Snowball Viburnum :: Easy Flower Arranging Tips ::


Don’t you love these Snowball Viburnum blossoms?

My neighbor has a huge bush of them and I was able to clip a few stems to make some floral arrangements for the house.

You might remember last week I shared about Snowball blossoms in the post, Look what the wind blew in.

This time, I wanted to do something that was more traditional, dressy even, for the chest in my great room.


Vintage Biscuit Jar :: Easy flower arranging idea ::


The Snowball bush’s stems are not very orderly in nature and I was trying to figure out how I could arrange them in a compact, as opposed to floppy, manner.  So, I went scouting through the cabinets for a short wide vase of some sort when I discovered this one.  It looks like a biscuit jar to me.  When I was going through my mother’s house after she died I discovered it in the way-up cupboards in her kitchen.  The same place I found the vintage crocus pot.  Again, something I had never seen or used as I was growing up.  I almost didn’t bring it home because it isn’t perfect.  It has a chip or two in the foot.  But, then again, I’m not perfect, so why am I worrying about a lovely jar being perfect?  Especially since the chips really aren’t that noticeable and the jar looks like it is decorated in the Art Nuevo style.

Once I selected the perfect vessel for my Snowball blossoms I had to figure out how to arrange their flopping heads.  And then I remembered something I saw on Pinterest!     WOW!  Do I ever have an easy flower arranging tip for you!


I saw it on Pinterest :: Martha Stewart ::


I had pinned this tip to my DIY Household Tips Board.  But, of course it was Martha or one of her talented associates who originally shared this idea on the Martha Stewart website.

Now that I found the jar to use for my arrangement, it was time to try out the tip and see if it really worked.

One thing that I love about this easy flower arranging tip is that everyone has a roll of cellophane tape in the drawer.  So, it’s practically free.  And with my zero budget, that is a very good thing.  Talk about easy.  Oh my goodness.  How hard is it to stretch tape across a jar opening into the form of a grid?  Anyone can do it.  If you’ve been a reader here for a while, you’ll know that I like simple with extraordinary results.  And this is the best.  Don’t forget to add water to your container.  I filled up the jar before taping the grid.


I saw it on Pinterest :: Super easy flower arranging tips ::


My stems were pretty floppy.  Maybe I should have shown you with forty photos how I arranged them.  But, you’ll just have to imagine that I filled each of the openings in the grid so that the branches were supporting each other in the middle with some blossoms falling to the sides.  Many of the openings held several flower stems.  As the container filled with blossoms, I ended up resting some blossoms against each other to create the mounded look.


Super Easy Flower Arranging Tips -- Snowball Flower Arrangement ::


The arrangement really was quick to put together and lasted very well for a few days.  Until my cat decided that she liked the taste of the blossoms.  One morning I awoke to a big hole in the middle of the flowers.   I left the room to make a cup of tea and when I returned, she was back up on the cabinet with her nose in the blossoms, chomping away.  Yes…chomping…not nibbling.  You would have thought she had a mild taste of catnip the way she rolled around on the floor after she was obediently jumped down.  I guess as much as I enjoyed looking at them…she enjoyed tasting them.  Next year, I will remember that and put them out of her way when I am not around.


Easy Flower Arranging in a Vintage Container ::


I created a super simple vignette on the little chest in front of my French screen with this jar of Snowball blossoms, the lid from the jar was added to the vignette along with my chubby smiling cat I used in an earlier floral vignette.

The next time you gather flowers from the backyard and want to make an arrangement in something other than a standard vase, grab a roll of tape and voila’! you’ll have something magazine worthy in no time.  Who needs a florist?

This super easy flower arranging tip worked so well for me, I used it to create the small arrangements for the table here, too.


Have you used the tape trick for a floral frog?

What tip from Pinterest was successful for you?

  1. Just beautiful! Our snowball virbernums bloomed here down South about 6 weeks ago. They are one of my very favorites.. I love the grid trick using scotch tape. Love the vintage container. It could not be a more perfect arrangement.

    • Diane says

      We had a heavy rain the last day or so and our snowball bushes are looking pretty bedraggled. It was wonderful while they lasted!! And yours were 6 weeks ahead. Oh my…what a big time difference a ‘little’ warmer weather makes.
      Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by Mary Lise!

  2. JaneEllen says

    I love the jar you put your gorgeous flowers in. It’s so pretty, looks like it has embellishments on it that stand out. So glad for you to have something so lovely of your Moms. Your flowers are so pretty, I thought they were hydrangeas, obviously I don’t know much about flowers.
    I wish I’d thought about the frog tape trick when I brought in some lilacs from our bushes. It was first time the bushes had ever bloomed in 4 years so I was delighted. They didn’t last very long but I sure enjoyed them while they did. Will look forward to next years blooms now.
    I’ll have to look into viburnums to plant. Do they need a humid climate or dry? Our climate here in CO is very dry and our ground has so much alkali in it. I always enjoy your blog. Have a wonderful weekend. We can’t afford to do much either but on Monday we’ll go to State park about 7 1/2 miles from our house, there’s a small lake there so our dog can swim, little cold yet for me. Hopefully our daughter/family will join us for part of the day.
    Happy Days

    • Diane says

      Thanks JaneEllen! Yes…there is a bit of relief in the design…good eye!
      How exciting to have lilacs for the first time in FOUR years!!! That is a l-o-n-g wait!!
      You know, I don’t know about humidity for the Viburnum. I’ve lived mostly in Michigan, 11 years in NY, and now in PA, and they do well in each of these areas. But…there is more humidity here. I’m thinking that if a ‘good’ garden center in your area sells them they will do well. The key for any shrub is to make sure that it is well watered and fed from the day it is planted that first year. Too often shrubs fail because they aren’t properly planted and cared for and allowed to dry out at the beginning.
      How fun to go to a park with a lake! And so close to your house too. I’d be there all the time!
      Hope your holiday weekend is Extraordinary!!

    Great tip! Beautiful arrangement! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof

    • Diane says

      Thanks Jenna!!
      Hope you and yours have a fabulous holiday weekend!

  4. Gina says

    Great tip! Thanks for sharing. You came after me on the Love and Laundry party so thought I’d drop by. I’m glad I did! I love when people find ways of doing things cheaper. 🙂 I’d love for you to drop by my site as well. Have a great weekend!

    • Diane says

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind thoughts Gina!
      Best wishes for an extraordinary holiday weekend! 🙂

  5. I have a similarly shaped vintage jar but never thought to put flowers in it. We’ve had storms tonight; tomorrow I will go out and see what I can pick to put in mine, just for fun! Thanks for sharing, Diane!
    The tape trick is pretty standard for vases in the floral industry. I worked part time for a florist a number of years ago and we used this a lot. Be sure the edge of the container and the outside is very dry or the tape will come off with the weight of the flowers.

    • Diane says

      I’m thrilled that you were inspired Elaine!! That makes my day! Oh I do hope you have something lovely that wasn’t beaten up by the rains and wind. I love floral arranging and have thought it would be a fun job…I know it’s hard at the holidays…but it’s lovely to ‘create.’ And I had no idea it was an ‘official’ trick of the trade. I wish I’d known about it a long time ago. 😀
      Hope your holiday weekend is blessed!

  6. Pinky says

    I am a floral designer and this is what all florists do everyday:) One of the secrets of the trade. At least where I worked we did. It is exactly what is needed to support flowers and make arranging so much easier. Your arrangement is gorgeous, I love snowball viburnums. XO, Pinky

    • Diane says

      Oh Pinky…I wish I had known about this ‘secret’ a long time ago. I can’t tell you how many times I could have done something a bit more creative with that bit of assistance. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. 🙂 It makes my day!

      Wishing you an Extraordinary Memorial Weekend!

  7. Jenna says

    that’s hilarious, who knew cats liked to eat flowers! You were such a good sport about it!

    • Diane says

      Actually my cats like flowers and it can be a major problem for me. They love violas and pansies…which fortunately are edible…and will eat all the blossoms off those if I’m not careful. My Lily actually spent an overnight at the vets from ingesting Dutch Iris….that was not good. But, the cat that chomped on the snowballs really cracked me up. She didn’t nibble…she had a big mouthful!! 🙂

  8. Mel says

    Ohhh…then how fitting you had the smirking cat next to the arrangement…and the smirking cat IN the arrangement. LOL Shoulda got a snapshot of the kitty with a mouth full. Oh my…that musta been a moment for the kitty, getting caught with a full mouth.

    NEXT time I’m gifted with lillacs, I’m gonna do this one. I simply stuck my face in ’em for a good smell (no, I wasn’t chomping!) and stuffed ’em in the vase.
    And with that handy dandy trick….oh, the struggle for a vase to ‘work’ …..will be HISTORY! LOL

    Happy Friday!

    • Diane says

      Oh, why didn’t I think to grab the camera? Maybe because I couldn’t believe how she was chomping down like she knew she’d better ‘eat’ fast!
      I’m thrilled that this ‘trick’ will work for you, too. Sometimes the easiest things make our days extraordinary. I sure hope yours is today, Mel! [hugs]

  9. This is an amazing tip! I planted a snowball this spring, but won’t see any flowers until next year! Visiting from Chic on a Shoestring. Would love a visit or a follow back! Happy Weekend

    • Diane says

      Thank you Karen! Who knew?! 🙂
      Hope your holiday weekend is amazing!

  10. Kim says

    WOW!! I love this trick!! I am pinning this for sure!! The bowl you have them in is absolutely gorgeous! I am so inspired. Of course, I do not own anything like this…may have to hit the thrift store this weekend and poke around a bit! Enjoy the holiday!

    • Diane says

      I couldn’t believe how easy it made putting the arrangement together, Kim!! Have fun thrifting and making your own!
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving you warm remarks!
      Happy Memorial Day & Weekend!

  11. Your arrangement has a very elegant feel to it. I have a green and white ginger jar that belonged to my parents and am looking forward to putting white hydrangeas in it when the blooms come.

    • Diane says

      Oh…thanks sounds perfectly lovely!!
      Thank you for you kind remarks, Karen!

  12. Sally says

    Such pretty flowers and I adore your mom’s jar you used as a vase! Thanks so much for the grid idea too, that will be so helpful.

    Happy Memorial Day!

    • Diane says

      Thanks Sally! It really was amazingly helpful!
      You were so kind to drop by and leave your kind remarks. 🙂
      Wishing you an Extraordinary Memorial Day & weekend.

  13. That’s a good tip and they look great ! 🙂 How fast these bushes go to green. Both my lilac and now the snowball are almost done blooming…it’s just been over a week .

    • Diane says

      Thank you! Ours have done pretty well, Debra, considering the heavy rains and winds. I’ve noticed a few on my walk that are more protected that are looking terrific. I think it’s the temperatures that are there undoing. It’s nice to warm springs…not 80+ degrees. 😉
      Hope your weekend & Memorial Day are Extraordinary!

  14. {Melinda} What a fabulous idea! Why didn’t anyone come up with that ridiculously simple, but brilliant, idea a long time ago?! 🙂 The arrangement looks beautiful!! I adore fresh flowers.

    Visiting from Sharefest!

    • Diane says

      Haha! I learned that it’s a floral industry secret! And oh I wished I’d known about it a long time ago! LOL!
      Thanks for your kind words!
      Wishing you an Extraordinary Memorial Day!

  15. Beautiful! I love a good bunch of flowers. Are these in the hydrangea family? I just love this tip too. I’ve pinned it, but not tried it yet. I’m also glad someone else has a mischievous cat who loves flowers and plants! 😎 I’m visiting from It’s Overflowing.

    • Diane says

      Thank you Christy! No…Viburnum are a whole family unto themselves. Two great families of loveliness!
      Oh my cat. I love her, but she has gotten into some big time trouble, she’s something else!!
      Happy Memorial Day!

  16. Susan says

    This is an excellent idea! My Mom and I both have snowball bushes that are in bloom right now. I am going to use your tip today. Thanks so much for a wonderful idea.

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

    • Diane says

      Thanks Susan! Does that mean we should be something lovely on your blog, too?
      May your Memorial Day be blessed!

  17. I saw this tip also, but I haven’t had a chance to try it. You arrangement looks amazing! So glad it works and thank you for sharing!

    Stopping by from SITS!


    • Diane says

      Haha! How many times do we see something and not get around to doing it?! It’s the best tip, for me, in a long while.
      Thanks for your kind words, Pricilla!
      May your Memorial Day be blessed!

  18. That’s a great tip! I’m definitely going to have to use it. My son is getting older and I’m beginning to have a bit more time to think about “decor”. I’m definitely in need of help in that area. Of course, my newly turned teen continues to eat me out of house and home, so frugal tips are so helpful.

    • Diane says

      Oh I do hope you have fun making a lovely bouquet for yourself. It sounds like the perfect time to add a bit of beauty to your life. 😉
      Wishing you a blessed Memorial Day!

  19. THAT IS BRILLIANT!! I would never dream of taping to create squares!! I will definitely try this. Such a pretty blog you have here….so glad I found you through SITS girls!

    • Diane says

      And I never would have either, until I saw it on Pinterest!! LOL! Thank you for your kind and encouraging thoughts Kelly! Blessings for an Extraordinary week ahead!

  20. A florist friend of mine taught me that trick. It is a great way to keep an arrangement within the confines of any container, especially wide mouth ones. She did my nieces flowers for her wedding and all the table arrangements were done in the same manner. Great tutorial!
    Blessings from Still Woods Farmhouse

    • Diane says

      You were so lucky to have learned that trick! I wish I would have known it years ago….oh the pretty arrangements I missed. 😉 Thanks for the kind thoughts, Lynda and for stopping by.

  21. patty says

    Your arrangement does look gorgeous! thanks for the great tip. I will pin it for future use!

    • Diane says

      Aww….thanks Patty!!
      Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!

  22. Beautiful arrangement. Thanks for the tip.I have to try this!

    • Diane says

      Thank you Joselyn!!
      Have fun with your creation!
      May your day overflow with JOY!

  23. Beautiful! I love Snowball Viburnum and have one in my yard. However it bloomed and was gone by mid April here in Northern California. I was so busy with my mom’s 70 Th party, at that time, I never even got around to bringing any inside this year! 🙁 Your arrangement is wonderful! Just beautiful!

    • Diane says

      Awwww….that’s too bad, Karen. 🙁 And now you’re probably thinking you could have used it to decorate for the party. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind remarks.
      Hope your holiday is extraordinary!

    Great tip and reminder…you have so inspired me to clip some of my hydrangeas. I just purchased the perfect glass vase to do this…Thank you for t he inspiration and sharing at One More Time Events

    • Diane says

      Yay!! Nothing makes me happier than to know this little spot in the big net inspired you! Will we be seeing your bouquet on the blog?

  26. Sally says

    What a great idea! Visiting from “A Favorite Thing” @ MHC

  27. What a great tip! I’ll have to give that a try!

    • Diane says

      Oh, please do Rita Joy! You won’t believe the difference it makes! 🙂

  28. Judy says

    Beautiful snowball bloom and a fabulous vase.

    • Diane says

      That is such a nice thing to say, Judy! 🙂 Thank you!

  29. Kathy says

    How lovely, The grid works great with all types of flowers and esp. wonderful for tulips.
    I love your cache. First time visitor coming over from a party. I will be checking back.Kathy

    • Diane says

      Glad to know, Kathy! Tulips are a bear to arrange…thanks for the tip!
      Hope your week is Extraordinary!

  30. Sarah says

    Diane, this is a beautiful arrangement. Using the tape is a great tip. A floral designer shared this with me some years ago. There is a special tape that floral designers use that holds up better and is thinner.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Diane says

      It’s interesting you would mention a thinner tape…it occurred to me *after* I had finished the arrangement. Though I don’t think it matters when the stems are thin. Lucky you to have learned this years ago. 🙂

  31. Such a beautiful arrangement. Thank you for sharing such a great tip!

    • Diane says

      How nice of you to say that, Brandi! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave your lovely thoughts!

  32. Dawn says

    Darling idea, and it sure holds the flowers in the perfect spot:) Thanks for sharing at the Cabin’s BUDGET DECORATING PARTY. Would you mind adding me to your list please!

    • Diane says

      Thanks Dawn! No worries….I always do. 😉 Just a little behind tonight.

  33. Fabulous tip!! I have seen this done with plastic mesh and with chicken wire, but never with tape. Cool!!

    • Diane says

      This was sooo much easier than chicken wire, Krista.
      Hope your week is Extraordinary!!

  34. Amazing idea! So simple but it makes such a difference. You don’t mind of I steal it, do you?

    • Diane says

      Thanks Magali!
      Steal? It was on Pinterest so it’s not original? 🙂 Of course if you want to feature my post…please be sure to use just a portion and link it back to me.
      Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!

  35. Great flowers arrangement! I love viburnum
    Have a great week

    • Diane says

      Thanks Cristina!
      Those are the happiest of flowers. And perfect after all the bright colors of early spring.
      Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!

  36. Ho beautiful your arrangement is in your mom’s gorgeous jar! That’s thinking out of the box. Great tip for stems.

    • Diane says

      Awww…Linda….that is such a nice thing to say. Thank you! [hugs]

  37. Hi, wow I love the way the your floral arrangement came out using that tip with the tape. I will have to remember that for the next time. I saw it on Kathe with an E.

    • Diane says

      Oh I hope your remember, Julie! It really made all the difference.
      Thanks for stopping by with your kind remarks!

    What a great tip!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing – they look gorgeous!
    Visiting from Clean and Scentsible

    • Diane says

      Thank you Suzy!! I just wish I’d known about that tip a few years ago when I was making table arrangements. 😉

  39. Wow, what a cool idea! I haven’t seen it on Pinterest, and I know I wouldn’t have thought of it myself.

    • Diane says

      Then I am over-joyed that you found it here. And I am certain that you will get as excited as I did creating an arrangement. Such a little thing to make such a big difference. Blessings!

  40. WOW!!! Your arrangement turned out so very lovely!!! I can understand why your cat was attracted to it. I had to laugh when I read that your cat ATE your flowers. How funny…. However, such a lovely arrangement and your vase was beautiful and perfect. Enjoyed my visit. Hugs, Beverly

    • Diane says

      Thank you so much Beverly!! I know….I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her chomping on it…big mouthfuls of petals. 🙂
      Thank you for stopping by and leaving your encouraging words.
      Wishing you an extraordinary week!

  41. Great tip! Come share this post on Centerpiece Wednesday

  42. Sooo glad you reminded me about this tip. I just planted a snowball tree this year, can’t wait till it blooms next year.

    • Diane says

      How exciting! That’s the best part of gardening…the hope for the future.
      Hope your weekend is extraordinary!

  43. What a lovely arrangement. Your snowball viburnums are beautiful. I tried the tape thing on a planter recently and it worked great. I that little cat.

    • Diane says

      Thanks Beverly. 🙂 I’m glad to hear the ‘tape thing’ worked great for you too. Now all of us are going to look like we’re professional floral arrangers. Haha!

  44. It is a beautiful arrangement! This is actually the only way I can get flowers to look “right” in a vase 😉 Thank you for sharing this tip at the WEDNESDAYS ADORNED FROM ABOVE party !

    • Diane says

      Awww…thanks! Haha! I guess I’m behind the times! 🙂
      Best wishes for an Extraordinary weekend!

  45. Sandi says

    You know, Diane, I have seen this many times and I always forget to use it. Thanks for the reminder. It is so easy and your bouquet is really gorgeous! Thank you for sharing at my HOME.


    • Diane says

      Haha! I’m thrilled you needed that little nudge. I can only imagine the beauty you will create! 🙂
      Thank you for you kind words and always being the hostess with the mostess. 🙂

  46. Hi there! Yes, I’ve used this method before, and it really does help if you need to have some guidance as your arrange. As time went on, my new method became to arrange the flowers in my hand like a bouquet rather than in the vase. It was much easier for me. I arrange in my hand and then drop the bouquet into the vase and tweak as needed. This tape trick, though, is a real winner every time! Thank you for sharing it!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Diane says

      Thank you Alycia!!! Flower arranging is something that I enjoy and when I spied this little tip I had to give it a try. Isn’t it fun to have a number of tricks in the arsenal?
      It’s ‘nice’ (not) and hot here….hope you aren’t melting in your little corner of this table. 😉

  47. Jen says

    I haven’t done this but I did see this idea on Pinterest. So cool! I should go flower picking tomorrow so I can try it out!

  48. That arrangement looks wonderful. What a fantastic tip! Thanks for sharing on Silver Pennies Sundays. x

    • Diane says

      Awww…thanks! With an easy tip like that and such lovely blossoms…any one would have success.
      Hope your weekend is extraordinary!

    • Diane says

      Congratulations on FOUR years!! Wow! I just finished my first. I bow down to you my friend!
      Oh yes! I left a comment. 🙂
      p.s. I tried to leave a comment on the truly elegant tone on tone tablescape that you did this week…but all my clicking produced nothing. I just wanted you to know that I think it ranks as one of the best you have ever done. I love all the details…textures, patterns, and how very refreshing it feels. For me…it’s perfect.

  51. beautiful! i have pinned that image too… such a great tip! 🙂

    • Diane says

      I guess it’s been around for awhile…who knew? 🙂

  52. I had some flowers delivered awhile back and when they all died I saw they had done the same thing and I said….OH that is how they do it! Such a great tip! Featuring later today.

    • Diane says

      Someone commented that this is an old florist trick. If that is so….they sure have done a great job keeping it a secret. 😉 Thank you Pinterest for helping spill the beans! 🙂
      Thanks for your thoughtful remarks, Kristin!

  53. Great tip! Beautiful arrangement…I love the snowball blooms. I have never been able to get one (Snowball bush) to grow unfortunately! Thanks for sharing at the Rock ‘N Share! Hope to see you again soon! Blessings, D@TheShadyPorch

    • Diane says

      Thanks D! I’m so sorry you haven’t had success with Snowball bushes. Sometimes they just don’t like their spot. I had an Azalea that wouldn’t bloom…so I moved it and threatened it. Every year thereafter it bloomed like crazy. It’s just an idea. After all…a gal needs to have snowball blossoms…yes?

  54. Diane-this idea is genius and one I will be copying for sure!

    • Diane says

      So easy, Susan! You will wish you’d known sooner. 🙂
      Hope all is well at the farm! Sending blessings your way!

  55. oh what have I done??!!! You are linking back to all these lovely parties, but not to . It’s quite possibly oversight. … Anyhow, I LOVE the flower arrangement. That tape idea, I must try it. Because your vase sure looks fabulous!! Thanks for linking it up with us. A new party will open tomorrow and we’d love you to join in… And remember… please do link back to our party too! Thank you! 🙂

    • Diane says

      No way!!! I’m going to go and check right now.
      Rose, you know I am faithful to always link up….I am so sorry. 🙁

  56. Very pretty.

  57. Beth says

    Your arrangement looks great! My cat always gets into flower arrangements. I’ve taken to putting them up high, or behind closed doors!

    • Diane says

      If I put them on the kitchen counter I’m okay…anywhere else…the cats think the flowers are fair game! Haha!!
      Thanks Beth!!

  58. I too love those flowers and the stems are weak compared to the top heavy blossoms. Love the grid method, I must remember that. Love that your kitty found them to be tasty! LOL. Thanks for joining Diann and I at TTF this week.


    • Diane says

      Oh Linda….thank you !!
      It works so well with those floppy stems.

  59. Becky says

    What a great idea. I would love to grow those here in FL. They are beautiful and I would love to have a bowl full of them on my table right now!

    • Diane says

      Thank you Becky!! Oh I hope you find a bush to plant. They are pure loveliness when in bloom!

  60. Carol says

    It is just beautiful and such a clever way to manage those floppy flowers! My cat chomps my African Violet flowers. She doesn’t eat them; she just bites them off.

    • Diane says

      Oh Carol….I bet that’s frustrating. I hope she doesn’t stick her teeth in the leaves too. I’ve had a few plants ruined by those feline fangs. 😉
      Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by!

  61. Karen says

    What a fantastic idea!!! I am definitely going to use this for my Hydrangea clippings. Totally one of those “why didn’t I think of that”! But thank you for sharing, because I didn’t see this on Pinterest!

    • Diane says

      I love Hydrangeas! Have fun arranging them, Karen. Isn’t it good that our “friends” keep us in the know? Ha! Have a great day!

  62. Nice Tips !! Beautiful arrangement.
