Making flower arrangements takes a creative eye and a little patience. This weekend I had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite Toronto bloggers Emily from, Threads and Blooms.
Collaborating with Threads and Blooms
Here is a little background on how we connected! Emily and I have been following each other on social media for a few years now. Our social media relationship grew as we consistently commented and liked posts and appreciating each others work as bloggers.
Even when I posted a new job Emily took the time to comment with a big congrats. It’s funny how nowadays you can connect with a community online without ever being in the same room. As time went on and our channels grew we finally reached out to meet and plan a collaboration!
We hope you enjoy our DIY on how to make a christmas flower arrangement!
- Clean your flowers and greens removing all extra leaves sitting below the waterline.
- Prep your vase with flower tape.
- Green your arrangement first using a variety of plants. Work on the outside quadrants in allowing your plants to do their own thing. Show expression through loose pieces.
- Add your largest flowers first. Hold your vase up to help you place your large pieces on different plains.
- Work with your smaller flowers filling in the spaces and clipping them different lengths. The more dimension you can add to your arrangement horizontally and vertically the more interesting it will be.
- Play with your flowers and greens pulling some out and tucking some in. Now that all your flowers are in you can remold the arrangement as you see fit.
- Voila! Impress all of your guests this holiday with your savvy flower skills!

Cleaning your flowers is a crucial step to their longevity. Remove all leaves sitting below the waterline in your vase to prevent bacteria in your arrangement. You can find flower tape at any flower retailer. This step really helps you shape your arrangement as soon as you start placing greens!
Preparation is the key to your arrangements longevity!
Happy hosting this holiday friends!
A huge thank you to Emily of Threads and Blooms for making this post possible
