Arranging florals at home can be intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be, with a little creativity. You don’t need to look further than your cupboard, china cabinet, or bar for the perfect vessels to house your arrangements. Here’s how!
Tea for Two. Your grandmother’s delicate tea cups can be refashioned as a darling, feminine way to showcase thick stemmed flowers. Roses, ranunculus, or even carnations can be cut short and mounded tightly in a tea cup.
Get Fruity. Arrange thinly sliced lemon slices (deseeded, of course) along the perimeter of a lowball glass. The acidity of the lemon is good for the flowers, and will extend their lifespan!
How Low Can You Go? Use a lowball or two to house various flowers and greens for a casually elegant look. A petite arrangement like this is a perfect addition to a smaller area such as a powder room or an office.
Safety in Numbers. Gather petite vases of various heights and shapes, and use flowers of various heights, shapes and colors. Place the group atop a pretty platter or tray, and voila – you’ve got yourself a sophisticated centerpiece.
Channel Your Inner Martha Stewart. Spray paint wine, beer, juice and soda bottles, or glass food jars. Fill with various greens and succulents for an organic, interesting look. Pairing the arrangements with simple tea light candles will cast a sophisticated glow.
