Hey friends! I have a really fun post for today. We are making our homes so very pretty using grocery store flower arrangements! I am sharing my flower arrangement ideas with some oof my favorite bloggers! You can check them out at the end of the post, they all have amazing ideas too!
I love adding flowers to my home, the problem is, we don’t have any flower shops near us. Honestly we don’t even have any grocery stores near us that cary flowers….that is how far out of the city we live. But, when I get to the city, I love to pick up a couple bouquets of flowers at the grocery store to have in my home. Getting them home in one piece when its a long, long drive is another story, but we wont talk about that right now haha.
I think there is a stigma about getting flowers from the grocery store, but to me, flowers are flowers, and they brighten my day no matter where they came from. Today I want to share how I use flowers from the grocery store to brighten my home and how to do it affordably, and a couple secrets to get a big impact for less.
While I love fresh flowers in my home, I really really love greenery, eucalyptus, and all that good stuff. This is my secret to getting super affordable flower arrangement. I like to buy myself a bouquet of greenery, specifically if it has eucalyptus, but I am pretty happy with any kind of collection. This stuff is pretty cheap because its considered a filler.
I love starting with this, and adding a small amount of fresh flowers to the greenery giving you that bang without spending your money on a ton of pricey flowers.
I like to start by breaking apart my bouquet and seeing how many pieces of each kind I have. For this flower arrangement, I bought 4 green/white hydrangeas, and some simple white flowers to go with our greenery.
Once they are broken apart, I grab my preferred vase, which I decided to use a large Ikea pitcher, which is one of my favorite vases to use for flower arrangements.
I start by adding my largest greenery, which for this was the Eucalyptus. I swear I could use Eucalyptus all year long! I then add my other greenery, rotating it around the vase. I cut mine to the height I like. I like some of the greenery to be taller to balance the lower pieces.
Here you can see I have added my greenery, creating a bit of a round shape by cutting some lower and leaving some taller. I like to put in all my greenery first when I am making an affordable flower arrangement because I am using less flowers and want to add those at the end when they have some support from the greenery.
I like to choose tall slender flower stalks as well as some lush round flowers like Hydrangeas. The combination of different textures and shapes make the flower arrangements look so expensive and interesting.
I like to add in the last few pieces and then adjust and trim the stems as needed.
I love the look of the assorted greenery with the flowers.
I like to keep the more slender pieces a bit taller to add some interest to the arrangement. I like my flower arrangements a bit wild.
I literally only bought 4 Hydrangeas, and one small bunch of delicate white flowers.
This flower arrangement is one of my favorites and I love having a pop of brightness in my home.
Just grabbing a simple bouquet of flowers from the grocery store can brighten your home, and it wont drain your pocketbook.
