Make a Stunning Centerpiece from Grocery Store Flowers
Here is a super easy flower arrangement idea you can make in just a couple of minutes that adds instant wow factor to your home. You can totally use an inexpensive grocery store bouquet for this and still make some lovely table decor for your home. Arrange single flowers in small vases together on a tray for an almost instant centerpiece.
If you know me, you know I love decorating with flowers. Ideally, I would have fresh flowers in every room of my home. And there have been days in summer when my garden was in full bloom that I have gotten close to that ideal. Not in the first few months of the year though.
When I have to rely on store-bought flowers to create floral arrangements I have to limit myself to a fresh bouquet every once in a while. But when I do indulge in buying fresh flowers I like to create a centerpiece with a little oomph. One of my favorite floral arrangements with grocery store flowers is the winter fresh flower bouquet idea.
This week I splurged on some grocery store flowers and I created an easy – 10 minute floral arrangement to get the most bang for my buck.
The bouquet I choose was made with several different single flowers. They did look good together, but each different flower by itself was already a beauty. So I decided to work with that.
I got myself a nice large tray and started playing around with different small vases, glasses, bowls and candle holders. I stuck with a theme of clear glass and white. When I came up with a collection of small vases for my flowers that I thought would work I moved on to the next step.
I prepared the water for the flowers to ensure that they would last as long as possible. When I am working with glass vases I like to use flower food that mixes clear with water. I mixed up enough water and food to fill up all my tiny vases. With a little extra care you can make your cut-flowers last longer indoors.

Next was the fun step. Adding a flower to each vase. I held up each flower to a possible vase and decided which one would look best in what vase. Some I cut a little longer, others I cut really short. This step is really easy though. You can’t really go wrong.
Each flower individually is so beautiful and when you show a flower off all by itself, it always looks good. Adding them all together on a tray like this, just makes for a bigger statement.
