Happy Earth Day!
Flowers are my personal therapy. Can you believe you’ll learn how to arrange flowers at home, like a pro?
I don’t know about you but, flowers can instantly brighten up my day (even during a pandemic/apocalyspe/covid drama) or during my worst anxious days. They have a je ne sais quoi I’m glued to it, at a point, I have a dedicated monthly budget just for flowers, voila!
I usually visit my local farmers market and get a bunch of different flowers and play with them, arranging them to look like a pro. One of my dreams since I was 15 is to work with flowers, own a flower shop, and like today, get them every week and just be happy.
So now, let’s talk about all the steps to create a gorgeous wild arrangement, yes, you! all by yourself.
Prep and tools you’ll need
– Vase and water
– floral tape – to create a grid like pattern on the opening of the vase to help you organize them better
– floral shears
My favourite flowers that you should be getting next time
– Wax Flower
– Iceland Poppy
How to start
- When you’re choosing flowers for your arrangement, you’ll need to pick: greens for the base/fillers, focal flowers, secondary flowers.
- Fill the vase with water, remove the leaves, and cut the stem at an angle (always!). I love adding branches in different lengths, creating a perfect structure!
- As you saw in the video, I started with the greens, at different angles and created a support for the rest of the blooms.
- Then, continue adding the focal flowers (some of them together, as I did with my ranunculus), then your secondary and fillers covering all the holes you’re missing.
- Arrange them in different levels (avoiding a rounded look)
The beauty of flower arranging? You can play with your heights, combinations, style and always have a fabulous and happy result. Hope this guide will help you play with your bouquets at home next time!
