Something fun today… we are shopping the garden for beautiful blooming flowers and greens to create a simple summer garden foraged floral arrangement.
So much fun to be joining my friend Julie Blanner today for this inspired floral post. We are both shopping our gardens and creating an arrangement made with what we have on hand and in bloom.
This one is a favorite wee bouquet- and you know – it literally came together just as I wandered the garden. I wasn’t sure what I would be inspired to use or what was blooming- but clippers in hand- I wandered and gathered up bits of this and that to set in a vintage silver trophy. I actually love how it turned out- a bit wonky and wild in form- which is my favorite look & it has some of my favorites flowers and greens.
- Earth Angel Garden Roses
- Cecile Brunner Climbing roses
And the best thing? I didn’t have to leave the house to get a beautiful fresh arrangement, this one was all free since it was foraged and it was created in just a few minutes.
Get the Look
Start with your greens to create a nice base for your flowers.
Note: You will notice that all of the flowers and greens are cut quite short. This is because of the container but also because some of the roses are somewhat dainty and don’t have long stems.
After you layer your greens in the base of the container- start tucking in the next largest flowers. I used the hellebores and then the peonies first.
After that- I tucked in the larger garden roses and then the climbing roses and then added any other bits I felt it needed.
I love how it turned out- a tad on the wonky and wild side (like me) haha and just such a pretty little petite arrangement for tucking anywhere.
Head on over to Julie’s video to see the beauty she has created too!
Happy Wednesday all!
