Let’s get started! Here are the easy steps…
Choose your foliage… make sure you select a variety 2-4 different types in order to introduce texture and different shades to your arrangement. I chose seeded eucalyptus, camellia leaf, pampas grass and some fall foliage. A lot of this you might be able to find in your own backyard! ;)
Next, choose your blooms! Pick a variety of colors and sizes to make your arrangement unique and attractive. I had a lot of fun picking these fall colored blooms from my local flower mart. I chose caramel antik garden roses, burgundy dahlias and ranunculas.
Once you are happy with the shape the greens have given your arrangement start with flowers! I like to add a few big blooms first to determine my focal points. For this piece I used the garden rose as my focal flower.
Then I added a few smaller blooms in order to give my arrangement some height. Have fun adding the variety of blooms!
