With Mother’s Day only a few days away, I thought I would share some simple, DIY floral arrangements that you can create with readily available flowers and containers you probably already have.
The first is an arrangement I made using the left over flowers from last week’s floral crown post and a teacup and saucer. You could easily use roses and greenery from your garden to create this, or flowers from the grocery store. Start by creating a base with your greenery, in this case ivy, then cut the stems of your flowers really short so they are resting on top of the water.
The next arrangement makes a big statement with very little effort. I picked up a bouquet of viburnum from Whole Foods and used this simple, but pretty vase from H & M. These would look cool in an apothecary jar as well. I love looking for vases like this at thrift stores and flea markets.
I made these vases for a recent event and have used them over and over. They are made from Starbucks Frappuccino bottles, labels removed and then spray painted gold on the bottom. Here I’ve just filled them with spray roses from my garden, but they look good with so many different types of flowers.
Now have a great weekend and go make a floral arrangement for a very deserving mom!
