Yesterday we shared our love for wearing Spring Florals and today we are sharing an easy DIY floral arrangement! Thanks to Meagan from MV Florals, our go to floral guru! She created this gorgeous arrangement that, if you ask me, would look really pretty on the table this Mother’s Day. Or even as a gift for the special Mama in your life!

1. Choose your foliage. Remove any leaves at the very bottom of each stem.
I used a mix of wax flower, ruscus, lisianthus,and bay laurel.
2. Choose the blooms you would like to use. Remove any leaves at the bottom of your flower stems, and gently remove the guard petals and thorns on the roses (the guard petals are the outer petals on the rose to protect the inner, more delicate petals).
In this arrangement I used a mix of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, veronica, sweet pea, and lisianthus.
4. Start by creating the line and shape you want with greenery. Use a mix of greenery to give your arrangement more texture. I start from the outside and work my way into the middle.
6. Place your bigger focal flower next. In this arrangement I used the peonies and garden roses as my focal flowers. After they were placed, it made it easier to fill in everywhere else with smaller blooms and greenery.
