Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where we must commemorate our mothers for all their hard work. There are many things that you can do for your mother in order for her to feel special. You can cook a special meal for her and do all the preparations and cooking. Once you have all the dishes, the only thing left for you to do is prepare a centerpiece to complete the presentation. Making a mother’s day centerpiece is really easy. Find out how you can do this by reading the steps below.
Follow these steps to make a mother’s day centerpiece:
- Materials that you need. The materials that you need for making the centerpiece are fresh flowers, a nice vase, ribbons, scissors, floral tape and other items that you might want to add to the centerpiece. Choose your mother’s favorite flowers and use vibrant colors to draw attention to the centerpiece.
- Do the flower arrangement. Prepare the flower arrangement. Get the big flowers and put them at the center of the flower vase. Use the other flowers and arrange them around the central flower. Cut the stems of the outer flowers so that the central flower is taller. After placing all the flowers, add fillers to the sides to make the arrangement fuller. If the mouth of the vase is wide, you may want to add more flowers to the arrangement. Use the floral tape to gather the stems together. Place the arrangement at the middle of the table and see whether the height is just right. You don’t want to block the view of the people eating by having a high centerpiece. Adjust the height of the flowers if they are too tall.
- Tie the ribbon. Tie the ribbon around the stem of the flowers to finish the arrangement. Now you are done with your mother’s day centerpiece. Set it at the middle of the table for everyone to view. You must have a large or long table to have this type of centerpiece. If you have a small table, you might want to lessen the flowers or just lay them down on the table instead of using a vase.
- Prepare the table. To improve the presentation of your mother’s day surprise, you can place a nice table cloth over the table. Choose a color that will go with the flowers that you have. You can also put chair covers or tie ribbons on the chairs. Set the table and serve the dishes that you prepared.
Now you have a nice centerpiece for your mother’s day surprise. This is
just one of the things that you can make as a centerpiece. You do not
have to be limited in doing flower arrangements. Other ideas are using a
small fishbowl, doing candle arrangements, preparing a fruit platter or
using a cupcake tower. Use the things that your mother loves as
inspiration. Your mother will surely be surprised and happy to see the
effort that you put in making the centerpiece.
