Hallmark has teamed up with FTD to create beautiful holiday arrangements as gifts that help us gather for all of life’s special moments. Today we’re sharing how to achieve the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece with our Bounty of Blessings Bouquet. Read on for tips and tricks from Hallmark’s in-house stylists!
Flowers are a beautiful way to bring a little bit of outdoor charm to an indoor setting. But ever wondered how to arrange those beauties to bring out their best? By following only a couple of tips of the trade, your tabletop arrangements will not only wow your guests, they’ll be a lovely reminder to savor the beauty and blessings of the season.
Consider cutting stems to different lengths to add interest and dimension to your arrangement. For example, The Bounty of Blessings Bouquet comes with several orange roses. Cut each to a different height for visual interest.
Begin by arranging the taller flowers in the center of the vase and work outward to the shorter cut stems. This creates a fuller and more striking bouquet. Cluster like flowers together for a more sophisticated look.
TIPS FOR EXTENDING THE LIFE OF YOUR ARRANGEMENT
What to do with thriving blooms once others begin to wither? Highlight small bunches in simple bud vases or small-necked jars. This gives each bloom a chance to shine, often becoming sculptural showpieces for everyday spaces. Arrange them on a windowsill or cluster them on a tray in the middle of your coffee table to extend the life of these beautiful blooms.
