DIY Flower Arranging

Sharing is caring!

I wanted to share an easy tutorial about flower arranging today. The arrangement was for tea time. I remember I had the perfect vessel since I was setting up to serve tea at church, and my friend’s grandson decided to help with the teapot and broke the lid.

My friend wanted to discard the teapot since the lid was broken, but I saw it as a perfect vessel for a floral arrangement, especially tea time. 

Making tea time special with pretty floral arrangements, lovely teacups, a touch of whimsy, and of course, tea. Sharing tea in the afternoon is the perfect time to unwind and reconnect with family and friends.

How to Arrange Flowers

I purchased three floral types from Publix (local grocery store) roses, baby’s breath, and greenery; despite the small amount of floral used, the teapot centerpiece made a pretty arrangement.

Elements for floral arranging


Steps to a beautiful floral arrangement:

  1. Using scissors, cut open all the floral and greenery warping.
  2. Then remove outer petals from roses.
  3. Also, remove all the leaves from roses.
  4. Tape the top of your vessel.
  5. Using floral snips, cut the roses to the same height (about 2 to 3 inches taller than the vessel). Start by cutting just one rose, then check how it looks with a 3″ taller rose placed in the center. Adjust height if necessary.
  6. Once all the roses are cut to the same length, start placing them in the vessel between the tape grid, placing them crossing back and forth, and creating a grid inside the vessel. This way, they will support the top roses, baby’s breath, and greenery.
  7. Then I added the eucalyptus. There were only three eucalypti, so I had to move them around a little to see what I liked best.
  8. Next, start cutting the baby’s breath one piece at a time and filling in around the roses.
  9. Add water
