Flower Arranging: Deconstruction



IMG_1179



I used to be the type of girl who was intimidated by flower arranging. To be honest, I’m hardly a pro {and I’m dying to take a flower arranging class… Anyone? Anyone?}. However, I refuse to let my “amateur” status deter me from constantly having fresh flowers. If you follow me on Instagram,{and you should}, you know I have a fresh flower obsession. {I might need rehab}.

Fresh flowers brighten up a room and bring life to any space. Yet they don’t have to be expensive, time consuming or daunting.

This week, I purchased an inexpensive bouquet at my local grocery store {vibrant colors are the key}. With some deconstruction, a few unique vessels and a pretty tray, I think I created a spectacular arrangement/centerpiece.

Step One: Gather interesting vessels. I stuck with clear glass and tried to find a mix of short, narrow and tall. I mixed perfume bottles, these bud vases,  apothecary bottles, an empty wine bottle and a mason jar.

Step Two: Take apart your bouquet. Remove extra leaves and foliage so that might be submerged. Cut apart the bouquet and mix the flowers in each vessel. Think about height, color and unique pairings.

Step Three: Place the vessels a top a tray or inside the lid of a colorful box. Enjoy!

    love that you created this from an inexpensive bouquet! and, would totally be your date to a flower arranging class. 🙂 I did one once a few years back and it was so fun.
