I may have mentioned it a few times already this month, but January and February...
Good Morning! Monday again. I hate to tell you all (I promise I am not bragging) but I am out of the country again! I am in Cyprus. The reason why I am here is because my beautiful sister gets married tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. I have been asked to photograph the wedding and I am so very nervous but honoured to be asked! I hope you are all well today and raring to go on this lovely Monday.
Today I am pleased to bring you a flower related DIY. I love fresh flowers and it seems like all our Boho readers do too! If you are looking at creating a DIY wedding but don’t want to use jam jars then this table arrangement is perfect for you. Thank you to Waterbaby flowers for providing us with all the information for today’s DIY post
This is a simple vase arrangement with a wonderfully light, pretty result that would be a fabulous addition to any dinner party table or mantelpiece. Using fresh, seasonal flowers with movement, colour and texture you can create something that looks complex in just a few easy steps.
STEP 1) Find a medium sized vase that complements the colours of the flowers
STEP 2) Add some bleeding heart at each side of the vase leaving a space in the centre, so the flowers just touch the edge of the vase.
STEP 3) Add the spiraea just behind and slightly taller than the bleeding hearts letting the stems curve out to each side
STEP 4) Add some peonies just left of the centre of the arrangement making each one a little taller than the first so they all have enough space to be seen
STEP 5) Add several stems of bluebells to the right of the the arrangement towards the back
STEP 6) Spread some fritillaries in an arc shape throughout the arrangement
STEP 7) Finish with a small group of forget-me-nots at the front of the vase near the peonies for a delicate pop of colour.
Ta da! Well done, you did it! Here’s the final result and some close ups of these gorgeous seasonal Spring beauties
