Blooms on a Budget #04: Red Tulips and Baby’s Breath

Thanks to Blooms by the Box for sponsoring our Blooms on a Budget series!

Happy Weekend, Budget Savvy Brides! It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again. Another Friday means another installment of Blooms on a Budget. Today’s arrangement is perfect for Valentine’s Day but uses some stunning poppy colored tulips rather than traditional red roses. I think this is my favorite installment so far!

For this particular arrangement, I used a hobnail white milk glass vessel I had on hand. In the arrangement, I combined some poppy red tulips with Israeli Ruscus greenery and dreamy baby’s breath for some extra color and texture. The result is a simple 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 Ruscus 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!
