Garden floral arrangement
You guys, this arrangement was so much fun to create! I’m normally drawn to short and small arrangements – I like my blooms close together and not pointy and flared, does that even make sense?
The garden was showing signs of dying out and the wind had blown over all the zinnias – so I decided to do one last hurrah of an arrangement using our remaining garden bounty.
The one item not from the garden is dill weed – I wanted a light and airy filler for the arrangement and I love the smell of dill. To make this 100% free I could have cut some Queen Anne’s Lace from the field behind us, but I went with dill.
This garden arrangement has zinnias, beet leaves, carrots and their tops, and dill weed. I love the way the carrots look through the glass vase and how grand the entire arrangement turned out.
I was so inspired after creating this fun and unique arrangement that I created a guide with 10 inspirational ways to use produce in your arrangements. If you have already subscribed to my blog, you will get this nifty guide in your email soon. And if you subscribe now, you will also get the guide.
Floral arrangements are such an easy way to brighten someone’s day, or celebrate, and even to just enjoy around the house. I enjoyed showing my girls how to use our garden produce in a new way – they thought it was pretty cool and I really hope you’re also inspired to look at produce or your garden in a new way – to fully make the most of the all the parts (Unless you need them for compost! That’s important too.)
I hope you’ll subscribe to my blog if you haven’t already. Thanks for stopping by and staying a while. If you have time to show some love, please add your ‘likes’ and ‘hearts’ to my social media posts. Happy arranging!
