Floral Arranging 101: Wild English Garden Arrangement.

The second homework assignment from the Floral Arranging 101 course I'm taking was to create a wild english garden arrangement. This assignment was a lot more difficult than I anticipated. Who knew so much work went in to something you were trying to make look completely effortless?

I used roses and peonies from my garden and bought the rest of the flowers and greenery from a local flower shop.

I had a rough start putting this arrangement together. After getting frustrated with how it was turning out I threw in the towel for the night and started over in the morning. With a fresh set of eyes, I took everything a part and ended up being so much happier with the end result.

I have two assignments left to squeeze in before the end of the week but already feel that the class has been totally worth the investment. I've learned so much and Chelsea has been very encouraging along the way. Up next: A head wreath and a bridal bouquet + boutonniere! Wish me luck!

  2. I've always had the thought of learning flower arranging in the back of my mind. You've made it look doable - your arrangements are truly beautiful! Maybe one of these years I'll give it a try.

  4. I haven't checked your blog for a while; I hopped over from Jamie Leavit's this morning, and I'm so glad I did. This flower arrangement is gorgeous. I've got a busy day ahead of me, and just looking at the pictures helped to slow my mind down a bit so I can enjoy the morning.

  6. Flower arranging is a passion that I have ever since I got my senses. However, I wasn’t given an opportunity to study about this stuff further because I was too busy with my graduate school. I only got bit by bit learning through posts online just like yours. Thank you for the knowledge you impart.

  8. I love the bit of clematis vine trailing out...no surprise to me that you would shine at floral design as well! Beautiful work. Tami
