Here we are Week 2 of #simplefloralfridays Last week I shared he simplest of simple, by adding a single stem to a favorite bottle, and it made all the difference to the top of my kitchen hutch, be sure to check that out HERE. I am SUPER excited that Afloral has sponsored me, so of corse all my florals are from them, and they are top notch quality. I love that you order and they come right to your door. Woo Hoo!!!! Doing it yourself, isn’t that always a much more inexpensive way, no matter what you are trying to do. Even adding florals to your home, by making your own, saves money. However, so many sweet friends out there think because they are not a professional, that they can’t create there own arrangements. I am here to tell you, that is not true. You absolutely can do this. I would suggest picking a color pallet, just one or two accent colors and the rest all neutrals, so greenery, white, and even a few dried things would mix well. If you keep everything in a coordinating color pallet, you will be able to use and reuse your things a million ways. I also like to add something fresh to my collection every once in awhile to give myself even more options. Purchase a huge basket, it could be a plastic hamper or laundry basket, or something decorative, to store all your unused florals in, and you will have them ready when ever you are. Here I am showing you how to fill a large vessel, in my case an Antique,white, ironstone, pitcher, filled to the brim. Choose the florals, some greenery three different florals, two white one pink, another softer green grennery, and then one stem of some blooming sedum for interest. I spread them allot on the table, in piles, and in the order I wanted toads them to the container.
Here you see both angles. Then I picked up the entire bunch, one at a time in order, so starting with the seeded Eucalyptus down or up depending which shot you are looking at. Then I dropped it into the pitcher and fluffed, done. Anyone can make a beautiful arrangement using this method.
Here is the finished arrangement styled on my mantle.
Below I added this sweet, lush, handmade, Eucalyptus Wreath made by my sweet friend from Mustard Seed Beginnings for some dimension.
I hope this inspires you to try a little floral arranging on your own.
