How to Decorate in Modern English Florals


Two weeks ago, I published a blog, titled: How to decorate an English Tea Pot. In Lieu of the published post, We decided to showcase another work of DIY in reference to English Decor. This English Inspired had become one of our favorites, it makes us feel like we're in Europe.

Let's roll out our cards and get these fabulous decor this week.

Written by: Emari Grace I. Pimentel. Styled by: Joan Gay Fuentes. Shoot on Location by Home and Pantry

Prepare the following

3 Acrylic Risers
2 Varieties of  Large Glass Jars with cover
2 Varieties of Medium Glass Jars with cover
2 Varies of Wide Glass Jars with cover
1 Chrome Square Jar
Set of Pearls
Packs of Crystal Gems
Bouquet of Artificial Flowers in Vintage Look, use white and peach colors

Get this Look:

  1. Have a dark base to ensure that your light-colored materials will showcase their beauty
  2. Have all your Glass Jars filled a pack of Peach-colored artificial flowers, cover and wrap a pearl necklace on its lid forming like an infinity symbol or number eight.
  3. Place a bouquet of Artificial White Flowers on your Chrome Square Jars.
  4. For your First Set. Use 2 Acrylic Riser on top of each Large Glass Jars with Cover. Place this near the wall.
  5. For the Second Set. Place a Medium Glass Jars in front of the first set with a gap between them and slightly on the side.
  6. For the Third Set. Place Wide Glass Jar in angular form, this will somehow occupy some space between the first set and second set's gap. Place this on the side, making the second set to be in the middle of the First and Third Set.
  7. For the Chrome Vase, Fill it will white artificial roses. Place it beside the First set, wherein it will look like it's between the first set's glass jars.
  8. Lastly, Have crystal gems surround it.  This will match your glass jars and chrome vase and will soften the look of your base.
Wasn't it so easy to do? Like what I've set before it's all about adding dimensions. Take note recycling some of your stuff can bring a long way (Check: Succulents). You'll never know when your creative juices will come out. This is our last collaboration with Joan Gay Fuentes and Home and Pantry of this month of August. Catch her once again for another easy DIY Wednesday with her in the coming months.

The BER Months is fast approaching and we are soon to welcome another year of our lives and somehow, some of us have thought; "When would I get married?" Or "I want this kind of theme for my wedding!" And there are so many options to choose from. For those who want to showcase some of their creativity for a simple and elegant wedding. Here’s some DIY you can do with your bridesmaids while you’re waiting for your big day.

Flower Balls made Accessorized in Pearls

Prepare the following:

4 inches Styrofoam Ball 
Hot Glue / Quick Dry Glue (Make sure you’ve got plenty of these)
1 Pack of Golden Pearls
Artificial Thenold Flowers
Hair Pin

Preparation of Decorative Accessories

To get this look

  1.  Find the center of your Styrofoam ball and make a mark on its center on both ends. This will serve as your guide for the Artificial Thenold Flowers.
  2. Begin by placing the Artificial Thenold Flowers glued to the Styrofoam balls center. Let it dry.
  3. Once dry, Glue another Artificial Thenold Flowers until it forms another set of flowers around the center. Do this until it’s fully covered.
  4.  Make sure its completely dry, and when it is. Glue your pearls on the center of each flower. Do this one at a time.
  5. At last, you can add a ribbon by using a hairpin nailed to the Styrofoam for your final touches.

Do not be overwhelmed that you will be making a bunch of DIY for you or your friend. Just enjoy doing the DIY. So you’ll have a quality outcome of what you are making. Doing a DIY for a wedding is great for girl bonding after all one of your girls has stepped out of the single-hood.

How to decorate succulent plants

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of succulents as a decorative indoor plant and for our first DIY Wednesday, I am collaborating with my dear friend, Joan Gay Fuentes of Home and Pantry to give us a glimpse on How to decorate succulent plants in 4 easy steps.

How to decorate succulent plants

For a Contemporary-Rustic decor, We picked up 5 items
1 piece Frame
2 set of Clear vases with succulents
1 set of chrome vases with succulents
1 piece of Acrylic Riser

To get this look.

    1. Place Frame on the Side to give emphasize as this is the tallest item
    2. Place the taller vase above the acrylic riser  and place it in front of the frame
    3. Next is the second clear vase, placed in front of the first vase with an acrylic forming an illusion of a three steps stair; all in a vertical line.
    4. Place the Chrome vase in front of the rustic frame and aligned it with the second glass vase; this gives a contrasting feel to the rustic-themed frame and breaks the monotonous vertical shape of the first three items which also balances the modern feel that the two glass vase shows.
