Market Flower Makeover

2 Materials
25 Minutes

A twist on arranging grocery store flowers. First, I've already elevated the name to Market Flowers, doesn't that sound better?

Here are my flowers.

Step 1.

Unwrap the flowers from the paper

Step 2. Cut the stems.

This is a good practice so they have a fresh cut to soak up water.

Below is a straight cut, all the same length.

With the bottoms cut

Step 3. To enhance the look, lay them out so the bottoms are even.

Then cut them in at least 3 different lengths.

Now with 3 different cut lengths

Step 4. I went in the yard and I snipped a branch from a cherry tree, a few pieces of some shrub that looks like boxwood, and a little Rose of Sharon. Adding the branches and twigs, give it some added dimension and interest. It elevated the look and didn't cost a thing!

Picked from my yard to add

Different vase = Different Look

Step 5. I cut a few pieces of fern I have inside and tucked it into a vase to change up the look even more.

With fern branches added
The after

Here are the same flowers, with the sticks, branches and sprigs of ferns in a beautiful urn.
