I know a lot of you love entertaining family and friends. If you’re looking for simple and budget-friendly ways to decorate with flowers, you’re in luck!
This short video clip will give you a few simple ideas to get you started… ideas that will give you a lot of bang for your buck when it comes to decorating with flowers.
Simple Vases For Flower Arrangements
There are lots of things around our homes that make perfect containers for floral arrangements.
Start by rounding up things around your house that can hold water. As long as they don’t leak, they’ll work.
As you’ll see, it’s not too hard to come up with an interesting container or two to use as a vase for floral arrangements.
Keep in mind that the containers you use don’t have to match, either.
Mismatched items look great when they are grouped together. You can tie them together by using one or two similar flower varieties or colors.
If you want to make a larger arrangement, old watering cans, ceramic pitchers, kettles and tea pots are great containers for that purpose and will add an element of surprise and a pop of color to any space.
Soda bottles, wine bottles, mason jars, colored glass bottles, or any type of simple glass vases are great for a more casual affair. Try clustering them on a coffee table, dining table, kitchen counter, or buffet cabinet with flowers in each. Highlight them with a few votive candles.
Once you know what container types you have to work with, the rest is easy. Just add flowers!
Remember, floral arrangements don’t have to be perfect. So don’t overthink it.
Just be creative and have some fun!
