how to create floral arrangements.

if you came to my front door right now, I would not let you in. I’d be terribly rude and refuse to welcome you. nothing personal. but besides the husband + our two fur children, not a soul is allowed in. (I should probably close the blinds). we’re moving into our new home in just weeks. so to prepare, we are sorting through each + every belonging under our roof. we’re saying yes, donate, or sell. down to the two bobby pins I found under the couch. I am right now sitting among nine rubbermaid tubs. all demanding to be sorted through. you can’t take more than two steps forward without landing on a miscellaneous object. it gets worse before it gets better, right? (let’s just hope we don’t lose the cat in the packing process).

being the “calm + happy when the house is clean + organized” kind of gal, I’m losing my sh*t. to bring some life + fun to the house and to celebrate the arrival of spring, I made a few floral arrangements for our chaos.

for the vases: purchase two plain cylinder glasses vases at the dollar store. tape off the bottom section. use a bit of mod podge + sprinkle with gold glitter. let dry. for the flower arrangements: once the vases are dry, fill with water. tape off a grid on the top of the vases using clear scotch tape. grab your fresh flowers. (I always pick up my fresh bouquets at trader joe’s. only $3.99!). trim the stems to desired height + arrange in the vase. keep one in the kitchen + one on your nightstand, or that’s where you can find mine.

do you keep fresh flowers at home? do you have a favorite vase?

    Too funny – I bought some tulips yesterday to feel better about the disaster that I call “home”. πŸ™‚ I could use some advice on how you’re organizing with your move. We are moving this summer and I don’t have a clue where to start! It was much easier when all I had was a bed, dresser & closet full of clothes!

      I love it – we’re in the same boat. are your flowers helping? mine are slightly lost in the madness. we’re trying to donate & sell as much as possible. so much stuff we do not need or use. I’ll write A LOT about our moving shenanigans. that is so exciting! it’s always fun to get into a new space + make it your own. the getting your stuff there is ALWAYS the issue. haha!
