directions

  1. Choose a vase that will best suit your space. To support the stems of the arrangement, create a grid with tape over the top of the vase (think a trellis, like when you’re baking a pie!).
  2. Start with the greens. Start by designing the length, with larger greens on one side. Gradually lower them towards the other end, creating an up-down effect. Don’t be afraid to have greens draped a little to the side, for extra dimension.
  3. Start with the largest flowers and sporadically place an odd number on the greens. As you decrease in size, continue to space the flowers in a variety of directions. Although the design may look a little messy, the flowers will ultimately appear as they would in a natural garden scene.
  4. Add your smallest flower of varying lengths to create a whimsical effect. It may be a small buttercup bud that hasn’t bloomed yet.
