Quick and Easy Pink Sunflower Arrangement

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…

While I’ve had a blast this summer with our sleepaway camp theme after spending time at the cabin, I’m beyond excited to start creating things for the upcoming 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…

  8. Oh I love the bit of feminine fall look of your pink sunflowers and your arrangement in the basket. The pink is perfect for transitioning to fall when it’s just too hot for the warmenr brown, orange and red tones of fall.
    You always come up with the most unique ideas!

    Thank you so much for joining the hop!

  9. I would never have thought of “pink” sunflowers but they’re gorgeous and you definitely have a way with pink, CoCo. I had to laugh at your reply to Michelle above. So funny. I say if you love it, run with it. It’s all so sweet and makes me think how precious for a little girl’s room decor!!

  10. Oh how pretty, I love the pink sunflower. What a beautiful floral arrangement.

    You are a girl after my own heart when it comes to pink. I just love it. It’s a happy color for me. I find myself trying to bring it out more and more. Your home is one of my favorites. This arrangement is so beautiful and perfect for fall or any season!

  13. The PINK sunflower 🌻 arrangement is fabulous! I love that you used pink. Fresh flowers are my first choice too but I often use artificial or dried florals in my booth and occasionally at home. Thank you for the inspiration and for the tip with using weights. Pinned.

  14. Girl, you know I love pink so when I saw this I smiled and sighed at the same time. Just another reason I love all things TCG! Featuring it on Farmhouse Friday tomorrow too. Thanks for linking up and your support. You are the best. pinned

    1. Thanks so much, Kristin! I couldn’t believe there were no yellow sunflowers at our flower market but it was fun trying to make these pink ones work. Every year I try to quit that color and every year it sneaks back into everything 🤣 Big hugs, CoCo

  15. This is just lovely CoCo! The pink is beautiful, and so perfect for easing into fall. I often forget about baskets as flower containers, but you’ve reminded me and I’m going to go scope out my baskets now! Thanks as always for the fabulous inspiration, and just the peacefulness of your beautiful photography. 💗 Happy September!

    1. Such sweet and kind words, Barbara, thank you. Baskets and ironstone definitely seem to be a weakness for me when I see them out on the treasure trail so I’m always trying to think of fresh ways to use them so they don’t pile up in our closets 😆 Honestly, they’re super easy to use. You could totally rock an arrangement like this in no time. Big hugs, CoCo
