Small pebbles for weight

Yellow floral bush
Flowers taken from floral bushes
First, take a piece of the pool noodle and place it in your container. Next, add som small stones to give the container some weight. Add a second piece of pool noodle across the top. Set aside while you make your centerpiece.
Now, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire. Fold it in half and place it in the Bowdabra. This is your slip knot. Tuck the ends underneath to stay out of the way while you make your arrangement.
Next, place some greenery on both sides of the Bowdabra. Now, add some florals on each side. Your choice of floral colors.
Now, lay in the battery powered lights. Then, add some more florals on top to cover the mechanics of the lights.
Now take some daisy ribbon and dovetail the ends. Lay it in the Bowdabra for a tail. Then, add some more matching ribbon folding and twisting to make loops back and forth. Make sure the right side is facing up.
Scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Thread the wire through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove, separate the wires, turn to the back and tie a knot.
Finally, take the completed floral picnic table centerpiece and using the stems from the florals push down into the pool noodle in the container. Shape and arrange your florals and you bow and you have the best picnic table centerpiece to use for all your spring/summer outdoor events!
