How To Make A DIY Floating Flower Table Display

This easy-to-follow tutorial will show you how to make a beautiful, eye-catching floating flower table display for your next party or special event!

There are very few things I love more than flowers. And one of them just so happens to be repurposing old DIYs. Ah, the sweet smell of recycling your own labor!

I made a DIY Floating Flower Table Display out of the exact same tutorial for these DIY macaron displays from last year.

I only had to make one very small improvement for it to work. So I’d say that’s a win!

I actually made these for Jared’s sister’s bridal shower. (I’m sharing that tomorrow!) And they were a hit.

You can make a ton of them for pretty cheap in all five minutes, PLUS reuse them for macarons.

Basically, you have no reason not to DIY these babies and sprinkle them everywhere like confetti. Okay, so that’s a bit much, but you get my drift…

Also, try these simple DIY jumbo confetti poppers for New Year’s Eve and beyond.

You can follow the same tutorial as this macaron DIY, but this time you’ll need a little extra suction because of the weight of the flowers.

How To Make DIY Floating Flower Table Display

Step 1 – To make them stick, I just added a small pinch of sticky putty to the bottom of the blocks before pushing them down onto the surface in place.

Step 2 – Once your blocks are in place, just snip each bloom and slide the stem down over the end of the gold rod and you’re all set.

Step 1 – First, decide what type of table you would like to create. 

There are many different options available, so take some time to browse through pictures online or in magazines to get an idea of what you like. 

Once you have a general idea, start collecting supplies. You will need a sturdy table, some sort of base or stand, and a variety of different-sized vases or containers. 

Choose a color scheme for your flowers, and then start gathering the blooms you need.

Step 2 – Next, create a mock-up of your table by arranging the vases and containers on the surface. This will help you determine how much space you have to work with and what type of arrangement will look best. 

Once you have a general idea of the layout, start filling the vases with water and adding your flowers.

I told you they were easy peasy! I also love the idea of doing one long piece of acrylic to stick down into a statement centerpiece. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see them in action at Caitlin’s shower!

  1. These look great. My question is how long do they last once made as I’m worried about cutting them the day before the event.

    • Hi Leslie! Most cut flowers that aren’t watered will start wilting after a few hours. You can cut them before an event and keep them in the fridge (away from fruits and vegetables about 4-6 hours) before your event. Or you could assemble them and spritz them with water. Hope this helps!

  2. how many acrylic blocks (comes in package of 3) to buy? Looks like I need many to have the same colorful effects in your picture! Really love idea! I will try it but trying to find all the supplies.

    • Hi Suz! The ones that we purchased on Amazon come in a package of 3. And we did 9 total. You can find acrylic blocks at the craft stores but we’ve had better luck online. You may be able to find them cheaper on ebay. Hope this helps!

  3. This is an amazing project. I am definitely considering these for my wedding!

    How long do the flowers typically last once they are placed on the rod (also planning on using similar flowers as above)?
