Spring Flower Arrangement with a Twist
I wanted to create my own spring flower arrangement...but not just in a vase. Instead, I used my fruit bowl that is on a pedestal for a unique arrangement. You can use any medium-large sized bowl for this, and any other types of flowers instead. Once I set it up, this project wasn't too complicated and was really fun to put together! Here is how:
To begin you will need:
-several fresh flower stems (I used 4 different packs of flowers)
First, you fill your bowl with water a little above half way. This is so the flower stems are still able to be fresh and in water once they are in the arrangement. Next, you tape a grid across the top of the bowl. The grid allows you to put flowers in the spaces and it will hold them in place and maintain the shape of the arrangement. For this particular arrangement, I used purple and light pink tulips, mini green hydrangeas, pink and white peonies, and white ranunculus...some of my favorite types of flowers! You can use any type.
Next, I cut the tulips to a length where they would fit along the edge of the bowl well (stems going across to the opposite end of the bowl). I did the entire rim of the bowl with the tulips. Then I just filled in the middle with the hydrangeas, then the peonies, and the ranunculus. I used a few leftover tulips in the middle as well. I also saved some of the extra greenery I snipped off and filled in with it. The end result is a pretty, unique, fresh flower arrangement that holds together well!
I used this arrangement as a centerpiece for our dining table set for Easter dinner. You can't go wrong with beautiful fresh flowers as a springtime centerpiece!
