Vegetables give these flower arrangements a subtle twist. Here are the instructions for making our garden harvest centerpieces for the County Fair Party.

Planning a Mother’s Day lunch for the moms in your life? After you’ve arranged your flowers, give them some extra zest by adding some fresh cut fruit. Include oranges, lemons or limes in your arrangement by simply cutting the fruit in half, sticking the uncut end into a floral pick, then gently poking the floral pick into the oasis inside the vase. Make sure to add any fruit on the day of the party so that they will stay fresh.

We were so honored to be asked by HGTV.com to create this Mother’s Day Alfresco Lunch for their site–click over to see more of this party. And we’d like to thank Robin Mathis from Twigg Botanical for creating our floral arrangements. Her awesome talent doesn’t end here, she’s amazing at creating wedding arrangements too.

Serve a simple salad at your Bunny Party with these tasty Petits Palmiers tucked into the mixed greens to look like bunny ears. A crispy puff pastry cookie, these are available at Trader Joe’s and other grocery stores. Perfect for Easter, food can look cute and taste yummy too.

And if you’re including a floral arrangement at your party, don’t forget some ornamental cabbage with your springtime flowers.

Here is a last minute idea for a Thanksgiving Day table centerpiece. Easier than carving a pumpkin, just add some flowers and you’ll have a festive flower arrangement in minutes.

1. Cut off the top of the pumpkin.
2. Scrape out the seeds and other gooey insides of the pumpkin.
3. Carefully put a glass container into the pumpkin and fill with water.
4. Arrange your flowers inside the glass container.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Ever wonder how to arrange flowers? I am in love with this flower arrangement. If you would like to re-create this bouquet that we used for the Art Party yourself, here are the easy steps to follow.

Tools: serrated floral knife, pruners/garden clippers, 20-24 gauge floral wire, paper scissors

Flowers: pink gerbera daisies, dark pink roses, red pixie carnations, orange tulips, yellow ranunculus, yellow mums, kermit poms, bear grass, blue hydrangeas, purple liatris

A few tips from Megan: Keep the flowers in cold water until you are ready to use them. Strip the stems of excess foliage. Secure smaller bundles of flowers with a rubber band or floral wire. Trim the ends at an angle. You can tweak the flowers as you go until you get the right look. Have fun learning how to arrange flowers for yourself.
