Step One. Gather all materials. Collect all of the floral, greenery and ribbon accents that you wish to include in your floral arrangements – think mini boutonnieres. You can forage the materials from your backyard or buy them from your local florist or grocery store.  For our arrangements, we used the following:

  • Slate gray silk ribbon
  • Greenery (boxwood, evergreen)
  • Juniper + holly berries
  • Garden roses
  • Floral wire
  • Scissors

Step Two. Assemble the arrangement. Arrange your floral and greenery elements starting with the tallest pieces first. Then continue adding other accents, saving the flowers for the last step.

Step Three. Secure the arrangement. Cut a piece of floral wire, about 4 inches long, and wrap around the base of the arrangement to secure it. Cut any excess wire.

Step Four. Add the ribbon. Cut a piece of ribbon and wrap it around the arrangement. Tie a bow around the stem of the glass for a festive look. Fabric ribbons are less likely to fray when cut at an angle. Fold the ribbon in half lengthwise. Then cut across the ribbon at approximately a 45 degree angle, starting at the outer edges and cutting upwards toward the folded side.

Step Five. Fill your glass and toast to a southern living state of mind.
