This is an updated post on fall floating gardens, Floating Beauties, with spring arrangements.
Visiting Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, PA, I have always been entranced with their wonderful floating arrangements made out of fresh seasonal materials displayed in a generous proportioned bowl. Easy to put together, even for the flower arranging challenged, there are no mechanics involved, just an eye for what goes together.
After flower arranging you often have bits and pieces left over which you hate to throw away. An opportunity to use these pieces in a stunning arrangement is easy to do with a large waterproof bowl. Lasting four or five days, these floating beauties can be changed out for what is perfect at the moment.
- Pick out the perfect wide bowl; fill 3/4 up with fresh water
- Browse your garden, picking up a variety of foliage, berries, and flowers-or just use left over flowers from arranging
- Start arranging your foliage as the backdrop. Add your larger statement flowers at the end.
A perfect centerpiece for a party or for you alone to enjoy, this type of arrangement takes minutes to make, for you to enjoy for at least a week.
