I love having fresh greens around. But, as we all know, having fresh flowers around the house gets pretty pricey pretty fast. Herbs, however, are only about $1-$2 a sprig (or free if you grow them yourself!) and can make just as much of an impact. An herb arrangement makes for super practical home decor/centerpieces and are a great quick fix if you’re needing to add a little more green to your display!
What you’ll need:
- A bunch of herbs! (everything in the photo above cost me around $10)
- Assorted vases / cans / jars
The key with herbs is mixing textures. Since they all tend to be in the same color range, texture is what is really going to give definition to your arrangement — without varying textures, all the pretty details get lost and your bouquet may end up looking more like a bush. Start by making a few different combinations, taking note of the ones you like — a couple I ended up with were a sage/rosemary/thyme combo and a dill/sage/rosemary combo. I find that dill and rosemary play well with almost everything due to their unique shape/texture!
Gather your vases (smaller is better, so the herbs don’t get swallowed by the containers), add a bit of water…
Start playing around and use your creativity! There’s no right or wrong way with these, just trim and tweak until they’re to your liking — even throw in a couple fresh flowers for some extra life!
Look! I even made my very first vine video for you guys in honor of this post — you can view it here :) What do you think?
