We’re sharing a quick and easy pink sunflower arrangement today as we team up with some of our favorite ladies for a Sunflowers in Bloom Blog Hop hosted by the always creative Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home.
If you’re coming over from my sweet friend Michelle’s blog, Thistle Key Lane, welcome, we’re excited to have you here.
Didn’t you love all her easy ways to transition to Fall? She’s so talented!
I’ve spent most of the week getting all our Fall bins down from the attic and sorting through everything. It’s been so much fun!
This island cottage doesn’t have a lot of storage space. So, I try to repurpose as many things as I can from one year to the next.
Especially, when it comes to seasonal florals.
While my preference will always be fresh flowers sometimes they’re not available in our area yet.
But don’t sweat it if this happens to you too.
Now is a great time to stretch your creative muscle and find budget-friendly ways to reimagine what you already have on hand.
Here’s a look at our quick and easy pink sunflower arrangement…
Pink Sunflower Arrangement Supplies:
- 1 Floral Bush (in the color of your choice)
- 5-10 Floral Stems (to coordinate with the floral bush)
- Greenery Stems
- Ribbon, optional
- Basket or Container (I used a bottle basket)
- Weights, optional
Pink Sunflower Arrangement Steps:
Gather your supplies.
Make sure your basket or flower container is free from dirt and debris.
There were no sunflowers at our flower market the day I picked up supplies for this post.
So, I decided to use a faux flower bush and stems I picked up at Joann’s earlier this summer. These are all from the Bloom Room line.
Using caution and care as stems may be sharp, bend the stems of the faux floral bush into a hook shape.
You can drape it over the back of your basket if no one is going to see that part of your pink sunflower arrangement.
Or you can tuck the bent stems directly into the basket.
Once you have the stems in place, gently fan them out.
Depending on the kind of basket or container you’re using, this will help act as a grid for your other faux stems.
Begin tucking the stems, one by one, into the grid until the arrangement looks the way you want.
After you have all the faux floral stems in place, add your greenery picks.
Accent with a ribbon, if desired.
Keep in Mind…
Given this quick and easy pink sunflower arrangement only uses one side of the bottle basket, I had to add several weights into the cubbies of the basket to keep it from leaning over.
So, I just wanted to give you a heads up in case you find yourself in a similar situation.
Prepping for the Fall Season…
And I know so many of you are too!
This quick and easy pink sunflower arrangement is perfect for those of you who want to ease your way into Fall or for those of you who like to sprinkle bits of Fall around the house and decorate as you go.
I’ve used mostly pink sunflowers, roses, and hydrangeas for this arrangement. But you can use this same technique (unless you’re using real flowers) to create any color and flower combination you like!
Up next on the Sunflowers in Bloom Blog Hop is my sweet friend Shelley from Calypso in the Country. She always has such a beautiful style, I can’t wait to see how she’s using sunflowers this fall.
Once you’re finished there, be sure to check out what the rest of these fabulous ladies are sharing…
