    Cupcakes are everywhere these days!

    Cupcakes are all the rage now. These once tiny cakes reserved for children’s birthday parties are now the highlight of wedding receptions, baby showers, fancy parties and every occasion in between!

    So Emily Smith, The DCH’s floral arranger¬†extraordinaire, developed a fun workshop for creating a cupcake centerpiece that even features “icing” with a cherry on top!

    All you need for this arrangement is a container, a soaked oasis block, 20 colored carnations, 5 white carnations, a cherry on some floral wire and pretty ribbon for the finishing touch. If you like, greens can be added, but they are not necessary. We made a large cupcake arrangement as well as a small one in this workshop.

    Simply cut the oasis into a small, curved dome. Then, starting at the bottom, push two rows of colored carnations into the oasis, finishing the top with white and a cherry or strawberry garnish. Tucking some pretty ribbon around your creation makes it pretty as a picture and ready to grace your table.

    It is easier to add the greens at the base before the carnations if you choose to use them. Trachelium was used here.
