How to | Summer Flower Arrangement
Typically Sunday's are my day of choice when it comes to picking up flowers for the apartment... But every now and then, I need a mid-week pick me up, which is exactly what happened last Thursday. I can't exactly say which flowers it was that pulled me into to the deli that day, but somehow I walked out with 4 different bundles and a HUGE smile on my face. It's wonderful how happy something as simple as flowers can make you.
For under $40, I picked up two different types of hydrangeas, dahlias, and sunflowers - and I must say, I'm pretty happy with the end result. And now, one week later they are still going strong - with the exception of the white hydrangea, which didn't make it past yesterdays humidity.
When it comes to creating your own summer flower arrangement, don't be afraid to mix flowers you never would have thought went together. I like to play around with whats available at the store before purchasing - holding them together, imagining what they may look like. You can do the same thing too! Also, I came across this awesome article, about extending the life of cut flowers - highly recommended.
