Novelty Bouquets with J!

Today on At Home with Flowers, you’re joining me behind the scenes to Novelty Arrangements (for Episode 313 – Bloom Happy *You can watch it here!). I show you how we made a clown out of flowers and a tiger out of Chrysanthemums…Both of these feature Pipe Cleaner Features that are hand crafted and then attached to the flowers with a low temp glue gun. I also create a Smile Mug arrangement in a Vintage McCoy Smile Mug…and we talk about how to make the contents of a Flower Soda. You can see these flower arrangements in action on Life in Bloom. I relate some fun stories about crafting the accessories with lots of fond memories from the Flower Shop! Enjoy!

    Boy did that bring back old memories. I like how you said you use to get punished by making all the chenille pieces for the mum arrangements. I myself didn’t care much for that back in the 60′s. We didn’t have hot glue then either, so floral adhesive was it and was a pain to use. Never saw a tiger being made though. Must have missed that one on the East coast where I was at the time in New Jersey. Thanks for a trip back in time.
