan ahead and label the jars with the number of flowers that should go in them along with their kinds. This will save your time and reduce chances of a disaster.
