Start by placing the magnolia stems down the center of your dining table. My table will be set for 4, so I knew from the start that I would need a very long garland, and keep in mind that you need to leave space at the end for the place settings.

After placing the first magnolia stem, you will place the second stem with the leaves covering the stem of the first piece. Continue this process to the middle of the table and repeat the same process starting from the other end of the table.

Now, start placing your fruit and berries within the garland and play around with the placement, there’s no wrong or right. Also, place the vessel that you will use for any floral/candle/food arrangement in the middle of the garland. This will help you with the placement of the fruit and berries.
