Blooms on a Budget #07: Hyacinth, Israeli Ruscus, and Baby's Breath

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

It’s Maddy from Somewhere Splendid and Confetti Pop again, here to bring you another installment of Blooms on a Budget. The snow is beginning to thaw here in Minnesota, and so I'm hoping to see some bulbs popping up soon! This arrangement is perfect for the first weeks of spring, don't you think?

Hyacinth, Israeli Ruscus, and Baby's Breath

Blooms on a Budget #07 from Somewhere Splendid via Budget Savvy Bride.

shopping list:

For this particular arrangement, I used a simple white vase I had on hand. In the arrangement, I combined some pale pink colored hyacinth stems with some baby's breath and some Israeli Ruscus greenery for a little extra color and texture. The result is a simple arrangement that would be perfect for an outdoor spring wedding! 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 put a spring of baby's breath and a hyacinth stem in a bunch of tinier 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 even 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 post was brought to you by Blooms by the Box, a fabulous DIY floral resource. Their floral selection is great for brides and party throwers alike because you can buy their catalog of blooms by the bunch rather than in larger lots.
