We all try our hand at flower styling at some point. Especially when we purchase cut flowers from the supermarket and make up our own flower arrangements at home. I have been arranging non-stop recently, I thought I would share some photos and ideas with my readers.
In this arrangement, I have ranunculus and tulips. There is also tons of foliage from the hedges. The lady who owned our house before us was a very keen gardener. I am so lucky to have inherited all the evergreen she had previously planted as it really does make a difference to my vases and it seems making flower arrangements at home is a real easy task for me because of this.
I wanted to use up my Ranunculus (small peach flowers) as they are not coping too well through the chilly nights and coming towards the end of their plant life anyway. I have placed them around the rim of the vase, slightly lower than the tulips. This will give a great visual to seated guests viewing the arrangement from the side.
For my second arrangement that day, I have used the same flowers but in a different color pallet. I had been asked to style a tablescape for a lunch affair and decided to add some copper and gold tone to pop against the pink. This is a small waterproof washbag from Primark and it cost me just one pound. I popped a glass vase inside and filled with flowers. I also added a blossom branch from my tree.
I think I will leave it there for this week and save another batch of ideas for another post. In the meantime please do check out this quick tutorial of how to arrange a vase using cut flowers. Feel free to subscribe for future tips and tricks.
Have a great week xx
