Watering Can / Vintage Canister or (Any Vase of Your Choice)
Wet Floral Foam
Flowers from your own Garden
Scissors + Water
1. Soak the wet foam in water until it won’t absorb any more water. If your can/ canister is water tight, adding a little more water to the bottom is nice, but not necessary if you have a bumpy transport + if you discover the can leaks. The foam will hold enough water to keep the flowers fresh for days, and a little more can be added later if needed.
2. Make sure to trim each flower stem to ensure it can uptake water. Also, strip all of the lower leaves.
3. If you have a same type/color flower, a simple mounded shape makes a cute bouquet. If you are working with a mixed bouquet, try + make a simple base from filler flowers and showcase the fancier ones by letting those stick up higher. Don’t fret about it. Flowers in themselves are pretty, if you don’t overpack them. If you end up with too many flowers, simply toss the rest in a vase.
4. No matter how your arrangement comes out, everyone will love it because nothing feels more appropriate for spring than a home filled with beautiful flowers!
