During winter months, there is little fresh greenery to be seen outdoors, especially for the people who live in the Midwest. Hence, we feel that cut flowers will be home decor to brighten these dark days. However, we still want to keep our little weekly indulgence as frugal as we can, which means we buy our flower from the super market and arrange them at home. I believe many of you do the same thing as I do.
Even though we are no professionals when it comes to flower-arranging, here a few more tips on choosing the best grocery store bloom to bring our arrangement to life.
Avoid the pre-mixed grocery store bouquets. It is fun to break up these bouquets into small arrangements, but I find that the pre-made grocery store bouquets are often less fresh. They seem to wilt faster. Also, they are usually padded with a great deal of unnecessary greenery. I just like to pick out my own single variety, unless there is something really extraordinary in one of those pre-made bouquets.
Choosing the most beautiful flower you can find. Anything you think is beautiful is available. Pick out the focal point that you want to look at all week. Avoid any flowers that are fully open. Look out for slimy stems, brown leaves, or wilting petals. Better to find something green while you are choosing the flowers. For example, roses are very conventional and as lovely as they are, so choose variegated pittosporum which is hardy and long-lived is suitable.
As for me, looking for beautiful flowers at the best prices is an interesting process, do you think so? And when you get your flowers home dunk them in some water and cut them into suitable length, After all, you can place the flowers into ceramic vase.
