THE ROMANCE OF FALL FLORAL DIY

Good afternoon my lovelies! How much did you love our lifestyle editorial The Romance of Fall earlier this week? I promised our editorials would be inspirational and achievable, and I never break a promise. So today lovely Liz of Bluesky Flowers joins us to share her romantic fall centrepiece tutorial that is easy to recreate at home ready for your weekend dinner party!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • A suitable medium sized planter/vase with filled with wet oasis block
  • 5 quicksand Roses
  • 5 white Astilbe
  • 5 Lilac
  • 2 stems ocean Mikado spray roses
  • 2 stems white Snowberry
  • 5-7 stems Queen Anne’s lace
  • 5 stems Cotinus
  • Bunch autumnal eucalyptus

HOW TO:

  • Fill the planter/vase with the oasis block ensuring that some of the block is above the rim
  • Start with the eucalyptus, filling the space and set your final height and width with the length of stems you use
  • Add in cotinus and astilbe on the same basis
  • Place the queen Anne’s lace to get extra height and movement, keeping the stems longer and looser
  • Place the key flowers – roses, spray roses, snowberry and lilac to add interest all around, make sure they are at different heights/lengths
  • Fill in more foliage if necessary

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
