Home Decor, Accidental Dried Flowers

 

Okay, so I admit that I am a terrible gardener…

Which is ironic because I LOVE 💕 flowers

 

 

 

 

I love to have them in my house

 

 

 

 

I love to paint them

 

 

 

 

I love to create things with them

 

 

 

 

I love to do Tablescapes with them

 

 

 

 

A few weeks ago I shared an early Valentine’s Day table

 

 

 

 

The centerpiece was made up of a tall glass filled with candy

Flanked with 2 flower arrangements

 

 

 

 

The pink vase on the right held a bunch of ombre sweetheart roses

pink, yellow, orange and red

 

 

 

 

I got so much pleasure seeing them from all parts of the house

 

 

 

 

They seemed to last a really long time…

 

 

 

But, apparently I completely forgot to check the water…

 

 

 

 

Next thing I knew,

I had an arrangement of dried ombre roses…

 

 

 

 

I’m calling this a happy accident!

So save those Valentine flowers by drying them!

The proper method is to hang them upside down to dry…

ProFlowers has good information on drying flowers here

  1. I’m with you. I’m an awful gardener, too. I so appreciate it in others, and I’m always pleased when the yard/plants look good but I just either don’t have the knack, the time or the motivation! But bringing flowers inside like this? That’s my thing! I know the flower departments at the grocery must love me! The pink and yellow is so pretty together — happy colors!

  3. Jenna, the roses dried beautifully. Allowing the water to dry up often makes for gorgeous dried flowers! Happy Sunday!

    You do Jenna, have such lovely flowers in your home and I love the flowers you paint, especially daffodils!!! I’ve always enjoyed drying flowers and it happens, the accidental dried arrangement. I have a hard time parting with them after they’ve dried……..

    I’m like you when it comes to gardening. I’m not very good at it, but I love having flowers all around. I keep trying and am so excited when some of those flowers actually come from my garden.
