About this arrangement

For this particular Blooms on a Budget arrangement, I used a simple vessel I had on hand. I combined some white ranunculus with some spray roses and Italian Ruscus for a classic and elegant look!

A special DIY flower tip for everyone, because I get a lot of questions on the topic: the centerpiece 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!

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!
