With Spring looming I thought I might do some more yabbering about flowers and how easy it can be to have a gorgeous display!
I am a big fan of anything en masse but especially flowers.
First decide on the vessel and get lots of them in various sizes. Old jars, medicine bottles, tin cans, options are endless once you start looking with intent.
Flower choice, mmmm so many choices however think about how you want to feel when you look at the final arrangement, i.e happy, calm, elegant, carefree, alternative.
This makes your selection easier, because once you tune into your reaction when looking at individual blooms you will be able to group them.
Layout your vases where you would like them and if possible have your flowers close by so you have a clear visual. Then start selecting individual stems and placing them.
If space is limited then go for a jam packed single vase like the first image.
Don't forget to look around the garden for greenery.
Have fun.
