    Arranging Flowers - Great For Parties!

    Great for Parties of all kinds!

    All the foliage is from the garden - the flowers I had to buy - except the bluebells.
    Its really not that hard once you start.

    Always start with the tallest flower or foliage and you slowly build from that. it an be a simple arrangement or elaborate. hope that you enjoy these few tips.
    If you have any Oasis soak well before you use it.

    Very minimal - with little foliage

    For soft stemmed flowers, its best to use something to make a hole in the oasis - a chopstick is great

    Starting again with the tallest flower build up a delicate arrangement and place foliage low,

    Draw attention to the sleek stems, adding some fern behind to give a bit of a backdrop

    This simple arrangement just has a pincushion and some glass pebbles. Starting with the tallest, build slowly.

    finishing off with a few flowers at the bottom, push the pebbles over.

    Start with the largest piece of foliage.

    start by placing the highest flower and work downwards

    Add foliage carefully so as the enhance but not detract.

    Finding a bowl, wooden tray or something like that can often set off your arrangement - and anything goes from a teapot to a tumbler

    Here are some that you might find great to use for a party

    Great for an Anniversary or Birthday Party

    A nice arrangement for Christmas - you can wire a few small Christmas balls and add them to any arrangement of flowers

    Welcome in the New Year with a pretty display of flowers

    Hi Joy~

    How beautiful! You are a talented lady! Love the creative use of different wooden vessels, and the smart tip about using the taller stem first.'ve inspired me to get cracking and pick some fresh greenery from the garden, and see what I come up with. Will post here, if I get a photo.

    Thanks for sharing!
