I love today’s feature, and I hope you do, too! I used garden roses which are a great substitute for peonies, and they pair beautifully with the craspedia, don’t you think?

Today, I have a beautiful spring arrangement that makes me wish I wasn’t just hit with 6″ of snow here in Minnesota! The color is so bright and cheerful – it warms me right up!

Blooms on a Budget #10 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-10/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-10/#comments Fri, 29 Mar 2013 15:30:14 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=20893 It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again, which means it’s time for yet another Blooms on a Budget! Today’s arrangement comes from a reader request for affordable arrangements in a black, white, and gold color palette – very chic! Some gorgeous black centered white anemones really bring the graphic look into this arrangement, and the gold whimsical ruscus compliments it with a softer look.

Blooms on a Budget #10 from Somewhere Splendid via the Budget Savvy Bride. Ranunculus, anemones, and gold painted Italian ruscus.

Note that this arrangement uses gold sprayed greenery, which Blooms by the Box does not carry in a pretreated form. Floral safe spray can be purchased for $6 or $7, and the amount of paint used by this arrangement is worth very little. The price of the leaves was already rounded up and covers the cost of them if they are spray painted.

Blooms on a Budget #09 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-09/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-09/#comments Fri, 22 Mar 2013 17:47:43 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=20804 Happy Friday, everyone! It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again, and I’m excited to bring this week’s installment of Blooms on a Budget.  Today’s arrangement is another special request from Ez of Creature Comforts  for her sister’s purple hued wedding. Instead of going with stronger purple accents, today’s arrangement has subtle lavender tones that are brought in by some misty blue limonium.

Note on the budget for this one: a bunch of limonium costs roughly $20. A small sprig of limonium, as used here, costs closer to 50 cents a piece, but the price is rounded up. You can probably get roughly 30 or 40 similarly styled pieces out of the bunch.

Blooms on a Budget #8 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-8/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-8/#comments Fri, 15 Mar 2013 17:00:48 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=20642 Happy Friday, everyone! It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again, and I’m excited to bring you our first arrangement that is officially sponsored by Blooms by the Box.  Today’s arrangement is a special request from Ez of Creature Comforts (love her and her blog!) for her sister’s purple hued wedding.

A special tip for everyone, because I get a lot of questions on the topic: the flower vessels I use are the perfect size for most parties. However, catering tables like those at weddings are generally slightly larger scale (seating ten, sometimes more, at each), so you may want to consider doubling the size of the arrangement if you’re using them for weddings and larger events. If that’s not in your budget, consider adding 50% more flowers, incorporating candles into your tablescape, or even a combination of both!

Blooms on a Budget: Now taking Reader Requests! http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-reader-requests/ http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/blooms-on-a-budget-reader-requests/#comments Fri, 08 Mar 2013 17:00:55 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=20459 Blooms on a Budget from Somewhere Splendid via the Budget Savvy Bride

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m going to take a break from the series today to bring you some great news. I’m excited to announce that Blooms on a Budget will now be sponsored by Blooms by the Box, a company I’ve worked with since my days as the blogger behind the Inspired Bride. They sell a wide variety of fresh flowers by the bunch at affordable prices, and our partnership with them will open the door for new, boutique flower options that I may not be able to source locally. This opens a lot of opportunities for both myself and for you, the readers. We’d like to offer the opportunity for Blooms on a Budget reader requests! Are you looking to incorporate a specific flower or color? Let me know in the comments section and I’ll keep these requests in mind as I plan the next few months. If you have an event you are planning for (like a wedding or bridal shower), please let me know what month it will be in so I can make sure I use flowers that will be in season. Sound off below!
