How to Make a Wildflower Arrangement

I love how the wildflowers bloom so beautiful as summer comes to a close. Over the last few years, I’ve attempted a wildflower garden at the base of our hill, but just have a few varieties growing. I enjoy filling our home with them, but am not giving up on adding more varieties. Today I’m showing you how to make a wildflower arrangement whether you find them along a country road, at the farmer’s market or your local grocer!

PS, I found them at the grocery store. Whole Foods. There are so many beautiful flowers at grocery stores and they’re often very seasonal, so I was delighted to find these pretty wildflowers earlier this week. If you don’t see something you’re looking for, just ask! Often they will have their own stash of blooms for flower arrangements, especially when it comes to fillers like thistle and seeded eucalyptus.

Ready to learn how to make a wildflower arrangement? The key is to keep it loose and fun. 

  1. Remove any leaves that will fall below the base of the vase. This will make the wildflower arrangement not only look beautiful, but last longer as it reduces bacteria. 
  2. Starting with your largest bloom {or in my case ornamental kale}, add 3 stems allowing them to fall in different directions trimming to your desired length. Note: I like the keep the large blooms of equal length. a step by step tutorial to create a wildflower arrangement
  3. Next, take your wispiest flower, in my case it’s Queen Anne’s lace, which has always been a favorite! Trim it to rest 3+ inches above your other stems and allow to fall into place for that “I didn’t even try” look. Note: you can even allow them to remain connected to naturally space out. a step by step tutorial to create a wildflower arrangement a step by step tutorial to create a wildflower arrangement
  4. Start filling in with smaller blooms. For a wildflower arrangement, I like to keep it from becoming too full / tight. how to arrange wildflowers tips to create a beautiful wildflower centerpiece

The beauty of wildflowers is that they are effortless, there’s no right or wrong way to arrange them. I love a little high low look, notice the Queen Anne’s Lace on the right is higher than the lower left side hanging bloom. Have fun with it!
