If you’re looking for a quick and easy floral arrangement idea, it doesn’t get any simpler than this.

This video tutorial from Eddie Zaratsian Lifestyle and Design will show you how to create a stunning tiered flower arrangement with creativity, a few flowers, and less than 10 minutes of your time.

It’s an idea I like and have personally used at home many times when entertaining. I have a feeling that you’re going to love it, too! Watch and let me know if you agree.

Awesome, right? I knew you’d like it! The beauty of this type of flower arrangement is that the concept can be adapted and used throughout the year.

The arrangement created in the video is in a fall motif. But you could substitute colorful Christmas ornaments or pine cones for the persimmons, holiday greens for the preserved leaves, and use assorted white mums for the holidays.

For Easter, you could add colorful easter grass and plastic eggs. Anyway, you get the idea.

What you choose to use is only limited by your imagination. Another advantage to using some of the permanent materials is that they can be stored and used again.

Where to Look for What You Need

If you don’t already have a dessert stand, you can find 3-tier stands online for less than ten dollars or tutorials showing you how to make your own for less than five dollars. You can also stack footed cake plates to achieve a similar look.

A trip to your local dollar store will uncover a treasure trove of items you can use. You’ll find something for every season and holiday.

And you won’t have to spend much money on a container or the materials you use.

The flowers used, in this case, mums, can be purchased from any floral outlet, but if you are looking for more unusual flowers, your local florist will likely have a better selection.

The mums in this cut-flower centerpiece will only last a short time without a water source, but that’s okay. You want them to be their best when your guests are present. If they start to fade, you can simply remove them or replace them with fresh ones.

You could also use silk flowers in place of fresh flowers. You can find a terrific selection at sites like NearlyNatural, or at craft websites like Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

These sites carry higher-quality faux flowers, but a dollar store may have just what you’re looking for.

The preserved foliage used in the video is from Knud Neilsen, considered the gold standard by professional florists, but there are other choices.

You can find Knud Neilsen preserved foliages, and others on Amazon.

You can also find suitable foliages at Hobby Lobby, or drop by your local florist.

To Sum It Up

Creating beautiful floral arrangements doesn’t have to be difficult. With a container, a few simple flowers, a little creativity, and about ten minutes of your time, you can create stunning displays guaranteed to impress everyone who sees them.

The key to success is knowing where to begin. Start by picking out the base foliages that you want to arrange together. Then choose the decor objects (fruit, ornaments, pine cones, etc.) you’d like to use. Finally, choose the flowers you would like to include.

Once you know what you’re doing, it’s easy to move forward. Just follow the steps shown in the video, and you’ll be on your way to creating gorgeous bouquets for your home in no time!
