Flower Arranging And Supplies
Do you like fresh flowers in your home? I do but I can't afford to buy fresh flowers every week. But I trim flowers off my bushes and flowers in the yard during the summer and keep a knot in little vases. I'll pick gardenias, daffodils, marigolds, zinnias, wild flowers, etc.
I have a collection of different sizes of vases. I particularly like vintage vases. I also have a small collection of frogs. Maybe you are like me and have never heard of a flower frog. These are metal, glass or pottery pieces that you put in the bottom of a vase and it holds flower stems secure and in place. Here are flower frogs:
There are other floral supplies that you keep if you arrange fresh or silk flowers such as styrofoam bricks, floral tape, scissors, wire cutters, floral wire, etc.
How do you keep all these things organized?
If you do a lot of floral arranging, then you might want a dedicated space for it. Here are some great examples:
If you can't afford a nice room dedicated to flower arranging, then you can set aside a closet or a cabinet.
Corral all your vases, frogs, floral supplies and store together so you can always find your supplies. You'll probably want several sizes of vases from small, stem, medium sized and large.
Here are some easy, simple and beautiful ideas for arrangements.
Flower vases and floral frogs can be used for other things besides flowers. Here are some ideas:
Use a vase to hold kitchen utensils, a smaller one for the smaller utensils
Use a vase for holding breadsticks or biscottis
Use a vase for holding salt for cooking
A vintage planter/vase by the kitchen sink can hold your sponges and scrubs
A large vase can hold your candles
A vase can hold straws
A vase can hold your sweetener packets
A vase can hold small collections such as marbles, buttons, Olympic pins,
Use a clear glass vase for candle holders
A vase would be a good holder of loose change
Vases in the bathroom can hold qtips, cotton balls, toothbrushes, etc.
A vase would hold office supplies like pens and pencils
