My favorite place to find fresh flowers from is my garden. 

Because…well, they are free!   

But, when it’s 20 degrees outside and my garden is asleep, my second favorite place is Trader Joe’s. ūüôā

When in doubt, Trader Joe’s always seems to have the freshest, most reasonably priced flowers around. 

I found this beautiful arrangement for less than $10. 

Rather than put it all in one vase, I decided to divide one big bouquet into 3.

Step by Step Flower Arrangement Tips

Step ONE – Flip your Flowers upside Down Next a Table

Using our dining room table, I flipped the flowers upside down as a guide to know how much of the stems to take off.

Step TWO – Cut your Flowers Stems to the Right Length

Step THREE – Cut Off Any Extra Flower Leaves

Once the stems were the right length I pulled off any extra leaves on the bottom of the flower stems.

Extra leaves in the water will keep the water from staying clean & causing the water to have a bad odor so I try and remove as many as I can.

Step FOUR – Divide Up the Bouquet into 3 Flower Arrangements

I divided up the flowers evenly between the 3 mason jars making sure to keep a mix of colors for each arrangement.

Step FIVE – Use a Rubber Band to Keep the Flowers in Place

My favorite tip for flower arranging is to use a rubber band. 

Rubber bands will keep the flowers in place & also make your arrangements easy to water by simply lifting up ALL the flowers at once.

Ball Jars are hands down my favorite vases to add flowers to. 

They look pretty, are always in style & the clear glass looks great for any season.

  1. Such a great idea to buy a big bouquet and then break it up into smaller bouquets to use all around the house! I love sunflowers and I can’t even imagine what 20 degree weather feels like ha ha. I hope you’re staying warm and snuggly. Your arrangement is so pretty! Hugs, CoCo
