With Thanksgiving coming up I thought it would be fun to share a few tips for making quick and easy arrangements at home. Creating your own arrangements is really fun and can save a lot of money. I love to have a flower-making night before I host anything at my house. It's so fun to crack open a bottle of wine and make a whole bunch of bouquets for different rooms in our home. When I'm gathering supplies to make small arrangements for my home I like to make several in one sitting. You will need scissors, fresh flowers, greens and filler flowers and fun stuff for garnishes (I used dried wheat and feathers). When choosing containers it's important to remeber you don't need anything fancy. I like to use glassware that I already have around the house. Here are some examples of quick pieces that I pulled from my kitchen before I started arranging! How to create a basic flower arrangement. 1. Create a base of green. This will make it easier to space our your larger blooms. Think of this as a blank canvas! 2. Add flowers. The greens will help you space them out evenly. I like to add them around the entire exterior of the arrangement and also have a few coming up from the top. 3. Garnish with details. This is the part where you get to add cute stuff. Choose details that for your occasion! One of my favorite details is wheat for Autumn arrangements. It is great for adding height to your bouquet as well! I also love adding feathers to my Autumn arrangements. They are so pretty and add a nice pop of black and white! With larger flowers I keep my arrangements much more simple, usually just a glass milk jar or mason jar, water and flowers! I hope you have fun creating your own festive floral designs! xo. Elsie

Genius flower arrangement. The colors of fall are so striking and wonderful. Your article will help us in floral arrangement. Thanks for sharing!
Your flower vases are nice, especially that feather including one. Because this is the first time I saw a vase with real feathers.
I totally love the addition of the feathers! I would have never thought of that…
Great tips, looks so beautiful. A Little Style Book

Strive to Thrive,
This looks so sweet! Thanks for the nice tips :), I would like doing this.
Hey Elsie, I was just wondering, I’ve never made arrangements with real flowers before. Where do you get them, and the wheat and feathers? (A florist? A grocery store?) these are beautiful, if I can get all the stuff to put them together I’d love to make them. Thanks!
Love all the arrangements above! So natural and “Fallish” – just love them, thanks for sharing! (I sometimes feel as if the weather is changing in Jamaica, and pretend it is Fall here at this time of year, by creating similar arrangements LOL)
