How To Transform a Grocery Store Bouquet into a Floral Shop Arrangement

Do you love freshly cut flowers as much as I do? Do you hate to pay a lot for them as much as I do too? I'm here to show you how to transform a grocery store bouquet into a floral shop arrangement.

Did you see how the way I describe the two flower options makes a visual impact on you? For me the grocery store bouquet conjures up visions of tightly packed daisies and carnations whereas the floral shop arrangement makes me think of aromatic lilies and big fresh blooms that have lots of room to breathe in their vase.

I'm going to show you how to create the latter with the former and save you bunches of dollars in the process. The photos below were taken of the Mother's Day bouquet I received from my family. And let me be clear, they are wonderful and they definitely came from the grocery store.

I know they did because I called my husband from bed to ask what our morning schedule was and he was driving home...from the grocery store! 

How To Transform a Grocery Store Bouquet into a Floral Shop Arrangement

The operative method to transform any tightly bundled bouquet into a lush and full floral arrangement is to start by deconstructing. Do not assume that you can simply trim the ends from your bouquet, pop them in an open mouth vase and call it good.

You really must grab your clippers and lay each stem out to inspect.

To create your floral shop arrangement, lay out each of your stem.

Fill your vase with water and get to work.

Start by taking 3-4 of your brightest blooms and create your anchor points. I used the light pink carnations and hot pink tea roses.

Pull off the lower leaves that would otherwise be submerged and trim your stems on an angle.

Place these anchor blooms in your vase.

Next, take your greenery and pull off any tired looking leaves. Trim the greenery and place in the vase below and behind the anchor blooms. 

Now, start trimming and pulling lower leaves from your remaining blooms and place them in your floral arrangement. See how easy it is?!

Be sure to trim these last blooms and artfully place them throughout the bouquet.

Give your arrangement a spin to make sure you like all the angles.

That's it! Enjoy!
