Hey you! It’s Fotini here from Farmhouse Chic Blog! I have the great pleasure of hanging out with you here today! Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and whether you’re hosting dinner or going to families house, I wanted to share with you the simple way of how to create an elegant arrangement! It’s a Thanksgiving day must-have! Your guests will be awe-struck when they see your gorgeous creation!
How to Create an Elegant Arrangement:
To begin, you will want to pick up a wet foam block from the craft store. While you’re there pick up a gorgeous decorative bowl or use one you already have at home! Head to your local grocer and head to the floral section. I frequent the floral section at my local grocery! On this particular shopping trip, I lucked out because they were marking down all their hypericum berries and babies breath. I grabbed a couple bunches of those, as well as, two bunches of mixed greens (aka floral fillers).
I already had the perfect mercury glass bowl that I was using for this arrangement! First things first, you’re going to want to soak your wet foam in water until it’s fully saturated. Cut it if necessary to fit your bowl and set it inside. Grab your mixed greens and begin pushing them into your foam. I start in the middle and work out to the sides. I find it best to mirror each side for consistency. Play around with your design. At this point, I opted not to use the baby breath and only the mixed greens and hypericum berries. My favorite part of this piece is the silver dollar eucalyptus! It completely makes this entire centerpiece! I simply added it to the sides, where it appears to drape over the bowl! Work until the entire foam block is covered and you’re happy with the design. At this point, you could even add in some fresh fruit like grapes, pears, or apples. I opted for beautiful red anjou pears on the table instead. That’s it! You’re all done!! Saturate your foam block daily in water for longevity of your arrangement and enjoy!
Now tell me that wouldn’t be the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving tablescape? OR how lovely would it be to give to the hostess on Thanksgiving? I just love it and I hope you do too!!
