We've got a special guest post for you today from our friends, photographer Emily Reiter, and floral designer Amy Jordan. They're sharing a DIY bridal shower centerpiece tutorial that is pretty, easy, and if you like floral arranging - fun!
This is a simple arrangement that anyone can put together with a combination of flowers from the flower mart (or your local grocery store) and ferns from your backyard (or your neighbor’s–we won’t tell!).
What you need:
- vase of your choice
- (1) bunch of white sweet peas
- (5) stems of white ranunculus
- (6) stems of safari sunset
- (5) stems of leather fern
- (5) stems of sword fern
- a few Salal leaves
How to make it:
1. She started out by making a “grid” using the stems of the ferns. Personally, I recommend achieving this by taping a grid on the vase (it’s just easier for us novices to hold stems in place).
2. Next, Amy used the safari sunset to create the basic shape of the arrangement.
3. She then filled in with the white sweet peas to create a full, whimsical element
4. Amy finished with creamy white ranunculus to fill in any holes. That’s it!
Greenery is so popular right now and gives a fresh, modern look to pretty much any arrangement. You can use so many different kinds to create depth and texture, then add your favorite color for a pop (or keep it neutral with white blooms, like Amy did for this one).
