Make A Cup Of Flowers And Decorate Your Home

I love to create pretty cups of flowers and place them around our home, on the landing window ledge, a side table as you enter the front door, or a couple across the kitchen table. I have used dried or fresher flowers and have included objects we have found on special walks or outings.

For dried Autumn displays I like to include conkers, dried lavender, peony heads, poppy seed heads, blue sea holly, and pretty strawflowers. The conker I made a small hole and insert some florist wire so I could push it into the biodegradable oasis.

I also love to make seasonal Cups Of Flowers as fresh flower gifts, perfect to say thank you or as a little Birthday treat. These are simple to create with garden flowers, I like to use sweetpeas, feverfew, small dahlia’s, miniature sunflowers such as Helianthus annuus ‘Sonja' or Helianthus debilis 'Vanilla Ice’. Many combinations look great together and see the easy six-step guide below how to create a Cup of Flowers yourself at home.

DIY Cup Of Flowers Kit


Flowers, foliage, cup and saucer, florist wire, biodegradable oasis, sharp scissors or florist snips, label if gifting. See the Cup Of Flower Kit to help you create your own.

Time: 20 minutes

1. Pick flowers and foliage from your garden, early in the morning is the ideal time as the plants are hydrated or use dried the choice is yours.

2. Layout your materials such as a vintage cup with saucer, florist wire, sharp scissors.

3. I recommend pressing the oasis into the cup and using a biodegradable oasis. Pull the oasis out and a cup imprint will be left. Cut where the narrow end will be close to the bottom of the cup, then slide the oasis in so it is level. 

4. Ensure there is a good fit but do leave a little room for water around the edges and for the oasis to swell a little with water. Keep topped up with water to prolong the display's life.

5. Trim your selected flowers and pick out pretty foliage and any textured items you may wish to include, seed pods, conkers,s, or grasses.

6. It is good to add height to the center of the teacup so add taller structures of foliage and interesting textures here first and fill the rest of the cup with flowers. Turn the cup as you fill with your blooms and alternate coloured flowers and foliage.

Once completed display and photograph your DIY Cup Of Flowers creation. Keep to admire or gift to delight someone special. #DIYcupofflowers
