1.Pick up a large head of cabbage at grocery store for your floral centerpiece. The larger the cabbage, the better and more room you can deal with. Trim the bottom of your cabbage so it sits level. Remove the outer loose leaves and save those that aren’t wilted.

5.After cutting down though the top of the cabbage, it is easy to flip the cabbage over and cut through the bottom to meet in the middle, to fit the glass inside the cabbage.

7.Green hydrangea blooms were strategically placed along the outside edge of the glass so they would spill over and conceal the cut edge of the cabbage. . .

The flowers in their glass were refrigerated separately , so prepare your arrangement ahead of time and must keep it fresh! Refrigerating tulips also helps keep them from opening up too quickly.
