Blooms on a Budget #10: Ranunculus, Anemones, and Sprayed Eucalyptus

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

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.

For this particular Blooms on a Budget arrangement, I used a simple vessel I had on hand. In this arrangement, I combined some white anemones and ranunculus with some Italian Ruscus that I treated with a little gold spraypaint for an extra dose of glam! I love these little arrangements for any sort of elevated, elegant wedding, no matter the season! Since each of these little arrangements won’t take up a ton of space, you could easily add candles, a table runner, or other glitzy 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 smaller and spread your blooms out among many tiny bud vases. I love the white, black and gold color scheme because it feels elegant and chic. Another way to reduce the cost per arrangement or per table would be to incorporate extra filler pieces such as additional eucalyptus stems or even baby’s breath!

Note that this arrangement uses gold sprayed greenery, which Blooms by the Box does not carry in a pretreated form. Floral safe spray paint 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.

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!
