Bird of paradise flowers are long and bright, making an immediate impact. They look like a bird and are originally from South Africa, according to Teleflora. They represent joyfulness, which is a perfect mood for any wedding reception. These flowers are perfect for a centrepiece at any summer, beach or destination wedding reception because of their exotic and summery appearance.
Flock of Birds
This is a very simple and affordable centrepiece to make. Bird of paradise flowers are elegant to stand in a thin glass vase without any other flowers. Have each vase hold 12 flowers and have them face outward like a flock of birds. If you want to add a little extra to the centrepiece, add sand or white pebbles inside the vase before you add water. It will make the centrepiece look like bright birds flying over a beach.
Purchase a vase made of bamboo sticks. Put a white, slender candle in the middle of the vase. The candle should sit higher than the flowers in the vase. If it is not higher you may need to use floral foam to give it a boost. Place birds of paradise, orchids and daisies in a circle around the candle. Add a bright orange ribbon around the centre of your centrepiece for some tropical zest.
Purchase a long box with a deep centre where you can put flowers. Place a floral foam cylinder to hold the flowers in the centre of the box. Fill the rest of the box with sand and water to make it heavy enough to hold the tall flowers and won't fall over. Combine four birds of paradise with Hawaiian ginger, dendrobium orchids, anthuriums and parrot's beak heliconia. Place them in such a way that they look like birds flying over a tropical garden.
Birds of Paradise & Orange Rose Centerpiece
Place large white and clear decoration rocks in a clear vase for an elegant centrepiece featured on the OneWed website. Add three bird of paradise flowers and fill the rest of the vase with orange roses. The bird of paradise flowers should be in the centre of the vase and taller than the roses.
