Project: Food + Flower + Style


I’ve had this little floral project
on my to-do list for quite some time, and I finally got my act in gear to
put it together. It was first posted over the summer on one of my
favourite blogs, Food + Flower + Style.
The arrangement is easy to assemble but the result is so
elegant—and versatile, too. You can use any blossom you choose and
can even change them up with new flowers as the old ones get tired.


The process is simple. Just buy some kitty grass and poke it into
the container of your choice. Of course if you want the grass to last
for any length of time, it’s best to leave it in its plastic drainage
pot and just slip that pot into a prettier one (I picked the above pots
up at Ikea for $2 each). Then trim down the stem of your chosen
flower—Dahlias in this instance—and gently lodge it in the bed of
grass. Such a budget-friendly centerpiece for dinner parties, or even a
shower or DIY wedding!


If you’re not familiar with the Food + Flower + Style
blog, you’ve got to go visit. The posts are gorgeous to look at and a
pleasure to read: dreamy and contemplative yet instructive too. And it
seems like they have some exciting plans in the works for fall, so
check it out!

    Those flower pots are SOOO cute! Love them!

  2. The City Sage Says:

    Aren’t they adorable? And can you believe they were only $2 each? Ikea is the best for those sorts of little home decor finds!

    I am in love with these flowers…simply gorgeous!

  4. The City Sage Says:

    Thanks Sweet & Saucy! The best thing about this project is that it looks so nice but requires so little labour to produce (not like those MTV movie premiere cookies I seem to recall you did a while back! i’m in the throes of a similar cookie project so I can totally feel your pain on that one!)
    thanks for stopping by!

    GORGEOUS! I’m going to do that at Christmas for my floral arrangement. Love your blog 🙂

  6. The City Sage Says:

    Thanks Liz. One of my favourite things about this arrangement is how it feels so “alive” instead of just having cut stems—it will look AMAZING for the holidays. send pics if you end up making it!
    And thanks for the love—I think your blog is pretty darn neat too 🙂
