When I saw that Erin at House of Earnest was going to do a series of blog posts on Beginner Blooms, demonstrating how to make an arrangement, starting simple and working up I thought it would be fun to create them along with her and learn how to create my own bouquet for my home. The first post she did uses branches and a vase. I think I can handle that :) Refer to Erin's blog post here for the steps.
Here is my version:
I got my vase from Hobby Lobby. They have a lot of different affordable options. Keep in mind the vase is like shoes for an outfit -- it can make or break it. It's important to have the right size depending on the arrangement your doing. I cut the branches right from a tree in our yard. And that's it! This is the first post in the series so it was real simple and did not require a lot of different materials. I am looking forward to more :)
Post pictures in the comments if you decide to try and create one for yourself! Happy Sunday everyone!
