Last summer, Barbie Hull and I worked on a fun project to show gardeners how they can design floral arrangements with flowers from their own garden. Our goal was to highlight individual flower types that work well for arranging, the process of creating a design, and the finished arrangements. This first example was taken at my parents’ house in August. (Hi, Mom and Dad!)
We also wanted to show how a single arrangement looks in different settings around the house and in different types of light. The arrangement above on an outdoor table is shown again indoors on a buffet, below.
This finished arrangement contained: Ninebark, Roses, Astilbe, Sedum, Clematis, Lobelia, and Heuchera.
Big thanks to Barbie Hull! Be sure to check out more of her fabulous work at her website. Look for more tips on designing with flowers from your garden in upcoming posts.
Thanks again to Mom and Dad for letting us use their beautiful garden!!
