I have partnered with Afloral, to bring you 4-weeks of 5-minute Florals. This is Week 3. I have been gifted the majority of these florals, however, I purchase flowers from AFloral all of the time, and my opinion is 100% my own. I choose to work with them because I adore their product and believe it to be the highest quality and the best price.
These arrangements are so easy, anyone can do it, not an artistic bone in your body required.
So far we have tackled two large arrangements, now lets try something a little smaller in scale. Here I will add green floral foam, cut the stems to fit my container, and add a little moss to fill in the gaps. But still as easy as can be.
If you want a one sided arrangement, meaning it will sit on a table against a wall, you will only need the florals in the front, so in that case, you only need 3 of the main flower. I am using 5 for a double sided arrangement, so 3 on one side and 2 on the other. This way I can set it only table and it is finished all around.
A very simple list of supplies.
These are the florals I used, but feel free to substitute and make the arrangement your own, there are endless possibilities.
Using a butter knife, cut your foam to fit your container. Trim you floral stems to larger than your container. I hold mine up to the container, and decide how high I want the floral to go, then clip. I started with one stem of Eucalyptus, right smack dab in the middle, then lambs ear to each side. I made a sort of triangle with the berries, and added them at different heights, for interest. I then tucked three roses close together on one side, again at different heights, and two on the back side. Then I sat back to take a look.
Stepping back to see what it needs. I see some empty spaces, down in there, and I don’t like how that looks or feels. Though this arrangement is smaller, I want a lush, full, and unique look. Here is a simple way to fill in the gaps and spruce up the impact.
You could use many different types of filler, I have chosen Sheet moss, which I will pin in with floral pins, but you could also use Spanish Moss. I have linked both for your convenience. I am going for a bit of a wild look here, and I love it.
I absolutely love the way this sweet arrangement turned out, however, I will admit the two arrangements from weeks one and two, are my favorite kind. I would always rather use an extra large container, stuffed full of florals, that I didn’t cut or shorten, in any way. These are the best type if you are like me, and love change. Additionally, you can always bend the end of the stem, if you need it a bit shorter, and then straighten it out the next time. On any given day I can take it apart, and change the entire look.
For Week-4 which is up next, I’m trying something a little different. See you next week.
