A Cheap Bouquet

Yesterday I needed a bouquet to say 'Thank you ' to someone for all their hard work. I was rather taken aback by the cost and wanted something that looked nice so instead I bought one bunch pf tulips and made my own with what else I had in the garden.

Packaging is half of what makes a bouquet special and I always save the packaging which comes with any flowers that I receive. So, I added daffodils and greenery to the tulips, reused the cellophane and used tissue paper and a lovely, yellow flower box I had saved. Altogether it looked very nice and saved me around £7.50 !

Just as much pleasure but at 1/3 of the cost !

Do you make your own bouquets ?


  1. I always rewrap flowers in tissue and cellophane to give as a gift. Sadly, that's the limit of my floral art skills! Catriona

  2. It sounds like you go to a lot of effort to make your bouquets look nice , I'm sure that the recipients appreciate it !

  3. That is a great idea. It never occurred to me to add garden flowers to bulk out a shop bought bunch. I too save all the cellophane and tissue and re use them when I need to.
