How To Make A Beautiful Wild Flower Arrangement

I love to have flowers on the table at all times when possible, as they make a room come alive and are small in size yet big in beauty. There is nothing as elegant as a bare table with a large bouquet of flowers in the center in a pretty container!

I'm not a trained florist and over the years have found that I love to just toss together and arrangement with either flowers from the market or sometimes straight out of my garden.

Simple wild arrangements are unfussy and allow the florals to speak for themselves. Keep reading for the list of flowers that I used make up this arrangement and some basic floral tips.

* Seeded eucalyptus
* Baby blue eucalyptus
* Pink peonies
* White ranunculus
* Sword fern
* Agonis
* Queen Anne’s lace
* Kale variety

To make your bouquet, fill a pitcher or vase 1/3 full of fresh water and if available you can add plant food. Trim the ends of the floral stems at a sharp angle with small garden shears or SHARP SCISSORS. Start by adding bunches of eucalyptus allowing them to drape over the side of the container and then fill in with additional flowers to balance and for color.

I talked about forcing PEONIES to open in THIS POST and it works every time, so be sure to check that out.
