Floral Styling - A Simple Flower Arrangement - # 7 - Ranunculus



Two big bunches of pink Ranunculus
Two stems of waxflowers
A square glass vase
A vintage wooden container
A few small new and vintage green glass vases 


Condition the flowers by stripping off any lower leaves that would end up below the water line. 

Cut the stems at an angle and place in a clean container of water.

Leave in a cool place over night or at least for a few hours before making the final arrangement.


I wanted to make an open and loose arrangement with the Ranunculus and adding in just a few stems of waxflowers.

Fill the inner glass vase with water and place inside the larger wooden container. Loosely arrange the Ranunculus stems - leave the stems as long as possible so that they lean over the sides of the wooden container. 

Use as many of the unopened buds as possible to give the arrangement some texture and at the end cut down the waxflowers and add randomly to the arrangement.

A particularly beautiful flower gets its very own little special vase.
    


Have a Beautiful Floral Day!

See you soon!

xoxo Ingrid
