The masking tape is key to this ease of this arrangement! Cut long strips of masking tape and then use them to create a grid across the top of your bowl. The grid will help provide structure and shape for your arrangement. Optionally, cut a piece of floral foam and place it in the bottom of the bowl to insert your flowers into as you go.

Then start cutting your flower stems and arranging them within the grid. You may need to play around a bit with your arrangement as you go, but that’s the fun of it!  If you have stems that need a bit more support, you can clip a bamboo skewer and attach it to the stem with floral wire or floral tape. For this arrangement, a bed of tulips and alstroemeria were formed around the base and then a cluster the peonies in the centre.

Wow, super easy and pretty. Make sure to keep all leaves and petals above the water line to keep your flowers blooming for longer.

Hope you’re inspired to try some DIY arranging!
