I hope you enjoyed that… and can’t wait to try it yourself. One of the best takeaways from this video for me is about the way the base was designed. Gluing the liners together like this makes the base reusable. And using a glue gun makes it very easy to change the material used to cover it.

Here’s Where To Find What You Need

The Phalaenopsis orchid plants used to make this centerpiece are sold almost everywhere these days, from supermarket floral departments to big-box stores and warehouse clubs. Or buy them where I would… from your local florist.

If you want to substitute silk orchids, you can find a terrific selection online at NearlyNatural or craft sites like Michaels or HobbyLobby might be worth a look.

If you don’t want to plane your own wood shavings, you can buy small (8 oz) bags of preserved moss which serve the same purpose, covering the design mechanics.

Glad To See You’ve Hung With Me To This Point

My name is Greg Johnson, the guy who created this blog, and a retail florist for more than 40 years. I’m here to share loads of truly outstanding floral design tutorials with you. That’s it! That’s all.


There’s something you need to know. There is another reason that really led to the creation of this site. See, I’m sort of addicted to watching tutorials like the orchid centerpiece video you just took a look at, and I honestly just wanted a place that I controlled to share and comment on my favorites.

But I’m also an unapologetic opportunist. Not gonna lie.

I don’t see anything wrong with earning a little money from sponsorships and product recommendations. I hope you don’t either.

The point is, this site does provide me with a small income. But let me be completely clear… selling you stuff isn’t my goal here. If you see a product on this site that you think will help, that’s great! But if you’re just not interested, no problem.

Sharing cool floral design how-tos with good people like you is fun for me!

So make this site one that you return to! I’ll keep sharing more tutorials and information on topics like flowers, weddings, and plants… for starters.
