Aussie Aussie Aussie! – Australia Day Flower Arrangement
with Banksias, Kangaroo Paw and Solidaster
Happy Australia Day Weekend! Despite the contentious date, there really is no better season to celebrate the old green ‘n gold. With these sizzling hot summer days and the holiday buzz of the nights, it’s the best time to appreciate all things Aussie.
That goes for our amaaazing flora too. All silvery tones and rugged dramatic shapes. This week’s box is a veritable tasting platter of botanicals from our sunburnt country, with a splash of solid gold from the solidaster.
It’s a combo that’s as fresh as your first bite into a frosty splice.
Style it your way this week, piling stems short and low near the mouth of your vase for a more classic arrangement, or style stems at full height in individual vases for a modern sculptural take on Aussie natives. Either way, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful long lasting blooms that are also perfect for drying out.
Here’s what you’ll need.
showstopping Australian native flower like a banksia
filler flowers like solidaster or strawflowers
2 stems of kangaroo paw
clean glass vase
sharp scissors or flower shears
