We have a few projects to share with you from our visit to New York with Matthew Robbins Design. To start we have the perfect spring DIY arrangement from Matthew. All photographed by one of our favorite film wedding photographers Erich McVey.
Not only will it brighten any room up, it is incredibly easy and will literally take you a few minutes to whip out. To get started you will need your favorite spring floral in a pot. Matthew went with some bright yellow daffodils, you will also need a planting box/vessel for your arrangement several squares of cut burlap and some zip-lock bags.
As you will soon see, this do-it-yourself spring project is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3. It can easily be used as a rustic wedding centerpiece, or to brighten up your Easter dinner table.
1. Take your potted spring floral out of its pot and break it a part a bit so that it will fit in your desired container.
2. Place in a small zip-lock bag to absorb the water and protect your container.
3. Take your squares of burlap and wrap around zip-lock bag and place in container. Allowing the burlap to gently flow over the container and hide the plastic bag and soil.
Few tips from Matthew Robbins Design
You may also notice the painted seven on the side of the box. A great idea is to use your container as the table number as well. You can use a stencil and paint the numbers on the box.
Another great tip is to pick out your favorite material for a table runner or a table cloth. An easy and affordable idea to add lots of color without spending a lot of extra dough. Below are a few of our favorite fabrics for spring. Thank you so much to Matthew for this charming project, and stay tuned later in the week for another fabulous project from Matthew Robbins Design.
