Step one to creating a beautiful arrangement, for any occasion, is foraging for flowers! Local markets, grocery stores and flower shops can provide flowers year round. If you don’t feel like braving the markets, simply step outside and forage for wildflowers and local blooms. Fall brings in lovely sunflowers and iris, along with many other beautiful species of flora. Whichever way you choose to get flowers, make it fun! Invite friends to help create arrangements, or simply take your time browsing all of the beautiful colors and options.

Arranging your own bouquet is a special way to dress up your tabletop or even just to have as decor around the house. Guests will feel welcomed and bringing life indoors will bring in a new level of peace. To begin your arrangement, it is important to organize your blooms according to the statement pieces and the filler flowers. Filler flowers will be the bulkier, bunched flowers, such as the eucalyptus in the following photos. The statement flowers in your arrangement are the star of the show. Sometimes it is fun to incorporate bulbs that have not yet bloomed, so you can watch your creation change daily!

Once you have your flowers organized, start to have fun with arranging! Show your creativity and don’t be afraid to make up an out-of-the-box arrangement. Flowers have beautiful imperfections that will elevate your arrangement and add a level of obscurity that intrigues the eye. This could be something as simple as a bent stem, making that particular flower drape over the rest – this adds dimension to your bouquet and will lead the eye across the whole creation.

The beauty of arranging a flower bouquet is– there is no right or wrong way to do it! The end aesthetic is what you are left with. Deep colors, such as maroon and plum will bring your arrangement a fall vibe. Adding in tones of brown with sticks or black flowers will also add a fall depth and natural tone. Play around with hanging stems that look as if they are wiggling out of the arrangement for a unique element.

In addition to the flowers, the vase you use can help to accomplish the overall aesthetic you’re looking for. For obscure arrangements, it is nice to have an array of eclectic vases to mix and match with. For a more modern chic aesthetic, a clean white or clear vase is suitable. Even recycling wine bottles or other glass bottles can make great vases, while giving the recycled materials a fresh purpose.

Feel inspired to go out and forage for your next bouquet? Enlighten your next tabletop setting or coffee table nook by bringing the fall blooms in!

Tips to Make Your Modern Home an Urban Jungle

Submerge yourself in greenery and the aroma of blooms. Having houseplants is not only aesthetically pleasing, the act of nurturing plants is also incredibly therapeutic.  They create a fresh, natural ambiance, giving a glowing green spark of life to any space. Having plants indoors has been proven to lower blood pressure and stress levels, increase concentration, decrease mental fatigue, and reduce air particulates and toxins. Plants such as Boston Ferns or Crotons are known to cleanse toxic elements and irritants such as carbon monoxide, ammonia, formaldehyde, pollen, bacteria, and mold. Fill your home with natural beauty and fresh oxygen!
