I am enchanted by simple floral arrangements that highlight the beauty, intricacy and detail of individual blossoms. From my very first blog post entitled It’s all about the arrangement (psst….even with last week’s roses)until now, I have advocated for using a few blossoms to create inexpensive and stunning floral arrangements.
When there are many blossoms in an arrangement, very often the individual detail of each flower is lost. It’s hard to tell the trees from the forest, or rather the flowers from the arrangement. In an arrangement where a few blossoms rule, it is important to choose full-bodied blossoms like open roses, gerber daisies or large chrysanthemums.
Here I simply floated gerber daisy blossoms cut right below the blossom in square glass bowls. For a little extra pizzazz, I encircled each blossom with tall leaves that I snipped from my lily bushes.
