Making Monday – Pretty Spring Floral Arrangements

March 31, 2014

I can’t quite believe it’s Monday again already! I’ve got lot’s of great crafty ideas for the coming weeks, and this week I thought I’d try something new. I’ve never really put my hand to any kind of floristry before and I absolutely love flowers so it’s something I really wanted to try.

So I grabbed a few bits in Hobbycraft and made a few arrangements that I’m really happy with. I really like an English Garden look, so I just used bits from the garden and some roses from Tescos.

I put together a little tutorial video explaining how I created this look and took loads of pictures, as there’s nothing I love to photograph more than flowers.

Here’s the video tutorial so you can make something similar…

The little pots I used are available from Hobbycraft you can buy them here.

The Florist’s Foam can be bought here.

These were my two practice runs I did before filming the video. I used slightly fewer leaves and I think I like the subtler ones a little better. How beautiful is the teacup? I picked it up in a local charity shop this morning, and couldn’t not include it in my photographs!

This is the arrangement featured in the video, I have a really big garden which is still slightly over grown as we’ve not managed to tame it yet. There was so much greenery to choose from so I got creative and tried a bit of everything.

These gorgeous roses were part of a small bunch of flowers I picked up in Tesco for £5 this morning. They are pretty and very similar to the flowers I had in my wedding bouquet. Next time I do something like this I’ll probably plan ahead and pop to a flower market to save a little money and maybe get something a bit more unusual.

The small white flowers (I’m sorry I don’t know what they’re called) come from a small house plant which I picked up at a supermarket for about £1.50 I think. Don’t the little flowers look cute next to the big roses.

Have you ever tried flower arranging, is it something you would like to try? xxx

    These are so wonderfully lovely!!! You have a great eye for this, dear gal. If I was holding a big event or wedding, I’d love to have (hire) you to do the floral arrangements for me (if we lived nearby, I mean).
