Fresh flower arrangement idea

If you want to arrange a fresh flower bouquet in a fun and unique way, you should try creating your very own fan-shaped display. All you need is a fan vase and a few basic supplies. These arrangements are especially eye-catching and they can be enjoyed in various areas of your home. Whether you want to make it for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, you can do so in a matter of minutes.

What you need

  • A fan vase
  • Fresh flower selection
  • Foliage to suit your flowers
  • Clean water and floral preservative

Steps to follow:

  • To begin creating this fresh flower arrangement, you need to prepare your vase. Make sure that it is clean before adding fresh water and flower food.
  • Next, you need to arrange some foliage. Yes, unlike other decorating styles, these vases require the addition of greenery first. This is because it will create a backdrop for your flowers
  • Follow the shape of the vase and trim each stem according to the height of that part of the vase.
  • Arrange the foliage in such a way that the leaves are symmetrical. Each hole in the vase needs to have a stem of greenery.
  • Next, you need to add your flowers.
  • Prepare each flower by removing the leaves and trimming the stems in the same way as you did your foliage.
  • Shorter flowers can be placed in the front while taller stems can be placed in the back. You want to create a cascading effect.
  • Depending on the size of each hole, you might be able to add several rows of flowers.
  • Once you are done, inspect your arrangement to make sure that there are no gaps in between. You can add some tiny filler flowers if you like.

These vases are excellent for beginners because they hold each stem in place perfectly. Not only can you use it to create a fresh flower display, but also with artificial or dried flowers. In these cases, you will not need to add water and you can simply add your foliage and blooms. Another good tip to remember is to keep your design simple. There is no need to overcomplicate things with too many types of flowers. You also want to avoid crushing the stems by adding too many.
