How To Arrange Flowers Like a Pro

Now is the time to get ready for all of the fresh flowers you’ll be receiving not only for Christmas and the New Year but for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, and more and today I want to share the easiest way I have ever found for arranging flowers successfully.  How to Arrange Flowers Like a PRO at cupcakesandcrinoline.comI love fresh flowers but arranging them is NOT something I do well.  I can take them out of the plastic, trim the bottoms (all while keeping them together in a bunch) and then plunk them all at once into a vase and perhaps fluff them a little.  That’s the extent of my ability….until now.

As a member of the bHome community I was given the opportunity to try a flower arranging gadget called Budable.  I was thrilled to try it and share my results with you.  Flowers in Bucket from cupcakesandcrinoline.comI bought a bouquet of flowers at Costco and then….set them in a bucket in the basement until I had time to arrange them.  Okay, truth be told I kept forgetting and then I went downstairs to do the laundry and saw them….UGH…does that ever happen to you?

Vases and Budables

I followed the directions on the package stretching the Budable a bit before placing it on the top of my vase.  (check out the video above to see exactly how easy it was to put on the vase).  I then started arranging the flowers.  It was so easy and everything stayed in place perfectly.  If I need to add water all I have to do is gently remove the Budable (the flowers will stay in place), add or change the water and then put the Budable back on to my vase.

Here’s where thinking outside the box comes into play.  I will be straightening up my craft room in January and I’ll be using the Budable on top of some vintage vases and containers to hold paint brushes, pencils, ribbons, etc.Christmas Floral Arrangement at cupcakesandcrinoline.comYou can order Budables here and become a pro flower arranger, too!  And, if you don’t already have the bHome app on your phone you can download it for free and follow some of your favorite bloggers and online magazines all in one place.  Once downloaded I would love if you tapped the star for Cupcakes and Crinoline 🙂
