I wanted a flower bouquet to help bring spring indoors, but my peonies have already bloomed and none of the other flower are ready to be cut. To make the bouquet I went to my local Wegman’s grocery store to see what I could find. My criteria included flowers that looked like they came from a meadow and needed to be twenty dollars or under.
Take a look at what I found for nineteen dollars!
I purchased one bunch of miniature carnations for seven dollars, tulips for six and filler (do not know the name of it) also for six.
I chose this vase to create interest by using the juxtaposition of the formal vase with the informal bouquet.
The vase came with insert to hold water. Cool!
I think carnations get a bad rap. They are so pretty and smell wonderful!
I would add some flowers step back and make an adjustment or add something more.
I repeated this process until I was satisfied with the results.
The finished bouquet!
Not bad for nineteen dollars!
Below are a few more examples I created from store bought flowers.
