Grape Kebab Floral Centerpiece

Add an edible touch to an elegant floral arrangement with a mix of fresh flowers topped with grape kebabs. For this project, you'll need: a pewter or silver urn, floral foam, floral shears, utility knife, water, two bunches of hydrangea, two bunches of lilies, two bunches of grapes, package of 12 kebabs and measuring tape.

Materials Needed

urn-shaped container
floral foam
floral shears
utility or craft knife
flowers of your choice (we used hydrangea and lilies)
grapes of your choice (white, red or black)
12 wooden skewers
measuring tape

Create a Color Scheme

You can use green, red or purple (black) grapes for this project. Once the color of grapes has been selected, choose flowers with similar colors to coordinate. Violet hydrangea and lilac lilies are excellent choices for pairing with red or purple grapes.

Prep Floral Foam

Use measuring tape to determine the width of the urn; cut floral foam to size with a utility knife (Image 1). Place cut foam in a dish of water and leave it to soak till saturated (Image 2).

Add Grapes to Skewers

Slide grapes onto skewers, being sure to leave enough of the skewer’s end uncovered so you can anchor it in the foam.

Create Arrangement

Place soaked foam in urn; it should fit snugly enough that a few inches of foam is visible above the top of the urn. Begin adding flowers to arrangement, starting at the bottom (Image 1) and working your way up to the top (Image 2).

Add Skewers

Insert all grape skewers into the exposed floral foam along the top of the urn (Image 1). Make sure they’re placed closely enough together to mask any of the green foam peeking through (Image 2).
