Flower Dome Centerpiece - A Two Second Tutorial

At our recent Mother's Day Tea, we had the most lovely centerpiece on the main table.

It was just the right height as to not impede conversation.  Simple and elegant.  It looked like a professional had spent hours arranging the lavender roses just so, but that was not the case. 

Here is how we did it...

We used a round casserole dish as our base.  This is our grandmother's china casserole. 

We purchased a dome shaped florist "frog" from a craft store.  Then we shaved the edges off so that it fit snuggling into the base.
We purchased two dozen roses, but really and stiff stemmed flower will do. 

Finally, we inserted the cut flowers into the dome until it was completely covered.  We ended up utilizing the greenery to fill in the bottom portion of the florist frog. 

And there you have it!  This project took about 10 minutes, but it supplied hours of beauty to our tea table.
