Who doesn’t enjoy a beautiful flower arrangement? They’re perfect home decor all year round, but because of the blooming flowers, they’re especially beautiful in spring and summer. We have tips and tricks for making beautiful flower arrangements for you to keep around your home throughout the summer months!
Choose A Container
This is your first step. You can choose a plain and simple glass vase, you could choose a mason jar, or you could choose a teapot. Literally any container you think is beautiful will work.
Securing The Bottom
You’ll need to place something in the bottom of the container, such as glass chips or pebbles, to secure the stems. It isn’t as necessary for slim containers, but it’s still suggested.
Types Of Flowers
Next, we’re going to choose the flowers we would like to use. There are three different types that will typically go in a flower arrangement. They are line, mass, and filler flowers.
These are the flowers that pretty much define the shape of the overall arrangement. They give the flower arrangement height and width. You can use snapdragons, dendrobium orchids, or calla lilies; really any tall flower.
Mass flowers are the focal flowers that attract attention, such as roses, tulips, or daisies. They’re always placed in the center.
These flowers are simply used to just fill up empty space, hence the name. Filler flowers normally grows in clusters on a single stem. Examples of filler flowers are feverfews, ferns, and chrysanthemums.
Create The Arrangement
Size the mass flower to the container and cut the stem at an angle. Place all sized mass flowers in the container. Add in the line flowers to produce the height and width of the flower arrangement. Organize them how you would like and add in the filler flowers to any leftover empty space. Make sure there is no back side to the arrangement. You want every angle to look beautiful.
Add in a 1/2 tsp of sugar with a little water to help the absorption, and then, add in the rest of the water to fill the container up halfway.
