How To Make A Mixed Flower Arrangement Perfect For The New Year will add smiles to friends and family.
As my year came to an end, I welcomed the new with open arms. What better way to welcome the New Year with flowers. For me, flowers are a gift that keeps on giving. They create memories that can last forever.
Nothing like fresh and colorful florals in the entryway to brighten up the home. Here is a quick tutorial on how to mix flowers arrangement and place them in 4 different locations in the house. The flowers I used are lavender roses, purple and white traditional daisies, purple statice, and lush green. The arrangement I used as inspirations was this gorgeous arrangement by Vera Wang. The bouquet has colors that were the perfect juxtaposition to my entryway.
- 4 stems of lavender or pinks roses
- 4 purple daisies
- 12 white daisies
- 4 purple statice.
- 5 lush green
- Glass vase
Preparing The Flowers:
Separate each of the flowers so that they all are cut the same length. I started with the white & purple daisies, roses, and purple statice. It’s that simple to create mixed flowers. Any combination of flowers is always pretty.
Now they are ready to place all around the house. I choose 4 different locations in the house that I felt would make people smile when they saw them.
On the Piano
My husband and daughter love to play the piano during the holidays. So music is a big part of our lives. I’m adding flowers on the piano to inspire more of those tunes all year round.
In the Kitchen
The kitchen is the best location for people to gather and what better place than adding flowers to put a smile on people’s faces.
I love roses. The main colors in my home are white, beige and green, so this amazing lavender color shines amidst those colors. Nothing beats the aroma of fresh roses when you walk into a home. I think flowers have healing powers and it’s great to have them around to relax after the hectic holiday. So placing these arrangements in the foyer entryway is the ideal location.
On a bookshelf
Vera Wang is an amazing designer. Her choice of colors inspired me to add them to my bookshelf to add some pop of color. Look beyond ways to get inspired and decorate with flowers in your home and change it up. Placing your arrangements in different areas is inspiring and fun!
I hope my mixed arrangement inspired you to make one for the New Year. For more flower arrangements by myself. Check out How to make simple centerpieces for my son’s rehearsal dinner.
