I can only go so long without flowers, I’ve realized. When I reached that limit this week, I ordered some blooms from The Floral Reserve. Their arrival was a tangible shift.
Arranging these blooms, I felt focused and grateful. Flowers bring joy and life, beauty and nature into our homes. Even in these overwhelming times, their power is transformative.
I grabbed a few quick snapshots as my arrangement took shape. If you can get your hands on some blooms, click through these images to follow along.
Getting Started : Tools
All of the tools I used are in our Arrangement Workshop.
Step 1 : Base
Tape your floral netting into your vessel with floral tape. I used a flower frog in the bottom, but that’s optional.
Step 2 : Composition
I started the shape of my composition with peach quince, adding hellebores for depth.
Step 3 : Depth
I added peach ranunculus in clusters, continuing to build at various levels.
Step 4 : Pop
A pop of yellow daffodils - clustered to one side for more impact.
Step 5: Delicate
Finish the arrangement with your most delicate detail flower. I used poppies.
Pro tip: If you’re also using poppies, sear the ends of them - rather than cutting. This video will show you how:
Thanks for following along! I hope there are some flowers in your world.
