It may be winter outside, but you can still enjoy the beauty and fragrance of fresh flowers indoors. This bouquet, designed by Janice Morrow, is made up from blooms and greens that are available even in the coldest months of the year. Our all-white selection reflects the snowy weather that some people dream about (and others dream about being over!), but you can bring in whatever colors keep you happy and cheerful during the cold season.
What You’ll Need:
- Ironstone urn or other container
- Wet floral foam
- Clippers or scissors
- Flowers: (As shown from left to right) Wax flowers, Gerber daisies, chamomile, stock, feather eucalyptus, mini carnations, spider mums, silver dollar eucalyptus, hydrangea (not shown), amaranth (not shown)
What You’ll Do:
- Clean your urn and cut the floral foam to fit inside. Add water, about 2/3rds full.
- Begin by inserting long pieces of eucalyptus into the foam, so they drape down over the edge of the urn.
- Add several stems of hydrangea to fill in the middle area.
- Start adding your large focus flowers (daisies and mums), spacing them randomly around the arrangement. Cut the stems long, to give the arrangement plenty of height and fullness.
- Fill spaces with the smaller flowers and additional greens, until you reach the desired fullness.
- As a signature touch, Janice adds a spring of amaranth trailing over the side of the urn.
This is a casual arrangement, so don’t worry about symmetry or other formal design structures. The secret to beautiful floral displays, according to Janice, is to be fearless. Follow your instincts, and don’t be afraid to add more!
