Choosing Your Materials and Getting Inspired

Materials Needed:

Elegant Floral Arrangement: Step-by-Step

Prepare Your Glass Vase

Start with a sparkling clean glass vase to showcase the beauty of your arrangement. I chose  cylinder glass vase that I used for a previous floral arrangement. Cut a piece of chicken wire to fit inside the vase, forming a supportive cylinder for the flowers. Please use utility gloves and a heavy pair of wire cutters.  Be safe during the cutting process.  This setup not only adds structure but also a rustic touch to your elegant display. 

Create a Carrot Display

Arrange your carrots around the vase’s interior, between the chicken wire and the glass. The goal is to create a visually striking base with the carrots’ vibrant colors and textures, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of your arrangement. I ran out of carrots and will use more next time to conceal the chicken wire better.  However, the arrangement still look absolutely beautiful with less carrots.   The  green carrot tops should peek out for a natural, fresh look. For my arrangement, I decided to remove the green tops because I used large kale bunches around the perimeter of my arrangement.

Add Water for Freshness 

Carefully pour water into the vase to partially submerge the carrots, ensuring your floral arrangement stays hydrated and vibrant for as long as possible.

Arrange Your Flowers

Now, the creative part—arrange your chosen flowers within the chicken wire. This is where you can express your style, mixing and matching colors and textures to create a visually appealing bouquet that complements the unique base of carrots. I added fresh radishes using floral picks to add a “pop” of color.
