SPRING is finally here and it is in full BLOOM in southern Cali! You could say I am one happy lady 🙂 Going to my local farmers market was first on the agenda this past weekend. I LOVE flowers… like my obsession is on another level, hehe. They are SO purrrrdy and I love having them around the house. Let’s be honest, they just make a room more beautiful! My girlfriend, Gaby, came over to play with me and we had a lovely afternoon of building blooms. Easter is coming up this weekend and these flowers would be the perfect addition to your brunch table!
I always go for pink-toned flowers but what says happy more than sunflowers?! This Kansas girl has a soft spot for these yellow blooms. I found some sunflowers that were pretty much the size of my head so ya, they were definitely going home with me. I decided on a bright color palette of pinks and yellows, also perfect for Easter. Once I got home from the farmers market, the building began. First up I taped my vase in a square grid (see image above). This is an easy lil’ trick so you flowers stay in place. You can also use foam (see my Valentine’s Day blooms) but taping is a great alternative. I started by picking a few of the larger blooms, also what I call the “statement pieces”, as my main focal points of the arrangement. Next up I filled in with smaller flowers, mixing up the colors. I build as I go, move things around until I’m happy with the shape and last but not least, have FUN with it!
Happy Spring BLOOM building! Mauh!
