Enhancing Store Bought Flowers ll Beauteeful Living

I feel like I’ve been living in a flower shop for the past week and a half. If you’ve been following Beauteeful Living on Instagram, you probably notice that over half of my posts are floral related. I cannot help it! I….LOVE….flowers.

When my kids had their first recital (link here), I knew that flowers will be scattered throughout our home for the next week. Oh…I was a happy girl. Today, I’d like to share easy ways of “Enhancing Store Bought Flowers.”

Here are the bouquets our daughters received:

1) Yellow Rose Bouquet

Since the rose bouquet only came with the roses, I added clippings from the shrubs in our garden for pops of green leaves. These were long stemmed roses that I cut short to fit in a small round vase. A pretty ribbon wrapped around the vase completes the look I was after.

2) Orange Rose Bouquet

With the orange roses, I decided to pair them up with the peonies from our garden. Who says peonies and roses can’t co-exisit? 🙂 I love the contrast of the pink and orange blooms. Look how fluffy!

3) Fuchsia Rose Tropical Mix

I didn’t have to do much with this pretty arrangement. All I did was clip the ends to allow better water absorption. Instead of placing the bouquet in a clear vase, I decided to place it in a blue pitcher. The pitcher was the perfect height for this bouquet.

4) Hydrangea and Chrysanthemum Bouquet

For the hydrangea and chrysanthemum bouquet mix, I decided to place it in a short, square-shaped vase. At the bottom, I added a leaf from our Hosta plant. It adds an extra touch of “tropical” to this look.

As you can see, simple touches are all you need to “enhance store bought flowers.”
