Simple Floral Arrangements



After a few sunny days, we had a dark rainy day. Well of course! When I should have been doing some house cleaning and ironing, I chose to play with a couple of arrangements. Those jobs will wait another day. ha!

Arrangement #1


I spotted this tall pottery vase in the corner of the family room and thought...hmmm, I think that my "real feel" tulips from Hobby Lobby would look good in it. And I was right! :-) 

Arrangement #2



When I was in Hobby Lobby after Christmas I picked up a couple of small greenery wreaths at 50% off. 

They have been laying around the house and today was the day I created an arrangement with them. When I bought them I thought of at least a half dozen ways to use them around the house and this is one of them.


Step 1, I began with a $2 plastic charger as the base. 

Step 2, Then I placed the wreath on top of the charger. And then...


Step 3...I put a candle in the middle. I wanted the charger underneath the wreath so that if there should be any candle wax to drip it would not get onto a good tablecloth or nice wood table. 




I think the wreath/candle idea would look lovely with a few, or several, down the middle of a long table. One could add some fresh baby's breath to make the arrangement even more special. 


Bonus...my funny bunny arrangement!

  1. Easter Island, indeed! The tulips look real...some of the silks available now are a far cry from the ones made years ago. I do have a fern in a basket that is 27 years old and it still looks pretty good. Have a good week...I'm adjusting to daylight savings time...ugh... xoxo

  10. Your Easter island is so cute Sheila. And the wreath with the candle in the middle is also very pretty. It may have been a rainy day but you had sunshine in the house.
