DIY: Ombre Floral Centerpiece


This afternoon we’re sharing how to make this gorgeous ombre floral centerpiece from Kiana Underwood of Tulipina. So pretty and this would make a stunning centerpiece for a spring wedding or perhaps a lovely flower arrangement for your home! I know I love playing with florals around our house on the weekends. :)

Kiana saw this color combination at the San Francisco Flower Mart one day and knew she had found her inspiration for her next arrangement. The sweet peas and ranunculus are the key elements in this arrangement, as they have the most color variation – from pink to yellow, orange and red – such that they make the perfect transitional flowers in this arrangement. Love! Let’s see how she did it…


Flowers Used: 
Water lily foliage
Sweet Pea
Ranunculus (pink)
Rose (pink)
Clematis Armandii


Step 1: Begin with the leaves and the red flowers, in this case the rose, ranunculus, and amaryllis.

Step 2: Make the transition from red to a darker orange with the ranunculus and freesia in that shade of color (orange with hint of red).

Step 3: To make a subtle and beautiful transition into pink, use the flowers that come in the necessary shades – in this case sweet peas. Arrange the sweet peas and then pink ranunculus in the center of the arrangement.

Step 4: Add the very light pink ranunculus and roses to arrive at white.


Step 5: Now add the white clematis and you have a lovley ombre!


So pretty! And remember, if you make one of our DIY projects, we’d love to see how it turned out so be sure to share with us on Instagram using the hashtag #GreenWeddingShoesDIY.
