Make This: Celebrate any day with this Bouquet

diy-any-time-bouquet

Every time I turn around, it feels like another holiday is right around the corner (or a birthday, housewarming, baby shower, random party, etc). I love celebrating all of these things, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with a thoughtful gift that any recipient will be happy about. So what’s a girl to do? Make a bouquet of fresh flowers, of course. And I have a simple recipe for making your own to celebrate any occasion.

Here are the flowers you’ll need: 2 bells of Ireland // 2 purple parrot tulips // 2 stems of white stock// 2 green bouvardia (or 2 small hydrangea clusters) // 3 stems of dusty miller

Other supplies you’ll need: scissors // brown kraft paper // raffia or twine

How-To: I made this bouquet the same way I made this easy spring bouquet. So you can check out the directions and step by step photos here if you need ’em. *If that method isn’t working for you, follow this method instead – the process is a little different, but the results are the same in the end. Next, add kraft paper and tie it off with raffia. Cut the stems so they are all the same length and store in a vase with 2-3 inches of water until you are headed out the door to deliver these beauties.

I LOVE this! I love this rustic kind of style of bouquet. And better still, it suits my compositae allergy!

Here Now Brown Cow

Awesome. Glad to hear that – I hadn’t thought about it being a allergy-friendly bouquet! Added bonus, for sure.

I meant to take a flower arranging workshop last weekend – but alas, I missed it. It seems like such a great skill to have. Thanks so much for sharing how to put this bouquet together!

I love how you wrapped this bouquet, Britt! Awesome.

Thanks Kel. I gave this to my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day and she loved it. Thought wrapping it would make it easier until she could get it into a vase.

Yes, that little pop of purple made all the difference, I think.

[…] resist throwing a flower DIY in here for good measure. I made this bouquet just like this one, only I used decorative wrapping paper, instead of kraft paper. The wrapping paper is from Rifle, […]
