Spring! It's here! It's finally here! And this is exactly what it feels like:
Happy spring! I know we're all still freaking out a little (a lot) about it being spring. I've lost my mind, and I actually cut some cherry blossom branches down from trees in my yard. Let me just offer this disclaimer: I don't think it's possible for a person to have less knowledge of cherry blossoms than me; I can't even say for sure that these are real cherry blossoms. But I do know that I put whatever these are in one of my vintage amber glass bottles with some dusty miller and a spray rose, and I made a super cheap, pretty floral arrangement that screams, "OMG! IT'S FINALLY SPRING!" I took some pics, so I could share how I did it with you.
My finished cherry blossom floral arrangement. I cut my branches down last night, so I kept them in a vase with some water in my refrigerator to preserve them until I was ready to work with them today.
This is everything you need. I got my spray rose and dusty miller from Wholefoods.
1. Put your sprig of dusty miller (that's this dusty, leafy-looking stuff) in your jar or bottle.
For your own arrangements, I'd recommend a jar or bottle with a medium or narrow mouth, as oppose to a vase.
2. Add your shorter cherry blossom branch to your arrangement.
I put my smaller branch between my two bigger leaves to make a more balanced composition.
3. Put your longer cherry blossom branch on the opposite side of your arrangement.
4. Put your spray rose in the middle, and you're done! Simple, right?
'Belles, tell me what you think! What's your favorite thing about spring? Are you going to try this floral arrangement at home? Leave a comment below!
