I had a special order to make a fall arrangement for a dining room table, so I thought I would share it with you and how I made it! First you need to decide what colors you want to have and the container you want to make it in. I didn't get any pictures of the container with the florist foam in it but you fill up the container so they fit tightly into your container. If you are afraid that the foam will show, you add some moss to the top of the foam. Sometimes if your arrangement is really full you won't need any, but I usually put some on the top of the foam just in case. Then decide how tall you would like it. I decided I wanted to have a topiary like effect in the middle,( I secured the three hydrangea's with raffia in the middle) and then I decided to leave the rest quite low to the container. I decided to do this so if you leave the arrangement on the table while eating you can still talk to the person across from you.
I then started filling in the bottom with berries, flowers, fruits and whatever fall you want to put in there!
Here it is finished and as full as I wanted it to be, (you just kind of know when there is enough or where you need more by moving the arrangement around and getting a good view from all sides.)
Here it is on the dining room table.
The other side.
It kind of looks like fall, don't you think?
Here is a close up of the metal container, (I fell in love with it!)
By the way, the person I made it for loved it! Good, I took some pictures before it went from my table to hers!
