Creating Flower Arrangements for your Home – with Flowers from Trader Joes

Now that I have a new flower arranging room I am so motivated to arrange flowers! I thought it might be fun to share once a month how I arrange flowers found at your local grocery store. Today I am using flowers that I purchased at Trader Jose.

I went to my local Trader Joes this week and checked out their flower inventory.


I had hoped to find an assortment of hydrangeas or white flowers, but they did not have anything that I originally had in mind.


Since it was the first week in November I decided to create fall arrangements. My budget was $15 for two arrangements. Here is what I ended up buying.


Whenever I buy flowers I bring them home and immediately put them in fresh cold water.


Then I remove all of the plastic and rubber bands and clip the ends of all of the stems. This allows for fresh water to travel up the stem. Next, I picked a vase. I have a pretty large inventory in our basement but I chose to use a recently purchased antique jar I picked up at my friend’s warehouse @vintagejunktionla.

The first step to arranging flowers is adding the greenery to the vase. I just love silver dollar eucalyptus.


Then I started adding the filler flowers.


Next came the sunflowers.


I added a few shorter branches of eucalyptus and found a great spot for the vase in my kitchen.


Next, I arranged another vase using the same flowers and the small pumpkin vines. I used the exact same process as described above.


And the arrangement looks great on our family room table.


Every few days I change the water in the vase to extend the life of the flowers.

Next time you are at your local grocery store pick up a few bunches of fresh flowers. There is nothing better than having fresh flower arrangements in your home!
