Be still my heart! This shoot gave me all of the creative feelings. When people ask me what I would be in another life, the answer is always either a florist or Kate Middleton! Let’s be honest, Kate Middleton definitely trumps florist, but that’s not the point. Point is, I love working with flowers. It is fascinating to me how many different kinds there are and I am thoroughly enjoying learning more and more each shoot that I do.

When I first began entertaining pieces on GFG, I was intimidated by the idea of making my own floral arrangements. Towards the end of last year, I ran across the most beautiful eucalyptus at Trader Joe's and I couldn't help but try my hand at making my own arrangement!

I came home and did what any modern day woman would do... I googled. I spent the entire weekend googling and researching the how tos of arranging flowers. The more that I researched, the more that I found that there really is not one perfect way to arrange flowers - it is all up to preference! What a relief, right?!

Once I was able to get over my fear of doing it wrong, I have had so much fun with creating and playing with my own arrangements. I wanted to share this simple Spring DIY arrangement today because I know if I have been intimidated by it, more than likely so have some of you!

Below are a several things that I came across repeatedly in my research that I have used as helpful guidelines.

Helpful Guidelines

Wet foam blocks - Not only does the wet foam help to keep your flowers in place, but it also gives the flowers the perfect amount of water to live their best life!

Start with your greens - Greenery is the foundation of the arrangement. Simply starting can be the hardest part, but when you start by loosely placing your greenery, the foundation and shape of the arrangement starts to take form. 

Begin adding your flowers - I have found it best to go in layers, starting with the largest flowers and working down to the smallest. I begin by placing my larger flowers at varying heights across the arrangement. Good news is that you can always adjust these as you work your way down to the smaller buds!

Add in your fillers - Fillers may be one of the most important aspects to an arrangement. They help to "fluff" and add texture to the arrangement. 

There you have it! There are so many ways to make floral arrangements and in my eyes you can't go wrong if you try! 

How To Make a Spring Floral Arrangement:

Peach Roses - large buds
White Asiatic Lilies - medium buds/texture
Peach Mini Carnations - small buds
