Fashionably Styling Your Blooms!

Styling Your Blooms

I’m obsessed with flowers. The way I’m obsessed with all things celebratory. Perhaps it’s my love for soirees that keeps me always yearning for more. Simply put, they add beauty to a room! So, since my obsessions usually get the best of me I’ve researched a million and one ways on how to style my floral arrangements. I’ve tried it all. Tall vases, short vases, round vases, square vases.  White hydrangeas, pink peonies, red roses, and the list goes on and on. But ultimately I realized this, no matter what is tickling my fancy using the following steps will always get me some stylish looking blooms.

Here’s what you will need (I know stating the obvious):

1.       A Fashionable Vessel

2.       Beautiful Blooms

3.       Water/Flower Food

4.       Flower cutting scissors

Step 1: Fill your vase up with water

Step 2: Begin by measuring and cutting your stems at the height of your vase (be sure to cut them so they are resting on the edge of your vase). Repeat until you have gone full circle.

Step 3: Begin to cut the next set of stems at a slightly longer length, so that they are able to nest between each of the previously placed stems. Repeat until you have gone full circle.

Step 4: Continue the same process as steps 2 and 3 by nestling each stem between two others until you can’t anymore.

Step 5: Place one last stem at the very top and at the very middle of your circle to close it off.
