Luscious Miscellany

Happy Monday friends! For today's DIY I wanted to use more than three or four flower types, so I grabbed as many as I thought would look gorgeous together. Sometimes it's fun to see how different floral varieties and textures can complement each other in one vessel. The succulents in my garden have been flowering, so I decided to use them instead of foliage. The addition of tuberose also adds a lovely aroma to the arrangement. I really liked how this turned out - so luscious in color and texture that it almost looks edible.

Begin by placing the succulents inside your vase as the base for the arrangement Kiana Underwood /

Then add the tuberose Kiana Underwood /

I really like begonias - they are very delicate and pretty - and I thought that they would look particularly lovely paired with tuberose and orchid Kiana Underwood /

Sometime hydrangea can overpower an arrangement due to its large size and fill, so I'm careful about how I use it. Unless I want to make a statement with it as the star, I try to use the more delicate types and in limited placement. For this piece, I chose some smaller ones and only used two stems. The color is beautiful and the bloom is complementary without overpowering. Add the hydrangea to one side of the arrangement. Kiana Underwood /

Finally, add just a couple of stems of orchid in a complementary color Kiana Underwood /
