I’ve been giving little sneak peeks on Instagram of this flower arrangement. It is my favorite and my best.
It inspired a spring printable I created as part of my friend, Kristen’s, Spring Printable Hop. I’ll share that at the end of this post. 🙂
I made it because, all-of-a-sudden, ranunculus are available at Trader Joe’s and I wanted something pretty and colorful for my Spring Home Tour (going live tomorrow). I picked up this milk glass compote when I went antiquing a few weeks ago, and I finally had the perfect opportunity to use the flower frog I got at Vintage Market Days last fall.
I started out by using spray roses first, because they have woody stems are are super sturdy. If my Ranunculus needed something to lean against, I knew those spray roses would be there. I added a few floppy eucalyptus on either side, a small forsythia branch, and then started out filling the arrangement out. To do this, I trimmed down the Ranunculus and shoved them every which way in the frog until the vase was full. After 3 days, the spray roses were slightly wilted but those Ranunculus had grown a couple inches!!! I have never had them grow on me… they usually get all mushy when I just shove them in a normal vase together. Turns out they like to be trimmed and individually positioned. It’s been almost a week and arrangement is still going strong (and several inches taller)!
I was really stumped at first for what I was going to do for my printable because it seems like everyone and their mother are doing watercolors or something along those lines. So I asked my friend, Layla from the Lettered Cottage, what she thought would be a good idea and she said… why not photograph some flowers and use a pretty font? She even sent me a Monet quote, saying it reminded her of me:
“I must have flowers,
Truer words were never said! I really do need flowers in my life all the time.
So, on Saturday, I took apart my flower arrangement temporarily, and did some flat-lay flower arrangements.
