A contemporary centerpieces has a modern look, taking advantage of smooth, clean lines. This design consist of a separate top and bottom piece. We will create the container by wrapping leaves with decorative wire to form a simple wreath. The top design clusters flowers with tight groupings, giving a clean modern look.

This design in this workshop is more advanced than the design in the 9:00 AM workshop, however, beginners should be able to complete the project.
