New 💓 heart touching Flower Arrangement/ simple and Beautiful Flower Arrangement
The Simplest and Most Stunning Flower Arrangements
1. Start with Variety
For a more interesting and colorful bouquet, select some flowers that have already bloomed and others that are just budding.
2. Prep Smart
Clear a table or counter and group your flowers in loose piles so you can quickly pick up separate stems. Fill a vase two-thirds full with cool water.
3. Cut Right
Using sharp scissors, trim stems as you go to avoid wilting (cut at a 45-degree angle so they get more water). To prevent mold, strip leaves that will sit in the water.

4. Go in Order
Add greenery to the vase first to create a base for your arrangement; allow some to drape over the sides. Layer in larger blossoms before filling in with smaller buds.
5. Forget Perfect Symmetry
Aim for off-center harmony instead: Pair two of your bigger flowers on one side of the vase and add a single blossom on the opposite side. Repeat as needed.
6. Zoom Out
Step back and look at your bouquet. Do you like the shape? The color? Balance any overly green patches with sparser flowers or fill in holes with greenery.
TIME: 25 minutes
Small white cup or vase
Sunflowers(clockwise from top left)
Queen Anne’s lace
1. Use the floral shears to trim the bottom of a few geranium stems. Cluster them at the base of the vase, allowing the leaves to drape over the sides.
3. Trim about two or three sprigs of mint and tuck them in on different sides of the arrangement, filling empty areas between the geranium leaves.
4. Insert about three or four trimmed stems of Queen Anne’s lace at the far edges of the vase, varying the height and choosing pieces that have already bloomed, as well as ones that are just budding.
5. Select seven or eight sunflowers and trim to different heights, keeping some the same length as the Queen Anne’s lace and the others a bit taller. Group a few on one side of the vase, and turn the faces of the flowers in slightly different directions for a less formal feel. Place one opposite the group to create a low, oval shape. If the flower heads are too heavy to stand on their own, lean them against the hardy mint sprigs for support.
6. Cut a small bunch of chamomile and place just off center. Add some sparser pieces to break up overly green patches.
7. Select a handful of wispy nigella and cut them just longer than the Queen Anne’s lace, adding to fill in any last gaps and complete the shape.
1. Try a footed, opaque vessel for an interesting bouquet silhouette. Bonus: Stems won't distract.
2. To create whimsy, play with scale, like these small chamomile blossoms and larger sunflowers.
3. Position hardy greenery (here, mint sprigs) to hold up heavy flower heads.
TIME: 25 minutes

1. Beginning with the geranium leaves, trim a few stems short enough that the leaves sit just at the brim of the vase. Loosely arrange them around the edges.
2. Choose several blossoms of Queen Anne’s lace. Vary the heights (trim the stems accordingly) and add to the arrangement, allowing longer pieces to drape over the sides of the vase.
3. Trim about four large peony stems and add to the vase. Create balance by pairing blooms of varying heights on one side of the vase, and adding a single blossom or two on the opposite side.
4. Cut two or three garden roses and add to the bouquet, filling in any larger gaps.
5. Choose a few columbine blossoms and, matching the height with the tallest flowers in the bouquet, trim. Add in any overly green spots.
6. For a finishing touch, insert a couple of trimmed sprigs of maidenhair fern along the bottom lip of the vase plus two or three foxglove stalks 1" higher than the tallest flowers. Position these on opposite sides of the arrangement.
1. Use a large pitcher or vase with a wide opening to neatly corral a large bunch of stems.
2. Stick to three colors—we used pink, white and green—to let big blooms stand out.
3. Remember the finishing touches: Tuck in taller stalks like foxglove, and wispy clippings like Queen Anne's lace.

Queen Anne’s lace

1. Choose a couple of geranium stems and, using the floral shears, trim them short enough to hang over the front of the jar. Trim another two or three stems slightly taller and arrange toward the back of the jar.
2. Cut a handful of chamomile a couple of inches taller than the lip of the jar and cluster them toward the center. Trim two or three wispier shoots about 3" taller and arrange them at opposite sides.
3. Select two sprigs of mint and snip to the same height as the shortest chamomile bunches. Add to the jar so the center of the arrangement feels full.
4. Choose a combination of bloomed Queen Anne’s lace and just-budding pieces, and trim them at varying heights. Insert the shorter pieces near the chamomile blossoms. Place the taller blooms on opposite sides of the jar, leaving an airy space between them.
5. Grab three or four oregano stalks and cut them to the height of the tallest flowers. Use them to fill any open gaps in the bouquet.
6. Snip a couple of chamomile branches slightly higher than the tallest Queen Anne’s lace and nestle at the back of the jar.
Longevity Tip: Change the water in the vase daily and give stems a small trim every few days to keep bacteria at bay.
