How to Make a Beautiful Flower Arrangement in your Home

Valentine's Day is coming fast in addition to Spring. Two perfect reasons to have fresh flowers in your home! Bud vases make flower arranging easy and fun. 

What you will need

Materials:

Flowers: Choose a variety of colors, textures, and heights to create visual interest. Consider using both focal flowers (larger, statement blooms) and filler flowers (smaller, delicate blooms).

Greenery: This adds structure and complements the flowers. Eucalyptus, ferns, or even leafy branches work well.

Vase: Select a vase that complements the style of your arrangement and the flower stems.

Sharp knife or shears


Steps:

Prepare your workspace: Clean your work surface and gather all your materials.

Prep the flowers: Remove any wilted leaves or foliage below the waterline. Cut the stems diagonally at an angle, about 1-2 inches from the bottom. This increases surface area for water absorption.

Prepare the vase: Fill the vase halfway with clean water and add floral preservative according to the instructions (if using).

Create a base: Start with greenery. Arrange sprigs in the vase to create a grid-like structure or an inverted triangle for stability.

Add focal flowers: Place your largest or most striking flowers strategically, considering height and balance. Avoid overcrowding the vase.

Incorporate filler flowers: Fill in gaps and add texture with your smaller blooms. Aim for a natural, cascading effect.

Step back and refine: Take a step back and assess your arrangement from all sides. Adjust flower placement, trim stems further, or add more greenery if needed.
