I love having fresh flowers in our home and my favorite source is Grocery Store flowers. They are so plentiful and affordable!
I cannot even remember the last time I ordered flowers from a florist. I am a do-it-yourselfer and love making my own flower arrangements. As much as I love going to the Los Angeles Flower Mart, lately, I have become obsessed with using Grocery Store flowers.
I made this flower arrangement this week with flowers from Trader Joe’s.
As we are all spending more time at home, I think fresh flowers are a really great addition. Grocery store flowers are easy to access, inexpensive, and quite plentiful.
I don’t spend a lot of time arranging flowers. I have the same routine I go through every time and it’s very straight forward. I am guessing that it took me about twenty minutes to arrange these flowers.
My daughter in law walked past this and said she thought it looked like a $250 arrangement.
I think I spent $38.00.
Today I am joining fifteen bloggers as we are all sharing our favorite arrangements we have made with grocery store flowers. Be sure to scroll down to see their gorgeous arrangements.
I love arranging flowers with different kinds of vases. Over the years I have collected a large variety of containers to use in my flower arrangements. My favorite vases these days are my vintage crocks! I love these and wrote a blog post about my collection of vintage crocks and also how to arrange flowers in vintage crocks.
Here are all of the flowers I used to make this arrangement. I bought two mixed bouquets and three bunches of eucalyptus greens at Trader Joes
I selected these flowers because I loved the colors. But I picked the eucalyptus first because I love it so much. It wasn’t hard to pick the flowers because I just needed to make sure the flowers looked okay with my eucalyptus. (Somehow I think that is likely the wrong way to pick flowers. Oh well.)
The first step to arranging flowers is taking them out of their packaging and cutting the stems to the desired length.
I always start my arrangements with the greenery. My goal with the eucalyptus was to create a grid with the stems that would help hold the flowers upright. Usually, I use floral oasis for support, but unfortunately, I was out of it.
You can see below how I started adding the greenery.
For this arrangement, I chose to use a lot of greenery, so this was how it looked before I started adding flowers.
I always start with my “statement” flower. I added the protea flowers first.
Next, I added the roses.
As I filled in the remaining flowers, I added them and just walked around my arrangement. I just kept filing in with more flowers until they were all gone!
I even cut some hydrangeas from my garden. I love how they look in these arrangements.
When I was done, I took the vase (it was heavy) outside so I could take some photographs.
I love the larger size arrangement and the impact this makes on our back patio. I love that it only took me twenty minutes to create!
