helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Happy Friday, Budget Savvy Brides! It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again, here to bring you this week’s installation of Blooms on a Budget. I hope it will inspire you to make something beautiful so your weekend is a little more special!

Blooms on a Budget spider mums

shopping list:

For this particular arrangement, I used a simple silver vessel I had on hand. In the arrangement, I combined some fluffy spider mums with seeded eucalyptus and dreamy baby's breath for some extra texture. Spider mums are a lovely way to bring a clean, white look to your floral arrangements. The result is a textured arrangement that would be perfect for a wedding any time of year! Since these little arrangements won't take up a ton of space, you could easily add candles, a table runner, or other colorful details to the center of the table to round out your centerpieces.

If you're on an extra tight budget, you could make these arrangements even tinier in bud vases to spread the color out among your table for a fuller centerpiece, perhaps placing a large candle in the center. Another way to reduce the cost per arrangement or per table would be to incorporate extra filler pieces like the eucalyptus stems or baby's breath!

As always, I hope you enjoyed this simple arrangement and that it inspires or empowers you to attempt some DIY floral arranging of your own! Do you think you'll tackle any of the flowers for your big day? If so, I definitely recommend you check out the free guide for DIY Wedding Flowers from our friends at Blooms by the Box!


When working with flowers, make sure you have the following items on hand:

scissors / flower cutters

floral tape


clear floral arranging tape

Happy flower arranging!

    This is so amazing, keep them coming. I have been struggling with finding affordable pretty arrangements. I feel like I could print this out and go to a florist and they can’t fight me on it.
