A few weeks ago, a friend brought some Pheasant Eye Narcissus to our house as a hostess gift. As you might recall I promised to show you how to arrange a bunch of flowers like this before my website freaked out. Even though the Daffodils have come and gone in our yards, this type of flower arranging can be applicable to any flower when you have multiples of the same stem with a showy bud. For instance, Iris are in bloom right now -they’d be perfect for this method- only you’d need a taller vase than the one used in this post.With all the buds at the same height and the stems cut to the same length, my friend tied the bunch loosely with moss green polka dot grosgrain ribbon to transport them to our house. It was such a super-sweet look that when I arranged them and transferred the flowers into a vase – I kept the bow as a part of the design. I just love the army-green-mossy color of the ribbon. So much so, I am thinking about finding myself a spool!Do you see what is happening above? Each bud has it’s own breathing space in the arrangement. As I mentioned before, she had all the buds at the same height and the stems cut at the same length – if you have a bunch of flowers, it is likely yours will be approximately the same length both ways too. Hold them in your left hand and arrange them with your right. Grasping just under the head of the flower, lift them gently into place working your way around the entire arrangement so that it looks balanced from every direction.Once you’ve got the heights looking right, cut them all off the same length at the stem. (Ideally you’ll cut about two inches off the bottom so that the flowers will be sure to drink water when you place them in the vase.) If you arrange the flowers this way, when you get them into the vase they will fall at approximately the same height that you arranged them when they were in your hand.And speaking of peonies, do you remember last Spring when I taught you how to arrange peonies from the garden -or- do you need more detailed instructions on how to arrange flowers in a glass container?
