DIY | Styling Floral Arrangements
This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Bloom & Wild. All opinions are mine alone. #collectivebias #bloomandwildBeing peony season and all, I thought this would be a great time to share my tips on styling floral arrangements. I love fresh flowers at home, but it's taken a lot of Just Thinking of You bouquets from Justin before I actually learned how to turn the gift into a living room decor piece. We like to have a good relationship with a local floral delivery team who we can count on. It's kind of on the priority list every time we move. heh So, when I had the chance to order a bouquet from Bloom & Wild, I was ecstatic to find this sweet company who delivers through letterboxes all over the UK. Letterboxes and florals. Swoon.Choose a variety of florals:+ focal piece, the largest bloom+ greens+ secondary piece+fillersPrep your vase:+ fill your vase about halfway with water+ use tape to create a grid to hold your florals in placePrep your flowers:+ cut at least 2cm off each stem at an angle, depending on how tall your vase is.+ remove leaves below water lineStyle your flowers:+ start with the focal pieces. place them towards the center of your grid.+ add your greens and secondary pieces, filling in the grid from the center to the outside and making sure to fill in any holes.+ finish your display with your fillers to add accent shapes and color.I chose The Eloise because of my obsession with peonies and all and wrote a note to myself (it's like a rule if you order something and there's an 'add a note' section, right??). I started by crossing the peony stems, then added the bupleurum and yellow solidago into the grid. The craspedia went in last to add an extra pop of yellow. I like a bit of a wild + free look to my arrangements, which is balanced by symmetry and color palette. If you live in the UK or have friends here (ahemwinknudge), Bloom & Wild is offering £10 if you want to try them out!
