Red Dahlia Urn Wedding Centerpiece

Flowers take on an Impressionistic air when immersed in water. Place a small bowl inside a larger one, and fill both with water. Using a bamboo skewer, gently push flower heads (de-stemmed dahlias are ideal) into the space between inner and outer containers. Fill the smaller bowl with full-stemmed flowers. Footed urn, from Carnevale. All flowers, by Pat Divello.
