Happy Monday friends – I hope you had a good weekend. Last week I was a part of a fun, White Vase Floral Challenge with some friends on Instagram. I will be sharing some more details about that at the end of this post…
Our goal was to create an arrangement using one of the most common decor items – a white vase. I wanted to break down the steps on how I created mine. It really was easy to do and I think would be to replicate also!
1. Choose your vase and decide if you will be using faux or real flowers. I did both!
2. Start by inserting the tallest florals first as seen in picture 2.
3. Then fil the base of the arrangement with full and draping flowers.
4. Continue to fill now with some flowers that have a mid height compared to the two other flower sizes you started with. Do not feel like you have to add all the same flowers or in this case, I just added one hydrangea to the side and that is ok to do too =)!
5. Lastly, insert your real flowers (I did not use water so unfortunaltely this arrangement would only last through a dinner or event but you could look into those little contaners that hold water and attach to individual stems. In this bouquet they were the purple flowers you see and even if they were faux, I would have waited till the end to insert the fillers or skinny tall pieces…
6. That is it! Again, this can work for any flower (real or faux) as long as you are paying attention to the height details. Start tall, work small and end with middle fillers…
The most fun about this challenge was doing it alongside some very talented friends, each who put thier own personal spin and style into their arrangement. Enjoy the flowery tour and don’t forget to check each of their blogs or feeds out!
