I’m always searching the internet for new sources of inspiration to satisfy my curiosity and passion for the wonderful world of flowers.
Pinterest is one of these sources. I enjoy it a lot because of how easy it is to browse so many ideas and visuals at once. I found myself lately collecting a lot of interesting and creative ways to grow plants and reuse different objects as flower pots.
Below are some photos from my board ‘flower containers‘:
I thought it will be great to have a beautiful table arrangement for Christmas dinner. For my project I used a very known Christmas colour combination: green-red-white. But if you like other ones or want to have an eccentric arrangement, just choose other elements than mine.
The holiday spirit is coming to life. I had this project in mind since last week, but didn’t find the proper boots for it, so I spent most of the time searching for raining boots and finally ended up with a boot shaped flowerpot.

One of the most used techniques is the wiring.
It can be used for so many different reasons: to extend de length of a flower, adding leafs, corsages, flower bracelets, tiaras or the mechanism of different arrangements.

I used the wiring technique to form new stems for the flowers. My innovation was making the bracelet with the long wires used in the stems. I’ve covered them with flower tape and wrapped around my hand.
I found a good advice video while searching for techniques used in flower arrangements. I think it’s useful for anyone who wants to make a good impression or to choose the best flower combination for a bouquet.
I agree with this information till step 5, were a good florist will give the final touch of the bouquet exactly with greens that they advice you to take out.
