Floral Arrangement DIY: A Mother's Day Project

Just in case you didn't already know, Mother's Day is this coming Sunday. This year I decided to make my own Mom a gift, as well as my Mother-in-Law, and I thought I'd share with you exactly what it is at the risk that one of these fantastic women might see it.

What I used:

A Glass Vase
Wet Floral Foam - cut to size and soak

It seems simple enough, right?

Wrong, but here are some tips to get you through it:

Tip 1: Pay attention to your floral composition. I recommend starting with the largest flower and then adding all of the other flowers around it, going back and forth between small and large flowers.

Tip 2: Sit down while doing it so that you can see your composition from the sides and the top. I didn't pay too much attention to the side for the first one I made when I started it. I also placed the sponge on a plate so I could rotate it.

Tip 3: Know how big the mouth of the vase is and if your arrangement will fit through it when you're done, or if you're going to have to shove it all I did.

Tip 4: Have fun! I loved making these floral arrangements for our Mothers, and, while I know that I will never be a florist any time soon, I know that practice makes perfect and they're going to love them.

Happy Mother's Day!
