Japanese Anemone

I have had my eye on Japanese anemone for a while now and have been wanting to do an all white arrangement, so once these lovely flowers became available, I took the opportunity. They are not quite like the other colorful anemones - to me they look more like poppies, don't you think? I know that I've been doing a lot of colorful arrangements lately. In general, bright pops of color are all the rage these days. Let's face it, who doesn't like bright and happy flowers!? That said, white can really make a statement too, and so I combined different textures of white and green for this DIY. I think a piece like this would be lovely for an all white or white and green-themed wedding.

Begin by filling the vase with bouvardia to create a base in which to place the anemones Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Add the lacecap foliage Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

At this point, you have a strong enough base in which to place the anemones without them falling all over the place. I considered not adding the last two flower types, as it looks beautiful just as is, but I thought that it would be nice to add the last two for a whimsical touch. You could certainly stop right here if you wish. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

And finally, the grass. Now it is a little more dreamy! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
