When it comes to home decor, it is our belief that a really simple (and affordable) way to make your house feel warm and inviting is to put some fresh flowers throughout it. Not only are they pretty to look at, but the scent of roses, lilacs and even magnolias are an effective way to incorporate aromatherapy into your house as well.
And while you could call a local florist to have a few professional arrangements delivered to your home, it is our belief that there are some flower arrangements that you can actually do yourself; ones that will save you a significant amount of money.
So, if you’d like to do a bit of flower decorating over the next couple of days, we’ve enclosed five of our favor DIY flower arrangement ideas that are sure to dress up your home any time of the year.
A crystal vase with tulips or roses. There are some flowers that are so pretty that can go from the store straight to a vase. Tulips and roses are two of them. If you have a really nice crystal vase, just make sure to remove the leaves and the roses’ thorns and simply place them inside of it. It’s a nice arrangement for your living room or master bedroom.
Glass bowls, a flower and a candle. If you want an arrangement that takes on a bit of a subtle approach, consider cutting of the stem of a violet or gardenia and placing it inside of a glass bowl that is filled halfway with water. If you add a single floating candle along with it, you’ll have a nice display for your study or home office.
A “kitchen citrus” arrangement. Do you want to try a bit of a unique approach to the centerpiece on your kitchen table, especially if you are planning to entertain guests? If so, a really memorable arrangement consists of getting one of your glass pitchers and aligning them with slices of lemon, lime and oranges for a pop of color. Then place inside of the pitcher some Gerber daisies, white pomanders or even some zinnias. It will be a conversation piece among your guests, for sure.
Three tiny mason jars and some peonies. Are you looking for an arrangement to put on a bookshelf, a nightstand or perhaps even your child’s nursery? If so, why not take three small mason jars, cut the stems of three peonies to the size where they will fit and place on into each jar? You can have the peonies all be one color or showcase a variety. Just make sure to place the jars in close together. It’s a really sweet and simple kind of arrangement.
Flowers in tin cans. Flowers and gifts often go hand in hand, so if you’re hosting an event at your home and you’d like to send people away with a bit of a token from the event, put a few carnations and baby’s breath inside of some tin cans that are used for tea bags. It’s cute, it’s easy and people can take the tins home with them to do a bit of floral arranging of their own.
