How far in advance of the wedding did you make this or how long did it last?

Yes, I second a previous poster’s question – how far in advance can you make this?

Also, how long did it take you to make it?

This is exactly what I wanted to do for my centerpieces! I was going to pay for a florist because I thought it would be too difficult. Can you tell me how you did this step by step? Also how long it lasted too??

Thanks so much! Can’t wait to try out my tester 🙂 Where are you ordering your carnations from?

I am also using carnations in my centerpieces in a 7 in bubble bowl type vase and doing the same just making a big ball on top with them!  We did a run thru the first time with 5 in cube vase (what i originally thought i wanted until i found my new ones for 1.99 a piece 🙂  ) and it only took us about 15 minutes as well..maybe even less…once you can figure out how long to cut the stems its goes by really fast!! 

We are ordering our carnations from Samsclub.com and you get 150 stems for 67.00 which puts the cost per stem around .44!  🙂

Rhondalynn, can I ask where you found your vases? Was it a local find or someplace online? Thanks!
