DIY floral centerpiece from our own backyard

DIY flower arranging is what we are all about and after 13 years of playing with flowers as a non-professional I needed to try something different.  Today I went into our yard at work and decided to use nature as my inspiration.  Everything in this arrangement was cut from a tree, weed or bush right in our yard and I think the results are amazing.

What do you think?

I initially inspired by the pine cone but all of these are used in the design

For this design I used one of our galvanized small buckets and a corresponding 6 inch Easy Arranger.  I like how the natural look of the metal works with the rustic natural of the cuttings.  

Next thing was to just add the cuttings.  I took a lot of the lower leave off to expose the stem before putting them in the Easy Arranger.

I just love how the finished look turned out.  When I showed everyone here at andcasa.com and Annabelle Noel Designs the comment was, "That would be beautiful as a wedding centerpiece."  So I quickly added our galvanized pic and chalkboard mini-sign/coaster and wrote on it with our white chalk ink marker.

Whether for a wedding or just everyday, I think the look is perfect.  Subtle, soft pinks, purples and green are great colors for Spring or Fall and work well with the metals.

I love this look so much for a DIY wedding centerpiece, I added a kit to our website you can pick up for a short time.  For $30 you get 3 buckets, 3 6 inch Easy Arrangers, 3 Chalkboard mini-signs, 3 picks and one chalk ink marker plus free shipping. CLICK HERE to check it out.

Or maybe I wasn't in the right place at the [...]

Early holiday shopping...yes or no?

You won't believe this but I heard my first "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" last week.  It was 95 degrees in Louisiana and didn't look a damn thing like Christmas but there I was selling at a holiday market.  We sold a ton of Scribbles chalkboard placemats, Nativity Coloring Sticker rolls and [...]
