Hi everyone. My mom is throwing FI and I an engagement party. It''s going to be a fairly formal event in a banquet facility. I''d like to cut some costs though and have more money go towards the weddingWith that said, I''m thinking that rather than have a florist make arrangements, we should make the centerpieces ourselves. I generally enjoy simple decor with clean lines, so I was thinking it would be nice to have some sturdier flowers (i.e. calla lillies, tulips, etc) which I imagine would be easier to arrange (for the actual wedding, I''d like more elaborate centerpieces with lots of orchids!!). As a novice, do you think this can be done? What kinds of flowers would you recommend? Any tips on materials I may need and on technique? Thank you so much for your help ladies!
