Grocery Store Flowers

Remember these flowers that I got at Trader Joe’s?
Well, I brought them home and decided that I would practice my floral arranging skills. I have never taken an official class on floral arrangements, but have taken several different little workshops. I by no means know exactly what I am doing, but I do love to experiment and try my hand at it. And when you use the Grocery store flowers, you are not out a lot of money if the arrangement does not turn out just how you thought it would! :)
I started with a small square vase and added the floral tape in a crisscross pattern across the top like this:
Then I just started putting flowers in the corner. I decided that I wanted this corner to be the focal point of the arrangement.
Next, I just started filling in the rest of the arrangement, using the lilies for the top point and the orchids in the middle.
So how did I do?
So for $5.99 I was able to bring a bit of sunshine into my home on a very dreary, inversion, winter day! Score!
Do any of you have something that you like to try your hand at?
I love that I can practice this and it brings a touch of spring to my house.
This is a great way to make an inexpensive gift for someone who might need a little cheering up, or just because, or a birthday, or an anniversary!
So does anyone out there want to go out and buy some grocery store flowers and try their hand at arranging? If you do, I would love to hear about it.
