Flowers are one of those simple things in life that bring me so much joy! Those who know me well, are aware of my fondness of them, and can always find a new bouquet in my home. But we aren’t all florists and are working with a limited knowledge. (Hello, non-florist over here!) Grocery stores tend to have a limited variety of blooms available as well, so I thought it’d be helpful to share a simple floral arrangement idea for the non-florist. To re-create this arrangement yourself, read on!
A Simple Floral Arrangement Idea
for the Non-Florist
What You’ll Need:
– a vase + scissors
– two types of greens (I used seeded + gunnii eucalyptus)
– one type of colorful flower ( I used white ranunculus flowers)
I found my greens and flowers at Trader Joe’s. Eucalyptus is a staple there, and at Giant Eagle as well.
The arranging process is fairly simple. Follow the following steps to effortlessly craft your arrangement!
Step One: Trim the greens and flowers
Gather the vase you wish to use, and trim the greens and flowers to adjust to the height of your vase. To keep your flowers healthy as long as possible, you will want to trim the stems and change the water everyday. With that being said, be sure to only make small trims, as you’ll be doing this everyday.
Step Two: Arrange the greens in the vase first
Before adding flowers, arrange the greens first. Having two different types of greens adds a nice variety and creates a beautiful frame work for the blooms. Consider trimming the greens in a variety of lengths for more depth and an overall more pleasing look.
Step Three: Bring in the blooms
The last step of this process is to add your blooms! (Yay, the fun part!) I trimmed the stems of the ranunculus in a variety of heights. Spin your vase around as adding flowers, to create a full arrangement. And voilá, your arrangement is done! Trim your flowers everyday and change the water for a beautiful sight to enjoy for 1-2 weeks.
