One way to make orchids look even more magical is by submerging them in water. You can create beautiful centerpieces for your tables with a few simple supplies.

Start by adding a layer of glass gems to the bottom of each vase. Next, cut the blossoms off of the orchids, placing a small handful of them inside each of the vases. Once the vases are filled with orchids, pour in some water, stopping just below the top of the vase. Finish off the centerpieces by placing a floating candle on top of the water, effectively sealing the orchids inside. These centerpieces are incredibly elegant and can add a sense of sophistication to your event.
An Orchid-Covered Wedding Cake
The way that orchids grow makes them perfect for decorating wedding cakes. The blossoms are usually located on a long stem, giving them a trailing, vine-like appearance. This makes them easy to drape around your wedding cake, allowing them to wind their way down around each of the layers of the cake. This works best on cakes that have been covered with fondant icing since the smooth surface of the fondant creates the perfect backdrop for the flowers.
Create Orchid-Covered Trees
If you are looking for show-stopping centerpieces, consider creating orchid-covered trees. Start by purchasing a single manzanita branch for each of your tables. You can find these branches at many craft stores. If you can’t find them locally, you can always order them online.
Place each branch in a sturdy vase or planter, making sure that it won’t wobble or tip over. Consider adding extra weight to the bottom of the vase to provide additional support. Next, use thin wire to attach orchid blossoms and strings of crystals to the tree, hanging them off of the branches like ornaments. Add as few or as many orchids as you want, depending on the look that you are going for. Live orchids are a beautiful choice. If you prefer, you can also use artificial orchids so that you can create the centerpieces well ahead of time.
These stunning orchid decorations for weddings can add a beautiful touch to your wedding decor. They are easy to create and don’t take a lot of time or materials.
