The Flower Creation Station™ (Otherwise know as the NoBrella® Flower Vase) provides a unique and innovative way to decorate your patio table’s empty umbrella hole.
Once you witness the amazing transformation that happens after you place the Flower Creation Station™ in your patio table’s empty umbrella hole you will never look at a patio table’s umbrella hole quite the same way.
The Flower Creation Station fits into your patio table’s empty umbrella hole ring (when you are not using an umbrella) and allows you to display your favorite fresh cut or artificial flowers.
The Flower Creation Station provides a low profile, wind resistant, flower vase that is easy to use and allows anybody to create beautiful floral arrangements.
Often times when you use a flower vase on your patio table it is too bulky and gets in the way or can be easily knocked over by the wind.
The unique patented design of the Flower Creation Station™ allows the stems of the flowers to sit below the surface of the table so that the flowers do not block your view across the table. This allows you to enjoy both your flowers and your guests.
For the gardeners out there that are blessed with a green thumb and have lots of flowers around the house, The Flower Creation Station provides a great way for you and your family to enjoy your homegrown flowers close up.
“Our favorite time of year is when we start using the flowers from our own garden!”
Getting the most out of your Flower Creation Station™
Don’t over do it. The best part is it does not take a lot of flowers to create a stunning centerpiece. The first words of advice are- Don’t over do it! Really… make sure you keep this in mind as you create your arrangements. A typical bouquet of flowers from the supermarket or flower shop will most likely be more than enough for the Flower Creation Station. We typically fill 2-3 Creation Stations™ using only one bundle of flowers.
Cut your flowers to size. Once you have chosen your flowers you will want to trim the flowers to a good length. Cutting them to a max height of 17″ and a minimum height of 9″ is typically best. We like to create arrangement with at least 3 heights so we use a 3rd cut size of about 13″ to get started. If you are using artificial flowers you can usually bend the stem rather than cut them to make the different lengths.
Create your centerpiece. Once your flowers are cut to size, one by one, place your flowers in the Flower Creation Station. Start with a shorter cut and then add a longer cut and then fill with a middle cut. Fine tune as needed as you go along. At this point, you may want to remove a few of the leaves from the stems that may be crowding up at the base. Continue to add flowers to your liking if needed but you might be happy there. The rule of thumb is if you add something and it does not “make it look better” remove it and try it again or don’t use it. Making small changes to the position or height of your flowers can make big differences.
Keep it simple. Again, simple arrangements will always look better than and overcrowded bundle of flowers with no room between the flowers. We find that often times just one flower can be enough for some settings. In this case we would recommend that you push a paper towel down in around the stem of the flower to get the flower to stand exactly how you want it.
Have fun and be creative. The goal is to enjoy and have fun and let your creative juices flow. A visit to the store for a few seasonal decorations can help during the holidays to add a little touch of holiday spirit to your arrangements.
