Flowers have always accentuated the overall charm of any decor idea. As one of the attractive choices, apart from roses, lilies, daffodils, blossom crowns, and many more, Gerbera daisies come in various shapes, colors, and sizes. They are vastly available during spring and summer time, and can be used as tall or short centerpiece decoration.
Before You Begin
There's a small stop that should not be overlooked while making centerpieces yourself. The questions you need to have answers to are:
- Are the centerpieces being used in a wedding, at home, or a special occasion?
- Which color(s) are you planning to use for the centerpieces?
- Apart from Gerbera daisies, are you including any other flowers?
- Is there a theme you will follow?
- How many centerpieces are you going to make?
- How long do the centerpieces need to last for?
Centerpiece Ideas to Try
As Gerbera flowers come in vivid and magnificent colors like red, yellow, salmon, pink, orange, and white, the centerpieces can be altered as per availability and preferences. If you feel that Gerbera daisies by itself won't bring that charm you're looking for, you can definitely add other flowers to enhance the centerpieces.
Bowl, Cup, and Watering Can Centerpieces
Now I know that we've mentioned using a bowl for our next idea, but here, you can either use a fancy glass bowl or even a candle holder. Either way, the centerpiece is going to look fabulous. How? Let me explain. Add a few colored pebbles, marbles, jellybeans, or stones, grass, coffee beans, lemon and oranges slices, etc. The choice is yours; pick whatever you like.
This centerpiece works best when you have a handful of centerpieces to make. Why? Because it can be a bit expensive if used on a wide scale such as a wedding. You'll require tea cups and saucers of similar or varied colors and patterns to complete the centerpiece. Depending on the color of the Gerbera daisies, you can decorate the cups. Single cups, along with saucers will do just fine.
If you have seen any colorful watering cans at a craft store or you have some at your home, you can turn them into beautiful centerpieces. Paint them in bright colors, add a few designs and patterns on top, and just place Gerbera daisies in. Add a little water in to keep the flowers looking fresh for longer.
Glass Vase Centerpieces
For this idea, you can use fancy olive oil bottles or any other tall, glass bottles that can hold one or two flowers properly. Keep one of the stems shorter than the other and place them inside the bottle. Don't forget to fill the bottle with a bit of water. To give it a different look, you can even add a few drops of food coloring.
When you're searching for a lavish decor for the table, using a bigger, taller glass jar is ideal. This way, you can include at least a dozen Gerbera daisies of varied colors. Fill the bottom of the jar with water, add a few petals in, and then place the flowers in. Don't forget to keep the stems longer than the height of the jar or the flowers will submerge.
Long Table Centerpieces
For long tables that seats 6+ people, the other choices for centerpieces won't work as well as they did before. Which is why, we suggest using a separate idea altogether. For every table you wish to decorate, have a minimum of 5 similar-colored bottles; they need to be like size. Now place a different colored flower in each bottle and place the bottles in the middle of the table.
If you can find glass tubes, colored or transparent, using them as centerpiece is excellent. Here as well, you don't require to do a lot. You can either add water and one or two flowers in. To give it a richer look, add purple spray asters, craspedia, goldenrods (Solidago), green or red hypericum berries, sisal, larkspur, or baby's breath.
Gerbera daisies not only make elegant centerpieces, but are durable as they last for many hours. You can include your own creativity to any of these Gerbera daisy centerpieces and use them for various occasions.
