While flipping through an issue of Family Circle yesterday afternoon, I came across a clever and quick way of arranging flowers…one that was so simple, even a flower-arranging novice like myself felt certain of success. And this morning, while watching an episode of Barefoot Contessa (LOVE her!), she showed the exact same technique. It was fate, I needed to try it for myself. I’m happy to say, it was a success! My 5 minute arrangement was quick to put together, and impressive to look at. I’ll show you how it’s done….
foam floral ball
mum stems (you can use any flower you want, though)
Step 1: Gather your supplies, and soak your floral ball in water. This doesn’t take long, the foam quickly absorbed the water I added to the bowl.
Step 2: Trim your flowers, leaving about an inch or so of stem on each flower. I found my mum bushes at Kroger…and they were on sale for $2.99…I bought two, but actually only used one.
Step 3: Place your ball into your vase, and start inserting the flowers into the foam. I found that they went in easier if I used a wooden skewer to pre-make the holes. Depending on how thick your stems are, this may not be necessary.
Keep going….you’re almost there….
And you’re done. See how easy that was? I only made one, but wish I had bought the materials for me-this turned out so cute!
Happiest of Fridays to you!
