The move to create that ultimate summer al fresco dining set up is to really rely on thoughts of opulence and excessiveness in our own pace. Fortunately we are in a great place to indulge in our own time to work on the most impactful displays. Recently MUJI the go to for standard minimalist Japanese wares collaborated with Kelsie Hayes of @Popupflorists to present a floral workshop which celebrates new blooms as well as highlights the beauty in dried flowers to create the ultimate eclectic and budget friendly display of blossoms and foliage. Below we inspect the highlights.

Utilizing 2 empty bowls place the smaller in the larger and fill the small bowl with water.

Using tape, create a grid of 3 x 4 to help suspend the various plants.

Placing in the fresh plant leaves into the center, be sure to angle them to allow for a directional flow that will help the rest of the center piece come together. A pro tip is to avoid dipping in the leaves into the water to stop bacterial growth.

The addition of dried flowers are placed on the outer rim of the bowls dry space. The dried flowers add a much needed dimension and texture to the arrangement.

Adding Cattails and dried Pampas grass provides a surprise element to finish up the arrangement
