I recently put together a floral arrangement, well two as an introduction into fall. When I went looking for flowers, Halloween, especially was on my mind. I was actually looking for any dahlias, or even dark tulips but there was only summer colors avail. As a general rule of thumb, I stay away from Roses, just because roses can over or underwhelm an arrangement. Mums are my go to, because they do well, with limited sun, and are fully displayed.
PS. I think these are one of my favorite arrangements.
Have I told ya I be out here putting together floral arrangements? Well Have a seat, and let me put yall up on game. I can’t remember with what day or arrangement it started with. Lets just say Valentines day. I remember the roses I put together but I cant remember much else. Luckily for you, and me if I’m being honest, I took photos! Shout Out to Trader Joe’s, If you go early in the day, there’s usually a nice selection of random flowers they put together. Depending on what flowers are talking to me, I spend no more than 15$, but I don’t buy flowers every week. When my current bouquet is dead, and I mean dead dead, then I prepare to buy a new set.
I brought tulips, to celebrate the first days of Spring, but even with a delay getting them cut and into water, they last such a long time, a few weeks. And I captured them in the dying process, up until the very last day, they were such beauties. Theres just something about fresh flowers that make you a bit happier with the day.
