Whether you’re buying a bunch of flowers for Valentine’s Day, as a gift to a friend or a little treat to yourself, the purchase always feels so much better when you score a great fresh bunch on a budget. Am I right?
I’m a huge believer that your corner grocery store flowers are a true gem when chosen well and presented simply. So, I was thrilled when I spotted that Lilli from Bon Appétit teamed up with the awesome Taylor from Fox Fodder Farm to show how we don’t have to overspend on pre-arranged bouquets and how easily we can make one ourselves at home.
It’s all about sticking to the basics of getting one type of bloom in a colour that isn’t too loud and pairing them with a simple base, like eucalyptus. Oh and let’s not forget the secret weapon aka the masking tape for the vase. For more of Taylor's tips head over here.

P.S: All things flowers...
P.P.S: And a great reminder that good things take time.
