I always love the look of fresh flowers around the house. When I do buy them, I never do anything other than sticking them straight in a vase. That's where my knowledge of flower arranging ends. I decided to change that and I am going to teach myself (and thus you) how to make some super simple arrangements with just grocery store-bought bouquets.
For this arrangement, I used a simple milk glass flower-pot I had on hand at home. Anything square and opaque would work.
Using a wet foam flower block (not the same as one for artificial flowers), I cut it in half, let it soak in a bowl of cold water until fully absorbed and then pressed it into the pot.The flowers I chose were two different shades of the same variety.I started by picking off all the leaves and cutting the stems to about 2 inches from the bloom.
Then you begin pressing the stems into the foam, forming one row all around and then the second row. Lastly, fill in the middle with 2 or more stems to fill in any gaps. I decided to go with every other one a different shade. Super simple and oh so beautiful. In total, 2 bouquets from the grocery store and a free vase. This arrangement cost around $10.
Every time I look at it, I smile. 🙂
