Western Floral Ideas
For a western event, structured flower arrangements would look out of place. If you want a total old west motif, you will want to have your flowers look simple and hand done. Remember in the old west they would not have had a florist and hot house flowers. Want to do it yourself?
Try the following:
Types of flowers: Wildflowers, Gerbera Daisies,
Asters, Snap Dragons, Spray Roses, Marigolds, Black-eyed Susan,
Sunflowers, Wax Flowers, Crocusmia (Mt. Bresia), Limonium Misty,
Solidago, Delphinium and shafts of Wheat.
Fill containers (buckets, watering
cans, jelly jars, galvanized pails, boots, baskets, tin cans &
flowers and set on the tables.
Use denim tablecloths and
Mason Jars with gerbera daisies, attach a bandana print
ribbon with a wood monogram around the jar.
Jelly jars for votive holders
and to hold small bouquets of flowers
Save soup-sized tin cans, spray paint silver, and use as
flower containers. Add coils of rope, raffia, to containers
for additional accent..
Use soft rope, raffia and
wild weed looking accents in floral arrangements.
Float a candle in a quart size Mason jar, place a floral
ring around the jar with ivy trailing out of the ring.
Straw Bales and add an arrangement of real daisies
or wildflowers to the top of each one. Add some hurricane
lamps with some ivy trim.
Build columns from old barn wood,
bandanas and add a fern
Use driftwood, wheat, greenery & wildflowers to add a western flair to a trellis.
Coils of rope with flowers added
make great wall decor or use coils of rope to cover containers.
Tie bunches of wildflowers to wooden fence posts or weave wheat into latticework.
Make a grapevine wreath decorated with dried
herbs and hang on the entry door.
Place a plant and
bandana into a
boot, place a couple of large rocks next to the boot.
Use a quart size Mason jar, add a votive
candle, place inside a floral ring with ivy trailing over the table.
bandana in the center of a
table, tie strips of bandana fabric together to use as a runner
on tables. Place flowers into
Straw Bales .
Make shapes (hearts, boots & etc.)
Float candles in galvanized pails or wide
mouth Mason jars.
Use a wide mouth Mason jar. Add a couple of
inches of water. Float a single flower head in the water. To keep your
flower from sinking in the water, cut a circle from a Styrofoam plate that
is slightly smaller than the flower. Push the flower stem through the
middle of the Styrofoam and place into the water. The stem should only be
about an inch long.
Wrought-iron candelabras will add to the festive, outdoorsy atmosphere, a fitting scene for a formal western
