grapes arrangement for centerpieces

This arrangement will show you how to make a flower centerpiece using grapes.   (I recently posted a similar flower arrangement for small tables, which can be used together) 

In this post, I used champagne grapes and small half cup size glass dishes. I suggest using small shorter bowls or cups so the flowers in the centerpiece don't get too high, making it difficult to see over them.  

Note: use different color grapes & flowers depending on the event and the season

Materials:

  • 3 small clear glass cups - 1/3 filled with water

  • scissors

  • large bunch of grapes

  • 8 - 9 flowers with the stems cut down

  • 4 green leaves ( I used asplenium crispy wave leaves )

  • extra greenery as needed - I used some ferns and leaves that I found outside

grapes arrangement

This is a very simple arrangement using grapes to hold the flowers in place.  I used champagne grapes and a drinking glass.  If you are going to use this arrangement on a table, I suggest using a small glass so the flowers don't get too high, making it difficult to see over them.  

Materials:

  • drinking glass 1/3 filled with water
  • scissors
  • small bunch of grapes
  • 3 - 4 flowers with stems cut down
  • 2 green leaves ( I used asplenium crispy wave leaves )
  • extra greenery as needed - I used some ferns and leaves that I found outside

Start with your drinking glass and add water enough water to fill it 1/3 of the way

Lay the first bunch of grapes across the length of the glass. It is easier to balance if you use a a section of the bunch that has grapes on both sides as shown above in the picture.

Add another bunch of grapes, crossing in the opposite direction.  Continue laying the grapes in opposite directions until the majority of the top of the glass is covered.

Add your flowers to the arrangement and start with the biggest blooms first so you can place them accordingly.

Finish by adding the smaller flowers and the the greens leaves to balance out the arrangement.
