Floral Arrangements – Make Your House Feel Like a Home


Whether its autumn, winter, spring or summer, a floral arrangement can really transform your house into a home. Spring/Summer 2014 has so far seen bursts of bright yellow, organic greens, nautical blues and luxurious purples; why not try and bring these colours into your home with these creative centrepieces that have caught my eye:

The Seashell

I can’t rave about Martha Stewart’s DIY Seashell Flower Arrangement enough. Coastal trends have always been a popular theme in home decor, and this arrangement definitely puts a unique twist on a centrepiece! You can easily create this at home by following Martha Stewart’s step-by-step tutorial, bringing a little bit of the seaside to the city.


The Watering Can

If you’re a lover of all things countryside, this next arrangement is perfect for you. If you don’t have a watering can, you can pick one up for next to nothing from your local garden store, or why not try your local flea market or carboot sale for that vintage look. Maria Mack from Ruffled Blog showcases her perfect take on the quirky watering can centrepiece in this Old-World Wedding inspiration shoot.


The Glass Bottle

Style Me Pretty Blog shows how saving a few glass bottles this summer can create an eclectic flower display. Although these centrepieces were created for a wedding, they are perfect for filling an empty shelf or windowsill. Collect bottles of different shapes and sizes for a more relaxed feel and style with some ribbon or scraps of material for an extra personal touch.

The Flower Bag

Did you ever think a paper bag could be a centrepiece? Well, The Bouqs did, proving this simple sustainable DIY comes with a hefty dose of rustic charm. Simply arrange flowers in a glass jar or a water-filled plastic sandwich bag, place in a flat-bottomed paper bag and tie with ribbon or string. You could even try this idea with artificial flowers for a year-round display.

Retro Tins

Collectable retro tins are a great idea for a vintage-inspired centrepiece. This Oyster tin floral centrepiece I found on Oncewed blog is the perfect example of creating a summery centrepiece filled with vibrant flowers for a seaside feel. Pick up old tins at a flea market or scour your local supermarket for interesting designs.
