One bouquet, two ways
After my flower post the other day I was inspired to do some arranging. I actually just happened to go to the grocery store and they had some mother’s day specials and I picked up these two bouquets for $10 each. Based on the flowers inside, this was a really good price. (They have sunflowers, wax flowers, snapdragons, statice and some greens.)
I was giving one of these away as a gift, so I had a smaller vase for that. Here is how I built the arrangement:
And for the one I was keeping I had a bigger container. I had to add some hosta leaves from my garden and I also added about 5 mini callas that are growing out front as well. But otherwise all of the flowers are the same.
One of my biggest tips with flowers is that you don’t have to use EVERY flower in the bouquet. If you have leftovers, just put them in smaller containers and enjoy them around your house.
Don’t you just LOVE these cups? Iris got them for me when she went to Portland and I think they look adorable with some flowers in them. They seriously make me smile! Thank you, Iris!!
I hope to do more arranging soon. Can’t wait to share! :)
