Ever since the 1960s, when the Marigold lost out to the Rose as the American National Flower, the lowly marigold has suffered a bit of an inferiority complex. It need not be so…after all, the lovely marigolds are still blooming strong in our fall gardens, while most roses have lost their bloom. Besides, the cheery marigold is just as pretty as any rose (in my humble opinion) in my fall centerpiece!
You, too, can help us encourage the humble marigold by creating this lovely centerpiece. All you need is a bowl, floral foam, marigolds and a few dried flowers.
Begin with a shallow bowl. I prefer a footed bowl, but any bowl will work.
Cut oasis floral foam to fit your bowl and water generously.
Add the marigolds to the oasis...
Arranging evenly around the bowl.
Finally, add purple and blue dried flowers.
That’s it! This gorgeous centerpiece will last more than a week.
Don’t forget to water!
