Delightful Dogwood DIY

Dogwood is one of my favorite tree flowers - nicely varied in size and color, not too sparse on the branch, and really delicate and elegant. For this arrangement, I wanted this beautiful pink-tinged dogwood to be the star, with some simple greens/fillers and a few small clusters of snowberry. The final result would make a great arrangement for an entry/foyer, but would also work well as a centerpiece on the dining table. Note: Dogwood will wilt pretty quickly in a warm environment, so try and place it out of direct sunlight and in a cooler spot.

Add the snowberry on one side tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

It may be difficult to see in the picture, but I started by trimming some smaller dogwood branches and laying them down as a base, 'weaving' them together in a manner that essentially fulfills the function of a basket-style floral frog. The larger branches are then placed in the 'woven' dogwood base tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Continue placing larger/taller branches until the desired fill and look has been achieved tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood
