1. To create a flowing floral centerpiece, start with a pedestal vase. Construct a base in the bowl of the vessel with ornamental kale. You’ll build the rest of the arrangement on top and around the kale.

Tip: Choose your vase after you pick your flowers so you can make sure they complement each other.

2. Create the asymmetry of the centerpiece by placing a taller hydrangea branch on the opposite side of the kale.

3. Add the climbing roses both underneath and above the hydrangea. Place a couple of kale stems in between the blooms.

4. Add the single roses to the arrangement. As you put flowers in the vase, take a step back to examine your arrangement and check that you’re placing flowers and foliage just where you need them.

Tip: Create your arrangement while looking in a mirror, so you can see all sides (as your guests will!).

5. Finally, add a single clematis bloom for color and texture.
