take the cake
An impressive floral "cake" makes a great centerpiece for a bridal shower or luncheon.
In this delightful design, perfect for celebrations of all kinds, a profusion of roses, Godetias, China asters and statice, ranging from delicate rose to hot-pink hues, is accented with tufts of baby's breath. A collar of layered salal leaves—crafted by stapling clusters of the leaves together—forms a lush verdant base for the composition. The collar can be created ahead of time to save on labor the day of the event.
hybrid tea and spray roses, Godetias, China asters, statice, baby's breath (Gypsophila) and salal from favorite suppliers; cake stand from private collection.
