We’re sharing three simple summer flower arrangement ideas today!
The minute the calendar rolls over into summer, I immediately start checking my list to see what indoor projects need to be completed.
It’s just too hot and humid to be outside!
That said, sometimes I can get so caught up in my list I completely forget to add seasonal pops of color throughout the house to make everything feel festive.
Here’s a look at how you can create simple summer flower arrangements for your house this season too…
Simple Summer Flower Arrangement Supplies:
- Flowers (some of the flowers featured in this post are faux and some are real)
- Flower Container
- Rubber Band, optional
- Ribbon, optional
- Floral Foam, optional
- Tarp to protect your work surface
Simple Summer Flower Arrangement Steps:
Gather your supplies and lay a drop cloth or a tarp down to protect your work surface.
If you’re using real flowers use caution and care to cut your flower stems down to the appropriate length as scissors will be sharp,
If you’re using mostly faux flowers, (as shown in these steps) you can usually bend the stems to the size you need.
Baskets like these make great containers if you’re using faux flowers.
Begin by loosely arranging the largest flowers in your hand one at a time until you’ve created a bouquet.
Then, carefully tie a rubber band around the base of your bouquet. This will help you keep the shape!
Place your bouquet in your container and fluff the flowers just a bit. You don’t want them to look smashed or held together.
Next place your smaller flowers into the bigger bouquet. I usually choose a completely different accent color for this step.
After your accent flowers are in place, add something with texture.
We found these stems at Joanns. They have such a pretty peachy-pink colored berry.
Finally, add bits of greenery.
We clipped this from our yard and it’s amazing how adding really greenery to faux flowers makes a simple summer flower arrangement look a little bit more “natural.”
As always make sure you clean yard or garden flowers and greenery well. You definitely don’t want to bring any pests inside!
Step back to see if your arrangement needs anything else.
Most of the time, you’ll be good to go.
But on the off chance you adore ribbon too, it does add a pretty touch.
Other Quick and Easy Ideas to Try…
Over the years we’ve worked hard to declutter because I love it when our home feels cozy but without a lot of extra fluff.
We don’t have a ton of storage space either, so I try to just keep simple flower arrangements in the common areas of the house.
The arrangement I shared above is in our breakfast nook.
Here is what I created for the kitchen…
and the living room.
As always use caution and care when creating simple summer flower arrangements like these if you have curious littles or mischievous pets.
Undeniably, the minute I set these on the coffee table it was too much for Piper to handle, and I had to move them to the dining room!
