March means spring is here…or coming soon. So, I’ve been getting the house freshened up with some fun spring colors and flowers. While I love real flowers, silk have so much better value! I made a super easy spring flower arrangement last year as part of our living room refresh and love that I can use it year after year. Making your own flower arrangement is super easy which just a few supplies. Plus, it’s such a great way to get creative. Anyone can do this! I happen to love flower arranging. My mom and I even did all the flowers for my wedding (I should do a post on that sometime! 😉 ).
To put together your own spring arrangement, I recommend having an idea of what size vase you are planning on using to start with. For my arrangement, I knew that I wanted to use this chartreuse-ish vase that I had already. So, I knew the amount of space I had to work with going in. You’ll want to choose a complimentary combination of flowers. Odd numbers of each type works best. For this, I had a bunch that included 5 of the white (which I now don’t remember what they are) and 3 of the pink daisies. Then, I also like to include some leaves and/or grasses to fill and create some height or extra visual interest. Since I had the most white, I started with those. Since they were in one bunch, I needed to separate them & shorten them for the vase. So, I started by cutting the bunch apart into single stems. Because of the shape of this vase & the flowers I was working with, I didn’t even need to bother with floral foam. But, if you’re using a vase with a wider opening, it’s something you’ll probably want to use! After the 5 white flowers were placed, I added in the 3 pink. Once those were arranged how I liked, then I added in the grassy fillers. Make sure you step back and take a look as you’re working. Once you like the shape and overall look, you’re done. That’s it. Easy & quick (and pretty inexpensive).
