Directions

  1. Choose a vase that will best suit your space. To support the arrangement’s stems, create a grid out of tape across the top of the vase (think lattice, like when making a pie!).
  2. Begin with greens. Start with designing the length, with taller greens on one side. Gradually bring them down toward the other end, creating a high-low effect. Don’t be afraid to have greens draping down the side a bit, for additional dimension.
  3. Start with the largest blooms and sporadically place an odd number throughout the greens. Decreasing in size, continue spacing flowers in a variety of directions. While the design may feel a bit messy, ultimately the blooms will appear just as they would in a natural garden scene.
  4. Add your smallest flower in varying lengths, to create a whimsical effect. This can be a tiny ranunculus bud that has yet to bloom.
