Teacup Flower Arrangement DIY

 What is small, sweet and cute as a button? A flower arrangement in a tea cup, that's what! 

My sister has been collecting tea cups for what seems like forever. Growing up, she'd plan tea parties for us using the real deal and I always felt this sort of reverence for these precious and lovely pieces of history....because goodness knows Melissa (my sister) did not collect just any teacup! They were always found objects from antique hunting, gifted from an elderly relative or purchased at vintage stores.

I was recently gifted this tea cup with what I think has magnolia flowers on it. The moment I laid eyes on it I was already planning to fill it with delicate and English garden-worthy blooms.
Can you imagine how pretty a group of these babies would be at a garden party or as favors at a bridal shower?
Oh the possibilities! 

Here is the list of flowers I used for this arrangement...

Light pink peony
Light pink spray roses
Silver dollar eucalyptus 

This time of the year is the BEST! So many beautiful, fragrant flowers! I was so excited to be able to use some of my favorite blooms in here.

You will need:

-a teacup
-small amount of flowers and greenery
-thin, clear florist tape (can be purchased at a flower shop)
-sharp scissors 

  1. Using the clear tape, create a grid. Make sure the tape is secure to the edge of the cup.
  2. Fill 3/4 of the cup with water.
  3. Cut greenery in small to medium pieces, strip the bottom leaves so that only the stems will touch water. Place them around the grid so as to make a "frame" for the flowers.
  4. Place flowers in and among the greenery, careful to cover entire cup to prevent bald spots.
Done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I loved every minute of the process!
