10 Favorite Flower Arrangements

When I look back on my years of home ownership and apartment renting, I realize that there is one decorating staple that’s remained consistent in my life. Flowers. Pink, purple, yellow … it doesn’t matter what color. Having flower arrangements in the home is a sure way to perk up a room and lift the spirits. Today I’m sharing 10 of my favorite arrangements with you!

Bouquet of Cone flowers and Black Eyed SusansMy absolute, all-time favorite bouquets are created from flowers in the garden. There’s something so gratifying about stepping outside to gather a beautiful bouquet of garden flowers. This country style arrangement consists of Cone Flowers and Black Eyed Susans tucked inside a favorite ironstone pitcher.

 

Pink and White Tulips Create Spring TablescapePink tulips drooping softly create a pretty spring focal point on my farmhouse dining table. I wish tulips lasted longer, both indoors and out.

 

Lilacs and pansies signal the coming of springLilacs signal the coming of spring and I can’t wait for the lilac bushes to bloom and release their amazing scent into the garden. I love to open the windows and let the scent of lilacs waft inside. It’s fun to cut a big bunch and place them in a large enamel pot, without arranging them. Let them look a little wild!

 

Simple flower arrangement for those who feel they can't arrange bouquetsIf you’re not comfortable arranging store bought or garden flowers, simply tuck a single stem rose into a vintage bottle all by itself. Wrap a ribbon or baker’s twine around the neck of the bottle for added embellishment.

 

Hyacinth in a garden pot wrapped with a book pageAnother option for those who aren’t comfortable arranging flowers is to leave a potted flower in its plastic pot, and simply decorate the pot to spruce it up a bit. I left this hyacinth in its original plastic container but wrapped a book page around it and tied it in place with a piece of twine. If the pot is large, you’ll need to use 2 book pages to cover the entire pot. You could also wrap a piece of fabric around the garden pot, too.

 

Colorful store bought flowers look charming in mason jarsInexpensive flowers from the grocery store have cottage charm when tucked into mason jars. I love the cheery colors of this floral mix and grouped 3 arrangements onto a single white platter.

 

Sunflowers arranged in wine bottlesOn occasion, our local grocery store has fabulous stems of sunflowers. I love tucking a single stem into a wine bottle. I think the green and yellow look so pretty together!  At $1 apiece, they make a thrifty and pretty statement.

 

Trio of African Violets makes simple centerpieceYou can find African violets at a good price too! Aren’t they cute lined up on the dining table? I added a vintage hankie under each one to create greater visual impact. I also placed the violets in terra cotta pots that I white washed.

 

Pink Gerbera Daisies always make a pretty centerpiecePink Gerbera Daisies are one of my favorite flowers! You can grow them in your garden or purchase them in the store. I love their happy faces!

 

Wildflower BouquetFinally, my heart always sings when I see a haphazard bouquet of wildflowers. These were picked from alongside a country road. I didn’t arrange these at all! I simply tucked them into an enamelware pitcher right after picking them.

  1. They’re all beautiful!! I buy a fresh bunch every week.

  2. I miss fresh flowers! Thank you for the gorgeous photos – unfortunately, until Max gets older, fresh flowers are impossible here!

    Looking forward to seeing them growing outside though 🙂

  3. Hi Jennifer,
    I love fresh flowers and green plants. As soon as I saw the African Violets sitting on your dining table I knew you should pick some up for myself today. Thanks for the inspiration. Just a little bit of spring for my table.

    Such beautiful photos, the flowers against your white background are spectacular. My husband “buys flowers for me ” every week. Now before you go all gooey….I use his CC to buy groceries every week and pick up flowers too. When he opens trunk to unload groceries ( yes he does do that) he always says ” what flowers did I buy you this week?” In fact I am off to grocery store now…I wonder what flowers he will buy today?

  5. Those Pink Gerbers make my heart swoon! You are so gifted! Thanks for sharing with us!

  9. They are ALL so pretty! I love how you tore paper and placed it around the flower pot!
