Whether you need a floral arrangement for a hostess gift or for your own dining room table, grocery store florals are a fun way to get creative and save a little money. Spring is the perfect time to perfect your floral arranging skills with all the pretty colors available. Start your weekend off beautifully with this Easter-ready arrangement!
What You Will Need
Atleast two different kinds of flowers, one having a long stem. We chose tulips and hydrangeas.
Rubber bands (optional, for holding multiple stems together)
If you want your flowers to last for more than a couple days, add some water and plant food to the bottom of the bowl before beginning.
Step 1: Lay strips of masking tape across the bowl, horizontally, placing the pieces approximately two inches apart.
Step 2: Repeat with vertical strips.
Step 3: Once you’ve created a masking tape grid, trim the strips of tape so that they barely hang over the sides of the bowl.
Step 4: Beginning with your long-stemmed flowers, place each flower in a grid square along the bottom of the bowl. You will find that some of your stems will need to be trimmed.
Step 5: Repeat until you have placed all your long-stemmed flowers, creating a “bed” on one side of the bowl.
Step 6: Begin placing the other flowers in the row above your long-stemmed flowers, taking special care to straighten and lay flat any leaves.
Step 7: Repeat until your bowl is full.
Step 8: When you’ve place all of the flowers, scan the bowl for any showing tape, and rearrange your flowers to cover it.
