DIY | FLORAL ARRANGEMENT

You are having a couple of friends over dinner. You are looking to put together a decor that speaks you care.. yet not over the top.

Guests or No guests, fresh floral arrangement is always the answer !

Personally for me, there is something very appealing about a very organic, free flowing, an almost wild arrangement of flowers. I find them more interesting than the perfectly arranged display.

Ofcourse, the boutique floral arrangements have their space. But for an intimate gathering, I would be a free flower child – any day!

So for this DIY, I have chosen an organic fall of the most amazing Aster flowers!

 

ASTER: THE DAISY-LIKE BEAUTIES!

I love the beautiful array of colour combinations of the Aster flowers. These daisy-like beauties are easy to set up, perennial, long stemmed, lasts awhile – what’s not to love!

So, for this arrangement, I have gone with a combination of purplish pink Asters. I would recommend choosing a color scheme keeping your surroundings in mind. You can never go wrong with white.

However, do play around with the vivacious colors that Aster has to offer!

Tip: Carefully remove Asters from the packaging, cut an inch of the stem ends at an angle and store it in a water bucket. Avoid direct sunlight.

 

 

CLEAR & LARGE

This is a very important step when you are planning your floral arrangement. The availability & choice of flowers & vases go hand in hand when deciding what to create.

For this arrangement, I have used a clear vase, since I would like the the movement of the floral decor to be visible.

Also, I have chosen a long vase, to support the long stems. The mouth of the vase is wide enough to allow the flower bunch to lounge around gracefully.

Tip: Ensure the vase is wiped clean after the water has been filled. Why? Coz, the beauty always lies in details 🙂

 

 

LET IT FLOW

Now comes the fun part. Have fun creating a flow with the Asters. I didn’t trim too much of the stalk ends, as I wanted the movement.

I created a bunch of Asters and carelessly laid them against the rim of the vase. This automatically creates a beautiful movement of the flowers.

Once you have done that, move back and take a look from the front, top & side view. Do you like what you see? You can play around the fringes of flowers and finalize it.

Tip: Be delicate while playing around with the arrangement. Don’t mess around too much. Remember, the beauty is in the imperfection.

 

 

PERFECTLY IMPERFECT

Ensure that the background drapes, furniture, etc complement the floral arrangement.

I placed the vase on a white table. I ensured the leaning front of the flowers faced the window and the sun. This small touch gave the arrangement a whole new meaning.

I was already romanticizing and framing a story in my head!

So, yea.. most importantly, no 2 arrangements may look the same. That’s fine & that’s the beauty of it!

Happy “DO & DIY (read Die)” ing 😉
