Keep It Simple. Buying bulk flowers online can save you big bucks, so consider online vendors such as BunchesDirect who can also ensure freshness and quality. Stretch your decorating dollars even more by using only a few blooms per vase or container, and create decorative touches that are beautiful as well as economical.
For example, a single rose placed on top of a candlestick holder is an unexpected way to create visual impact for less.
Rummage in your grandmother’s cupboards, ask to borrow from friends and family, scour garage and vintage sales, and visit second hand stores for different candlestick holders, or use antique teacups for another creative display option for roses.
Bigger is Better. Choose blooms that are larger, such as bright and cheery gerbera daisies, and only a few will go a long way.
These yellow chrysanthemums are very inexpensive, and look wonderful in a series of small and simple vases.
Water Things Down. Water is your budget-saving friend. Submerging or floating a few blooms in water lets you use fewer blooms without sacrificing any style points. Water and flowers are a wonderful combination of elements from nature that will dress your tables beautifully, at low cost.
Shown here, pink and cream roses with some bear grass create beautiful low-budget centerpieces.
Submerging the blooms entirely is another way to create big style. The water magnifies the shape and color of the flower and stem, essentially increasing their visual impact and interest. Add some floating candles for some additional gleam. Lighting up your submerged flower arrangements provides even more drama.Making your own submerged flower arrangements is quite easy!
The elegant, trumpet-like shape and vivid color of these orange calla lilies is a perfect choice for this submerged arrangement.
Choosing seasonal flowers is another way to save money as the prices may be lower. Ask your floral consultant for advice.
