It’s Maddy again, here to bring you the newest installment of Blooms on a Budget. I love today’s arrangement made from garden roses and Craspedia, and I hope you do, too! I used garden roses which are a great budget-friendly substitute for peonies, and they pair beautifully with the Craspedia, don’t you think?

About this DIY centerpiece:

For this particular Blooms on a Budget arrangement, I used a simple vessel I had on hand. In this arrangement, I combined some pale pink colored Juliet garden roses with some craspedia and pittosporum and solidago greenery for a little extra color and texture. The result is a light and airy arrangement that would look beautiful for a spring or summer 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.

Savvy Flower Tips:

One thing that makes these arrangements budget friendly is that the garden roses make a lovely substitute for a Peony. If you love the look of fluffy, pricey peonies, you’ll love the garden rose as a cheaper alternative. If you’re on an extra tight budget, you could put one of each in a tinier bud vase 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 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!
