Usually when the seasons change, I like to change out my floral arrangements. I am due for a new one for my dining room table, and as I had these two pots that my daughter had given me for Mother’s Day, I decided to use them.
I went to Michaels and bought duplicates of each floral stem, as well as different sizes.
Some moss to cover the styrofoam bases.
I approached this project one pot at a time and, after cutting the styrofoam to fit inside one of the pots, I started adding florals. I realized something as I thought I was done. I never buy enough to make a really full arrangement! All the florals I bought for two arrangements were good for one!
I think that from now on, when I am buying florals to put together my own arrangement, I will get what I think I need, then go back down the aisle and get another handful. This will give me the fuller arrangements that are not only what I like, but that look better. No wonder I am always fussing with my florals!
So if you find that you are not happy with the arrangements you put together yourself, maybe you just need to put a few more floral stems in. Maybe you are short-changing your arrangements like I was. Give it a try and see if you change your mind.
