Easy $20 Flower Arrangement

flowerbouquetA great pick-me-up during this dreary winter weather is a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers for you home. Here’s an easy way to arrange them. The best part is I only spent $20 at the grocery store. Depending on your store, or the time of year, you could probably get by with spending even less.

Start with choosing a main flower or two that you like. Next choose a filler. Then see if they have something that has interesting texture or maybe something that will cascade or drape over the vase.

Place a packet of plant food that came with the flowers and fill your vase about 1/3 of the way. Next tape the vase leaving 1/2 – 1 inch holes to help the flowers stay in place.
