Open To New Ideas
One of my favorite past times is finding unique items in local thrift stores and deciphering how I want to portray them in my home. Personally speaking, I usually wind up leaving the store pretty empty-handed most of the time. Only because a lot of the items are entirely too old, not interesting enough, or require me to spend more money than I’d hoped to begin with.
In this case, I go off pretty lucky the vase was maybe $14 at the time of purchase. This is one of those times when I’d felt lucky. The color was fabulous and the idea I had for this vase was beyond possibility.
So after purchasing the vase I decided to go to HobbyLobby and purchase some faux flowers. This isn’t required, but if you are able to find the desired selection of florals in your local thrift store stick with this process. Now, this required some actual thought in my process because of the various selection of flowers HobbyLobby has available. I could have gone with a more grass appeal but I thought the process was too bland. I knew what my grandmother taught me when making arrangements.
How to create a simple thrift store floral arrangement:
- Start with a unique vase that appeals to your creativity
- Select different florals (3 to 5 different types) that complement the vase and your home, remember all flowers have meanings.
- Be sure your selection compliments the colors already in your home.
- Once you have confirmed your choice of flowers start from the outside and work your way in and up.
Simple right? Yeah, I know, making floral arrangements are exciting. You can always learn via YouTube University, and it’s free. Here are a couple more upcoming projects. Though I purchased these vases from HomeGoods, who knows I may find the needed arrangements from a local thrift store. Here’s hoping, stay tuned to what I hope to display for these wonderful vases in the near future.
