A few days ago I posted a photo of my flower arranging room on my Instagram. The photo was somewhat “real life” as the room was kind of a mess. I was really surprised, and happy, with the reaction. Many of you loved the photos, loved that I had a flower arranging room and wanted to know what it would take to have a flower arranging room of your own. So today I am going to help you understand how easy it is to set up your own flower arranging room.
First thing, I need to come clean. Technically my “flower arranging room” is not a room. It’s the end of a room. More specifically, it is located at one end of our butler’s pantry. The area used to be my “coffee area”. But after creating my “coffee area” I quickly came to the realization that I didn’t need a specific area to make coffee. I make a cup of Starbuck’s Viva instant coffee every morning. And I use hot water from our instant hot faucet (which is in our kitchen). The total time it takes me to make a cup of coffee is about fifteen seconds. I couldn’t quite see the need for an entire area that I used a few seconds a day.
Thus, I changed it into a flower decorating room.
Let me share with you what exactly is in my flower arranging room. First off, there was already a copper sink in the counter which is great but not an absolute. You just need water nearby.
Here is what you do need to have:
- a counter area to sort, cut and arrange your flowers
- tall flower buckets to hold flowers (fresh and faux)
- cutting tools such as clippers, rose leaf remover, scissors, floral wire
- garden gloves
Here is what you might want, but don’t need to have:
- decor signs pertaining to flowers
- clay pots, vintage metal pots
- faux flowers
As you can see, you don’t need a lot to have a flower arranging room. In fact, you don’t even need a room. All you really need is an area. There is likely a counter, table or area in your kitchen, pantry, or laundry room that might work perfectly.
In fact, you might even have an unused “coffee station” that would work perfectly.
