How To Make a Quick & Easy Orchid Wedding Centerpiece

Time

Depending on the number of centerpieces, it should take a mere 5-10 minutes to arrange each centerpiece. Perfect for busy bridal parties.

Step 1

Purchase and gather all the supplies you need above.

Blooming Orchid Plants - You can purchase orchid plants from our website or you can purchase them at a local florist. If you purchase from a local florist, read our How to Pick Orchids guide.

Planters/Pots/Containers - Planters, baskets, clay pots, and vases all look beautiful and depend on the type of event you're having. You can purchase planters and clay pots at a local gardening center, baskets at a local craft store.

A cheap alternative is to buy inexpensive clay pots and paint them with one of your theme colors.

Step 2

The orchids normally are sold in plastic grower's containers. If you choose a container/basket/pot that is just a little bigger in radius than this plastic container, you can simply drop the orchid plants into the purchased containers.

 

Step 3 (optional)

For an extra spring look, add green moss to cover the base of the plant. This will give the table a brighter, garden feel.

If you purchase the moss and do this yourself, you'll save $50+ compared to having the florist add this little detail for you.

Step 4

Tie a colorful bow to the stem of the orchid plant. Be very gentle as not to break the stem. Voila! You've got a beautiful orchid centerpiece!
