WHY

Claire and I wanted to get back into the Task 24 project and thought we'd start off with something relatively easy to get us re-motivated. Plus, who doesn't love fresh flowers in their space? After this task, I will definitely be having fresh flowers in my apartment regularly.

 

HOW

Curiosity's office is right next to an enormous Mariano's. A small group of us go there practically every day for lunch. The ground floor has a coffee shop and an enormous floral department. If I'm ever feeling stressed, I like to pop in and grab a coffee and look at all of the flowers.

For this task, I found white hydrangeas (the big white flowers), white lisianthus (these look like bougie roses), and green hypericum coco (the lil' green berries) to go along with my new white bedding.

I watched several YouTube videos on arranging flowers and read some words of advice from the queen, Martha Stewart. I learned that it's good to arrange odd numbers of flowers and to be sure to trim the ends of the stems before arranging.

 

CHALLENGE

I truly thought I would get home with my flowers, pop them in a vase, and call it a day.

Arranging flowers is hard AF. It's difficult to get a balance between the height of the flowers while still maintaining a uniform bouquet shape.I must have clipped the ends of the stems nearly 100 times to get the right shape.
