The Phoenix Style Flower Arrangement!

Do you enjoy flowers but would like to feel a deeper connection while working with them? Then I recommend trying a Phoenix style arrangement.

The Phoenix Style Flower Arrangement is made up of a compact round base with straight lines bursting out from the center.  It’s shape and strong lines represent the mythological Phoenix.

The Phoenix is a mythological creature that is consistently characterized as a bird with brightly colored plumage, which, after a long life, dies in a fire of its own making only to rise again from the ashes.

The Phoenix represents rebirth, renewel and strength.  And springtime is a perfect time of year to make this arrangement. There are lovely spring flowers coming to life and beautiful blooming branches available.

The Quince branches I used were still budding and blooming, and my milk glass head vase was he perfect vessel to hold this style arrangement.

Now it’s time for you do some flower therapy. Think about what you would like to overcome, release or renew in your life.  With that intention in mind:

  1. Gather some delicious flowering branches and some brightly colored round shaped flowers.
  2. Place your branches in a vase first representing the release
  3. Then fill around the branches making a tight compact base representing the renew.
  4. And then enjoy your “therapy session” all week long.

And just in case you need a bit more nudging….look at all the beautiful spring blooming branches out there right now.  So go grab those snippers and bring some flower-empowerment into your life today!
