Tips For Giving Bright Flowers

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas! If you are a mom, may you be loved and may your bright flowers be gorgeously collected this weekend. After years of longing, Mother’s Day is always such a special day for me and we are celebrating this year with the best gift ever… bright flowers!

Bright Flowers

Gifting and receiving bright flowers has been a traditional Mother’s Day ideal since its day one. Flowers don’t have to feel old fashioned, or be boring at all. One of my favorite things to do is to make a bouquet of bright flowers into a thoughtful gift. With all the pretty spring varieties available right now… it’s so easy.

Tips For Bright Flowers

Here are my 3 favorite ideas for gussying up a store bought bouquet of bright flowers…

1. Make the vase special

Buying a store gathered bright flowers bouquet can turn into a gorgeous table display by simply breaking the bouquet into its individual flowers, and placing them in vases.

Decoupage a pretty design onto the vases that will look great in mom’s living room even after the first batch of flowers is gone. Create a striking display with simple mason jars and paper folded into a polygon shapes, or make a gold frosted bowl that she will bring out for every special occasion. You can even get the kid’s involved making simple Washi tape Dixie cups vase – so cute!

2. Use the flowers creatively

One of the easiest ways to make store bought blooms look special is to pull them into a different use altogether. Present mom with a herb wreath she can use for cooking, accented with a few bright blooms. Make a floral necklace or a floral crown for her to wear throughout the day – she will feel really special.

3. Wrap the bouquet in style

I love opting for a big bouquet of the same flower. The bigger the better! If you’re shopping at a store like Trader Joe’s with cheap small bouquets, buy 2 or 3 of them at a time and wrap them together for an incredible display. It’s peony season… Hint, hint. ;) To wrap a gigantic bouquet use dip dyed paper bouquet holders, or scarf wrapped floral bouquet that mom can keep after the flowers are gone.
