Fresh and classic, flowers are the my favourite way to liven up my home. This post, I am teaming up with local florist and friend, Stefanie, from The Bourbon Rose Floral Design Co. to give you her four easy steps to create your own simple floral arrangement this season!
What you will need:
Mason Jar (tip: the narrow opening makes it easy for the flowers to stay where you want them!)
Flower food packet (tip: this increases the longevity of the blooms!)
3 types of greenery (tip: choosing a few different varieties of greens adds depth & visual interest to the arrangement)
Flowers (tip: try to get one or two large blooms for use as a focal flowers, and smaller ones to fill out the arrangement. Lots of different types of blooms with make your arrangement look super professional!)
How to Create A Simple Floral Arrangement
Step 1: Arrange your greenery
This is the foundation of the arrangement – where you get the shape from – if you want it wide and skinny or round and puffy or totally wild, here is your chance! We used fresh Euphorbia from Chappus Farms, Seeded Eucalyptus and Israeli Ruscus.
Step 2- Add a focal flower
Step 3- Fill out with accent flowers
Step 4- Add a ribbon for gift giving or your table!
General Floral Tips from The Bourbon Rose Floral Design Co.
Make sure you remove the foliage from the area of the stems that will placed in the water to prevent bacteria build up. Also, you can keep the arrangement fresh longer by changing out the water everyday!
