Thursday’s Theme: Fall Flower & Plant Arrangement Ideas

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Only one day stands between us and the official first day of Autumn. So today we are sharing some fall flower and plant arrangement ideas that you can DIY quickly, and in most cases, with items around and outside your home.

DIY Pumpkin Vase | A Pumpkin & A Princess

One of the best vessels for holding plants and flowers this time of year is of course, the pumpkin. For an almost-perfectly cohesive look, use craft pumpkins in place of real pumpkins. Or, carve the top of a real pumpkin and clean it out like you would if you were creating a jack-o-lantern. Place flowers and greenery inside – they will look their best if their stems are trimmed relatively short. You could also place a candle inside and surround it with a mini wreath or strand of bittersweets and leaves.

Fall Mason Jar Vases | Anything & Everything: A DIY Blog

Mason jars are consistent stars of DIY projects, and especially when they are painted with autumn colors and filled with flowers, it’s easy to see why. But if you use Mason jars for canning or food storage and don’t have any to spare, painted coffee tins and similar containers offer just as much charm. Even empty wine bottles can be painted and used for single blooms along a table or mantel.

Fall and Halloween DIY Vases

Of course, what we hope you gain from this this post is how “charming” doesn’t have to mean “complicated.” And fall typically offers items right outside your door. Collect pinecones, colorful leaves, twigs and other natural elements, throw them in a glass vase and voila! Instant seasonal style. A ribbon can help spruce up the look, and potpourri will add even more freshness to your indoor living spaces.

Peony Bouquet

April showers bring May flowers, but if you are like us, you are not waiting until then to start decorating with flower arrangements. This week we are spotlighting five florals (four flowers, one grass stem), all of which you can find on our website.

Also, be sure to check out our tips on flower arranging here, and tell us how you are decorating with flowers this spring.

Peony Bouquet:

Pale pink softens green leaves while maintaining a beautifully fresh appearance alone in a vase or among other flowers.

Parrot Tulips and GrassParrot Tulip Floral Stems and Artificial Grass Floral Filler:

These tulip stems are quite tall, taking full attention of any space they are in with whimsical charm. Both color options work in a variety of arrangements.

We have added the artificial grass in the image to the left to show how complementing it is to long stems, although it stands just as beautifully on its own.

Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus

Ranunculus Faux Floral Stems and Cherry Blossom Floral Bunch:

While the genus “Ranunculus” includes hundreds of species, we make it simple by offering just one of them. The rounded shape sets these blooms apart from others, adding contrast to a bouquet or making a beautiful statement individually. Both color options are perfect for spring or Easter decorating, too.

The cherry blossoms of Washington D.C. are infamously watched at the beginning of spring so the public can know when the best time to view their elegance is. You can add clusters of these delicate flowers to your home without cutting your actual cherry tree with bunches from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop – in pink, white or both!

(( Also, don’t forget about our Annual Spring Sale going on now, with free shipping on curtains, special savings on wall art, pillows, these flowers & more! ))

This pale pink floral bunch can be found on pages 26 and 68 of our Spring 2017 catalog.

Ranunculus Stem

Flip to page 71 of our Spring 2017 catalog, and you will see a flower arrangement of white Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus. The fresh look of this arrangement is perfect for a bedroom or a welcoming entry. Also available in pink, the web exclusive Ranunculus also make beautiful additions to a bouquet of Calla Lilies. The combination of whimsical shapes (including the shape of the vase) enhances the flair and style of these blooms. For an even more lush look in both quantity and color, multiple Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus do the trick.
