    A beginner's guide to arranging flowers - learn how to make this beautiful basket of blooms with step by step instructions

    Even if you don’t have any floral experience whatosever, a beautiful fresh flower arrangement can be simple to create – even with accessible flowers! I’m always enamored with the work of floral designers like Studio Choo and Amy Merrick but those coastal blooms aren’t always available in the midwest. Even when they are, they’re usually a 30 minute drive away at a wholesaler downtown.

    Today I’m sharing seven easy Easter centerpieces I’ve created over the years, all created with grocery store flowers! Get all my floral tutorials throughout the years right here.

    Where To Buy Easter Flowers

    Often, our busy lives mean that we need to simplify as much as possible. This means that when I’m shopping at the grocery store before hosting friends or family, I need to think ahead. I love that I can grab some beautiful, affordable blooms at the grocery store to arrange myself.

    Many of your local florists will offer a cash and carry program too, so if you have one nearby, support them when you can! In the spring months, you’ll have many options for buying your Easter Flowers. My guide to buying fresh flowers is the ultimate resource for shopping for beautiful blooms!

    Are Easter Flowers Poisonous?

    Luckily, so many other popular Easter flowers are safe, and there are plenty of other options to grace your table in the spring! 

    What Easter Flowers Are Best For Centerpieces? 

    Personally, I tend to choose flowers that look good in low, intimate centerpieces. I spent many years of my early career as an event designer, and I noticed that guests always preferred the lower, more intimate table settings. While tall, grand displays can certainly make an incredible statement in a room, it’s the charming small arrangements that will fill out your table and give your guests room to chat.

    With this in mind, consider spacing your fresh flowers out in a long garland style centerpiece, or choose a few low vases (or even your glassware) to create a dramatic effect down the center of your table. Hydrangeas, tulips, and hyacinths are all flowers that tend to look beautiful on their own. The don’t need extra greenery, fillers or other flowers to make a statement.
