Fresh flowers brighten up any space, don’t you think? I find it very chic to have a lovely flower arrangement in any room in the house. It just adds to the comfort and beauty of a room. But really nice flower arrangements can be quite expensive. So, I’ve decided to teach myself the art of floral arranging. I’ve learned a few things. Here’s how to make a lovely winter bouquet with grocery store flowers.
First of all, a vase can totally dictate the shape of the arrangement. Or the “vessel” for you sophisticated folks. So choose it wisely. If you know that you want your arrangement to be more upright, choose one with a smaller opening. If you want one the is more rounded, a larger opening. It really is that simple.
At the grocery store, you can usually get flowers for a pretty good price. I got some daisies, some red berries and some greenery for around $10. Total. Pretty good, huh?
So, definitely start with the shortest items first, the ones you want closest to the edge of the vase. For me, that was the daisies. I arranged them in my hand first to see how it would turn out. Then placed them in the vase.
My next tallest flowers I placed in between the daisies. It gives it some height and adds some green.
Lastly, I inserted the red berries in the middle. The pop of red really makes the whole arrangement and the berry branches are the essence of winter. You cold always add some more clippings from your yard, especially if you have some evergreens. Those would look lovely in this arrangement.
