Easy Flower Arranging

I have the gardening thumb that is baby poop brown. It’s mostly brown, but there are smidgens of green streaked in there somewhere. You’re welcome for the ghastly visual. If you think that flower arranging is already easy, great. Kudos to you. But there may be a reader or two out there who feel like I do, and that house decor is so difficult, you might as well add a blanket or pillow to that horrid stain on your couch.

After my post about grilled cheese sandwiches, I decided that I had better put some other reads to the test. This one is supposed to be the easiest flower arrangements. Read on to find out if it worked or not.

So the idea is you can use any vase and arrange flowers using scotch tape. It looks simple enough, but will my flowers look picture perfect or a perfect mess? I was determined to find out.

I used to work for a hotel and had my fair share of center piece arrangements. Flower arranging was better left to the professionals since I had no experience and usually everything flower wise looked rushed and sloppy. Not what you’d want for your wedding or event!

I don’t receive flowers very often. It’s going to look bad for Michael, but the reality is that I would rather have a plant to grow rather than look at and die in just a few days. The problem with that is some plants need time to grow or are not in season yet.

But one of my knockout roses are in full bloom, and I am ready to try this post out for myself! So off I went to cut some roses. I found some wild white flowers that I thought looked nice with my pink knockouts.

So after my post about grilled cheese sandwiches, I decided that I had better put some other reads to the test. This one is supposed to be the easiest flower arrangements. Read on to find out if it worked or not.

The first step was to get a vase and some scotch tape. But I didn’t have a vase, so I used this small glass instead.

Read more…You are to place the tap over the top like this.

And continue like this…

And this. Until I realized that I probably should have added water first. Oops.

I dabbled it dry trying to salvage my project. Looks like I shouldn’t quit my day job.

Okay, now that it was mostly dry, here’s the finished taping.

So I decided to play with the flowers and see what I came up with.

And I quickly realized that I didn’t have enough flowers. So I went back outside ad clipped some more. This time, I even found some wild ginger leaves. They kinda look like hearts to me!

So I was rearranging and I started to like what I was seeing.

A little snip here. And maybe a clip or two there! Too much on one side. And… finally, I was happy! Emeril says bam! Voila is pretty popular. Maybe I will try my own catch phrase.

Vivacious, baby! Still not quite sure about that one. But I do like the final product. Nice full arrangement. Not bad for a first time. Now this method has potential. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that the more you practice this one, the better.

Flowertastic? Nah. I don’t like that one either. Well, I’ll keep on working on my catch phrases. At least you know that this project works and is worth the tinkering. Keep on reading. After all, let me make the mistakes for you. That way, you’ll look fantastic while I clean up the mess.
