Today we’re featuring a great DIY by Santa Barbara Chic. To recreate this simple fall wedding arbor you will need:

Flowers:

– 3 bunches of orange dahlias

– 2 bunches of red dahlias

– 1 bunch of black dahlias

– 1 bunch of black cosmos

– 1 bunch of black scabiosa

– 3 bunches of maple leaf

– 3 bunches of bittersweet

– 2 bunches of orange berries

– 2 bunch of striped red/yellow tulips

Tools:

-Floral shears or pruner (especially for branches)

-Green floral wire

-Caged floral foam, large

To make the arrangement, started by wiring maple branches to the trellis to create a nice base shape. Then, using floral wire, attach your caged floral foam. Begin by layering in bittersweet and orange berry branches. Placed your 3 types of dahlias, poppies, tulips, and then place your smaller flowers, the scabiosa and cosmo, into the floral foam. And there is your classic fall wedding arbor!
