Every year I look forward to creating my Easter dinner table. A big part of my excitement is the fun flower arrangements I get to make. Don’t get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving and Christmas but I feel kinda locked into a certain look and feel during those holidays.
With Easter and Springtime in general, I find that I get to create with the colors and the flowers that I personally like. I’m going to take you through how I think about flowers, how I choose them, what I put together and a tiny bit of how too.
This is literally what my table looks like when I get back from the Los Angeles Flower Mart. I like to work on a large piece of burlap or large plastic sheets (large plastic trash can liners cut apart work great too). After you are done, you just roll it up and toss it in the trash (being sure to separate the plastic and the flowers – recycling is a wonderful thing).
How I approach flowers is fairly simple, I like to choose a few neutral base fillers, a neutral base feature flower, a filler color flower and then one or two ‘stars of the show’ flowers.
You’ll see above that I have the filler flowers of white and green and then pops of color both in the purple filler and the bright pink flowers.
I choose to just do it by hand – it allows for more creative control. I just build flower upon flower, seeing what looks good next to the other .
