Good afternoon, friends! Or should I say, Good Morning (he-he)!
I crafted this bouquet a while ago, and it is funny to see me sporting breezy Summer clothes in these shots, when I am now snuggled warmly in a long-sleeve T underneath a sweater vest as I type. The weather here has changed fast, and like most times, it can’t seem to make up it’s mind!
We have come to the very last week of the flower season I’m sorry to say. I don’t know about all of you, but I am really going to miss waltzing through the Summer days full of sunshine bliss, and flowers galore!
As you can see, the selection of flowers is not very great in this bouquet. You could say they are more like leftovers from all of the flowers Nellie and I were using the day it was made. Thus, it only shows you how lovely an arrangement can be with just a few ingredients.
Whenever I put the sunflowers in the vase, they drooped down. Huh. What should I do? Well, it kind of makes an arrangement look more interesting and life-like if you let the flowers do what they naturally do. So if sunflowers tend to droop, let them droop, and fill in around them.
Make sure to add a lot of volume to the top, so your arrangement doesn’t look flat. Perk it up a bit!
Enjoy the new bright fall colors!
