In yesterday’s post on arranging flowers, I explained how I convinced my friend Shawna who was 40 weeks pregnant, to come over and show me how to arrange corner store flowers.
Yesterday’s post went through picking the right flowers, selecting the right vessel for the look, and building a cute side table arrangement and a gorgeous focal centrepiece.
Today we are going to look at making a mini-bouquet to give and a rustic BBQ centrepiece.
For the mini bouquet to give Shawna suggest just using the same concept as yesterday’s centrepiece flowers.
Shawna ended her arrangement by wrapping it in twine which she purchased at the dollar store.
Arrangement #4 – Rustic Arrangement
Shawna used the rest of the flowers for this rustic arrangement. As it’s rustic, the arrangement is more forgiving so if you don’t have the right numbers of flowers left it’s less important. As well, if you don’t have a lot of flowers left, the arrangement can be thin and still look nice. She used mason jars wrapped in twine which is both cheap and cheerful
And that’s it! I can’t wait to start arranging my own flowers and trying out the different techniques that she showed me. The flowers are stunning and brighten up the room beautifully.
Thank you Shawna and a big congratulations to you and your family! (She ended up giving birth 48 hours after doing these arrangements!)
