I love having fresh flowers in my house. They remind me to "slow down and smell the roses," literally. They're a great physical symbol for relaxation and, added bonus, they always make me smile.
Below I outline my go-to moves for making a fast floral arragement.
HOLLY'S FAST FLORAL ARRANGEMENT
Because we all love flowers, but who really has the time or money to make a gorgeous pinterest-worthy-arrangement? Well, I don't. Here's what I do instead:
Buy flowers during your grocery run. You think you need to go to some fancy floral shop to get good blooms, but if they're in season, they'll be at the grocery store - and will look GREAT at a GREAT price (PERIOD THE END).
Worried you don't have a cute container? Don't be, I'm sure you have SOMETHING laying around that'll do the trick. Just keep to clean lines and solid colors and you can't go wrong. Keeping the container solid will hide all the stems and water, which gives the arrangement an easy to achieve, elevated look
When I first started making flower arrangements, I thought you just put flowers in a vase. I was wrong, you need a flower frog to get those blooms to stand up with gumption instead of just flopping around. I used a pin flower frog for this arrangement.
Cut flowers are various heights and stick the bottoms directly into the flower frog. Fill in empty spaces with left over greens. Done!
WHAT YOU NEED
Flower Frog (Cage, glass, or pin)
Small amount of adhesive putty (i used a little to keep my flower frog in place)
WHAT I USED & WHERE I FOUND IT
Fresh-Cut Tulips (Local grocery store)
The pin flower frog was one I had previously purchased to use as a table number holder at my wedding reception (Vintage, Etsy)
The container used to be the one that held binder clips on my desk at my corporate gig (Target)
