The super easy trick for arranging flowers in a bucket or other large containers.
A few weeks ago I was at Costco and they had two dozen flowers on sale for $13.99. I really enjoy having fresh flowers around the house and for this price, I grabbed a bunch and didn’t look back.
Once I got home I was looking for a vase, my kitchen is still not back together since the remodel, and I couldn’t find a vase but I did spy a pink pail I bought from the dollar spot at Target back in the spring and that’s when I started thinking. I am not sure if the pail is purely decorative or if it would hold water and rather than fill it with water and see if it would work I decided to try something different which I am so glad I did.
Not only did this trick work great because of the water issue but also it made arranging the flowers so much easier.
How To Arrange Flowers in Large Containers
I pulled two mason jars from my stash, checked to make sure they would fit side-by-side in the pail and then got to work.
I filled both jars with water and food and then started measuring the length of the roses and started cutting.
I like to measure one perfectly and use that as my guide.
That works great when you want everything to be approximately the same height and that’s the look I wanted for this display so I was good to go.
As I went along, I placed one dozen roses in each jar. It was a perfect snug fit.
Once I was done, I placed the jars in my pail.
That is the secret…the whole entire thrifty tip. Use.Jars.Bam.Done.
