Easily create an elegant tulip eucalyptus floral arrangement with my three step process. Once you learn the key to a great arrangement, there’s no stopping the floral possibilities!
I love this simple quote with such a beautiful reflection: ‘May the flowers remind us why the rain was so necessary.” It’s crazy how many life lessons we can be reminded of by just looking at a simple flower. Years ago, I would never buy fresh flowers for our home – it just seemed like a waste. But now, I get flowers about once a month. The flowers seem to add life, color and a sweet natural fragrance to our home. So, I love to bring them home and experiment with different flower combinations. This week I created an elegant tulip eucalyptus floral arrangement that is taking center stage in our kitchen.
This arrangement may look complicated or to hard to replicate. But I promise you – it’s so not! I follow a three step process that pretty much guarantees a gorgeous floral arrangement every time.
So this whole process starts with three words which might sound familiar; thriller, filler and spiller. These three terms are often mentioned when talking about container gardens. I actually wrote a post about container garden tips HERE. But this same method can easily be applied to a simple indoor flower arrangement as well.
Let me show you the step by step so you can see how easy it is to create this tulip eucalyptus floral arrangement for your home.
Select Your Combination
First you want to pick out the thriller. I chose to use tulips but the options here are limitless. Roses, Hydrangeas, Ranunculus, and Peonies are also pretty thrillers for a floral bouquet. Basically you want your thriller to be a rather big flower that can take center stage.
Then you want to choose the filler. This is a flower that’s going to fill in some of the empty places in the floral arrangement. This flower can also add some nice color contrast to your thriller flowers. I picked baby’s breath for my arrangement but some other great filler flowers are Bells of Ireland, Delphinium, Dusty Miller, and Feverfew Daises.
Lastly, is the spiller. This is the part of the arrangement that will spill over the edge of the arrangement. For spillers, I love use any type of eucalyptus. But some other great picks are Heather, Italian Ruskus, or Myrtle.
So now let me show you how I used this simple process to assemble the floral arrangement.
Start With the Spiller
I like to start by placing my spiller in the vase first. Eucalyptus can have rather long stems so I trim them down. Then I pull off any leaves that are low enough to get submerged in the water. The rule is only stems in the water – no leaves. 🙂
Next, Is The Thriller
Keeping with the same idea of no leaves in the water, I cut off the lower tulip leaf. Then I added the tulips to my vase, trying to disburse them in an even amount for each of my vase buds.
Finally, The Filler
Now all that is left is to insert my filler flower, the baby’s breath. I tried to place in any empty spots to give a nice pop of white to the display. And that is it! One elegant tulip eucalyptus floral arrangement successfully done. 🙂
So now that you’ve seen how easy it is, I hope you will spend a few extra dollars once a month and treat your home to a beautiful floral arrangement. Oh and here’s a few of my favorite style vases too…
And just for fun, here’s one more life perspective thanks to flowers: ‘No seed ever sees the flower.’ Mind blown right?! 🙂
