bright summer outdoor arrangement

Bring a multitude of color to your table with this colorful Bright Summer Outdoor Arrangement! See the materials and instructions to learn how to make this simple DIY!
Step 1

Place two pieces of black cardstock horizontally inside the lantern to provide a background, seen through the holes punched in the lantern. This will prevent the floral foam from being visible through the lantern holes. 

Step 2

Cut floral foam to fit inside the cardstock-lined lantern. 

Step 3

Begin designing the arrangement by adding floral pieces, such as Dracaena leaves and hanging succulents, that can drape over the sides of the lantern. 

Step 4

Cut apart the rose bush and position the individual stems in the center of the arrangement, as seen in the photo. 

Step 5

Fill in the open areas surrounding the roses with pops of yellow and white flowers. Position Dahlias so they project over the sides of the lantern, allowing it to look whimsical and contemporary. 

Step 6

To increase the width of the arrangement, add greenery flowing onto the table with dainty bamboo leaves.

TIP: This arrangement is perfect for placement, to be seen from all angles.
