Simple Floral Arrangements
There are so many fun and creative ways of adding a floral arrangement to your beautifully set table. Though it may seem daunting, with these top tips for floral arranging you’ll see how fun and easy it is to make your own floral statement!
The first thing you’ll need to do is care for your fresh flowers. Be sure to put them in water as soon as they get home. For larger blooms, such as roses, warm water can help the flower flourish. Make sure to trim the stem by 1 inch prior to placing them in an arrangement – this will allow the flower to drink up water!
When choosing flowers, go for a simple statement with all of the same bloom or a selection of blooms in a single color palette.
Choosing the vessel for your arrangement is almost as exciting as choosing your flowers. Although a traditional vase is lovely, think of other items you may have that could work as charming accents to your table. Try using your favorite water pitcher or tea cup to make a statement.
Keeping your flowers in place is simple with a few quick steps. One way to keep your blooms steady is to utilize water soaked floral foam. You will need to water the foam daily, but it will help keep your flowers upright and hydrated. Alternately, you can use clear floral tape to create a grid at the top of your vessel. This trick is especially helpful with top-heavy blooms.
Next time you see some beautiful flowers at your local market or in your own garden, find your favorites and create a statement floral arrangement yourself!
