I’m excited to start a new series today that shares easy floral arrangements you can actually do yourself at home! A while back my business partner, Julie and I put together these and it took no more than 30 minutes — and the best part is that although we can order flowers at wholesale costs all of these stems came from my local grocery store.
For the large arrangement above Julie started with a clear glass cylinder vase — and created a grid with clear floral tape on top of the vase, then filled it with water. She created a base with greens, mixing a variety of textures, keeping it heavier in the middle but allowing some greens to fan out to give it that organic, wild feel. To finish the arrangement she added just a few white Vendela roses.
The second concept couldn’t be easier! I sourced these vintage brass bud vases on Ebay and Etsy for my wedding and filled them with a mix of greens and one Vendela rose in each. They look great around the house in different vignettes but also placed down the middle of a dining table!
