For Easter I wanted to bring my mother-in-law a spring bouquet for her table. This one is a little out of my comfort zone because I prefer for my flowers to be tight and not so “wild flowery” looking, but I was happy with the way this turned out.
I got all of my flowers at Whole Foods during their 2 bunches for $10 sale. I was so excited to see the purple delphinium. It has such a spring and summer feel with the green!
To start the arrangement, take the delphinium (or any other green) and place it around the container as your filler. Next, fill in with the lisianthus (a rose is a good substitute if this isn’t available). Y’all. It’s gorgeous and there are so many little off shoots that add texture and continue to bloom. They were a steal during this sale because wholesale they typically run $1.25 a stem!
I next added in all of my white flowers…mainly tulips! Here’s a tip – tulips continue to grow after they are cut, so if you just stick them with a straight pin, they will use all of their energy fixing the hole, so they won’t continue to grow!
I then finished off with more delphinium. Their sprigs look so great in the bouquet and add a lot of additional dimension.
I have a video below for a visual of how I put this together.
When you’re at the store, don’t be afraid to try several different flowers you love together! I always like to have some greenery and some show stopper flowers, like the lisianthus or a rose that will take up some vase space and have a visual impact. Then fill in with other flowers you love!
