Spring is coming! The season of new growth, longer days, and visiting friends. Family gatherings, holiday parties, and girls nights are on the horizon. It’s no secret that we are a fan of beautiful florals, evident in all of our floral wallpaper designs! There’s something about flowers that just brighten up a day, adding so much life to an otherwise bland room.
We are in the dead of winter here in Canada, where seeing gorgeous blooms and bouquets just aren’t as common. With freezing temperatures dipping as low as -40°C some weeks, going outside can quite literally be painful. Why do we live here again?
We wanted to share how you can create a beautiful floral bouquet easily, without the hassle or expense of visiting a specialty flower store. Perfect as a hostess gift or an addition to any holiday party, these DIY floral arrangements are also great if you, like us, just want to add some life and color to your coffee table! Explore our vibrant collection of floral wallpaper designs to complement your DIY floral arrangements.
So, we aimed to bring some summer into our homes with a budget-friendly farmers market bouquet. We found this bouquet at our local Costco, where there are many options to choose from. The process is simple: take all the stems and blooms, separate them, and find a vase (even a larger mason jar works). Find the perfect vase to showcase your farmers market bouquet.
After separating your stems and greenery, choose one large focal flower. Our bouquet had a hydrangea, but unfortunately, it wilted by the evening as it wasn’t fully submerged in water. Check out this flower care guide for tips on keeping your blooms fresh longer
Next, find some smaller stems that won’t be the centerpiece but will add texture, dimension, and some color.
Don't forget the greenery! Most bouquets come with plenty of filler, so you have your pick of which to use.
From there, have fun arranging. Play around with the heights, colors, and textures of the flowers. Feel free to add, remove, or switch around until you’re satisfied with the result.
Once you’re happy with it, you have your gorgeous hostess gift, looking much better than the cellophane-wrapped version from the store. It's a fun little afternoon project with more intention behind it.
We hope you are having a beautiful winter. We know it can be long and hard for many. Maybe try this project out, and discover what a great mood booster creating your own DIY floral arrangements can be! Don't hesitate to contact us for custom decor advice tailored to your style.
