Pin Away Wednesdays: Flower Arrangements, Bouquets, and Gatherings


Hello friends and welcome back to my Pin Away Wednesday series!  Summer is a great time to create stunning cut flower arrangements and to enjoy the fresh summer blooms from the garden or market. Today I am sharing highlights from my Flower Arrangements, Bouquets, and Gatherings for inspiration. If you are a flower lover, get ready to pin away!

When designing a flower arrangement, choose an interesting container and coordinate the colors. Vintage jars, cans, baskets and bottles with colorful labels are perfect for creating eye catching arrangements.

Display large arrangments in stunning vessels, pots, or urns. These types of arrangements look beautiful in foyers or as a dining room centerpiece.

When planning my gardens I try to think ahead of what flowers will still be in bloom during late August, September and October so I can continue to have plenty of flowers in bloom for fresh arrangements. Autumn arrangements can be just as beautiful as those that were created with summer’s peak blooms.

    I’ve always been a fan of what I describe as “loose and natural” floral arrangements. Real stems rebel against being forced into a specific style. I just love the choices you made and pinned away.
