In June, there is likely to be some cow parsley still in the hedgerows. If you stick it in wet oasis (in a plastic bag) it could be used a filler to add some frothiness. We had round tables, and one jug on each table with the tall gladioli in. Each had four gladioli tied back to back to give an all round effect. They have to be tied in bud and take three days to then open , so we did quite a bit of practising.
I love the crates. Could you see how many square pots it will take to fill it. I am thinking maybe 2 x 4 of 4 inch square pots. Then you can plan what to go in to give the right mix.
I have seen some really nice displays of all one flower, cut to the same size, say all lavender or small roses, packed in.
What I suggest is you have a trial run, and practice before the day. Garden centres are a good source of plants at that time of year, but also remember that the supermarkets often have good cut flowers if necessary to fill the gaps.
