Who in your life could use some fresh flowers to brighten their day? A struggling friend, a new mom, neighbors who recently moved in next door? Today on DoSayGive.com, Stylist and Floral designer, Christina Brockman of Huckleberry Collective, is showing us how to pick up a few floral varieties at Trader Joe’s and turn them into a stunning floral arrangement for someone’s home – or even your own!
I am so thankful to from Huckleberry Collective for guest posting and letting us in on how easy it is to make a modern yet friendly arrangement:
Step One. Select your blooms. The flowers featured here are all from my local Trader Joe’s store.
Step 2. Select your container (you can find a cylinder container similar to this at Target or Hobby Lobby) and grid the top with floral tape.
Step 3. Begin “Greening” the outside and center squares of your container grid. The Greening process helps set the container for the flowers, and creates a nest.
Step 4. Next, you’ll begin adding in your florals in a triangle shape, and working in 3’s. I started with Alstroemeria because it has lots of greenery.
Step 5. Next I began to mix up what florals, but continued working in my triangle shape, slowly building texture throughout.
You will reach a point where you begin to fill in the holes of your arrangement. You will break from the rule of 3 and add in where you see needs it.
Step 7. Once completed, fill container with water, add in your floral food and enjoy!
- Spray Roses
- A Container
- Floral Tape
- Snips or Scissors for Flowers
- Floral Food (should come with flowers)
- Greenery and Florals of varying colors and textures (to taste or like)
- Make sure all of your flowers are free of leaves. Removing the leaves and ensuring none of them are in your water ensures that your arrangement will last longer.
- Snip stems at an angle. This helps them to absorb more water.
- Cutting flowers at different heights helps create dimension.
Thank you so much, Christina! You can see more of her beautiful styling on her website and on Instagram.
