By September 17, 2015 No Comments

Let’s be honest… Florals are our favorite!!!
We always love a good floral arrangement and a Fall one to boot!!  Us Beijos girls often turn to Meagan of MV Florals for our floral needs, whether it’s a wedding, bridal shower, photo shoot, or even for our own kiddo’s birthdays.  She is such a talent and also, such a sweetheart.  She created this lovely Fall floral arrangement for us and shared her talented ways with a super easy DIY that any of us can do…

Take a peak and get ready for Fall with this step by step guide and beautiful photos by Alison Bernier.

Supplies Needed:

Decorative Container

Clippers or Knife to cut Flowers

Floral Foam (Meagan used Oasis brand)

Flowers and Greenery for Arrangement

After you soak your piece of floral foam, cut it to size and place inside your decorative container.  The foam should be a bit higher than the container.  Trim corners to make it easier to insert flower stems.

Bay Laurel, Seeded Eucalyptus, Thryptomine, Ranunculus, Amaranthus, Dahlias, Rudbeckia, Cockscomb, Berries, Scabiosca, Craspedia Balls, and Grevelia.

 Create the shape you want for your arrangement by placing your line flowers (for this arrangement I used the bay laurel, grevelia, and white thryptomine) Make sure you give each stem a fresh clean cut before inserting into the foam.  The stems of each flower should reach water level and touch or be close to the bottom of the container.
