DIY // Mini Flower arrangement for a hot summer

As you know I love flowers, but one thing I don’t like is that flowers doesn’t last that long when it’s very hot outside. What I do then is make little flower arrangements with floral foam and strong, long lasting flowers. The flowers I used in this arrangement are chrysanthemums. You can use all kind of chrysanthemums, I used the Santini. This is a fresh looking, compact flower. 

Soak the foam in a bucket with water, but don’t push it underwater. Then fill your flower pots with wet floral foam. Make sure it sticks out a little bit above the edge.

Then you start to fill the outer ring with flowers. Please use a sharp knife to cut your flowers…..the flowers will love you for that 😀 

When the outer ring is filled you start to fill the middle up. I always like it when it’s a little bit of a mini hill…..not a flat polder field as we have here in Holland ;D. Make the stems a little longer then you did with the outer ring. 

Your Done!!! 

I added a little decoration to give it a summer vibe. 

Give your arrangement a little bit of water twice a week. 

Enjoy your little creation!

Love, Elisabeth
