|notice the flower arrangement by the door- they are all over her house and they are always different- trust me, I notice!|
1. Make a plan of the idea in your head so when you go to get your flowers you sound like you know what you're doing
|really rough draft- what can I say- I'm an artist.|
PS- be sure to have a little water in there and be cutting all the stems diagonally before you place them...
- Salal to make the vase line not seem like a border of 'flowers can only go above this point'.
-Myrtle to mark how tall you want the arrangement to be in each direction
-And leather-leaf fern to fill in spaces
4. Form flowers (aka the main attraction- whatever is biggest, has the best shape, is the focal point) near the bottom and center
-A lot of my mass flowers ended up in the back, because although the arrangement is mostly viewed from one side, it still needs to look good for the few people sitting behind it.
-And rearrange anything out of place.
Oh how I loved that finished feeling and being surrounded by all the cut off greens all over the floor. Sometimes it's fun to make a huge mess in the process- makes the whole thing feel more artsy.
They look a lot smaller when placed in the foyer than they did in my house...
