I wasn’t intending on going to the Farmer’s Market this morning but I was in the vicinity and made my way there in hopes of finding some fresh flowers. I ended up buying a total of 4 bundles of flowers and for $15.00 I was able to make 3 simple flower arrangements. I love having fresh flowers in our home and if there isn’t anything in the garden blooming then I might have to make a trip to the Farmer’s Market a regular routine. simple flower arrangements calla lily flowers reviving charm 1

Given that magenta is one of my favorite colors I was immediately drawn to the beautiful rich color of these calla lilies. I cannot take credit for this arrangement design because I “borrowed” it from the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Laguna Niguel, California. I love the simplicity and elegance of it.  I simply tied the bundle with a strand of double faced satin ribbon. I placed the bundle in a beautiful Orrefors crystal glass vase that was a wedding present to Mr. B and I over 18 years ago. You can purchase something similar here. The lilies will look lovely when they start to droop over the side of the vase a bit.

Next up…I gathered the remaining 3 bundles of flowers and a variety of containers in various shapes and sizes.

In the end I opted to make one large and one small arrangement. The large arrangement stands at 29 inches tall and is contained in a glass vase I found at Goodwill for a mere three dollars. I like how the base of the vase is a thick, substantial piece of glass. It adds a nice decorative touch but more importantly it helps weight the vase down to keep it from tipping over.

I chose to put the remaining flowers into a white pitcher. The purple flowers will look pretty against the yellow “filler” flowers once they bloom. I always forget the name of these purple flowers. Does anyone know? purple and yellow simple flower arrangement reviving charm

So there you have it…the easiest flower arrangements ever. Now I just have to decide on a location for each of them. By the way, they were each photographed sitting on the octagon entry table that is a project in the works. I will be sure to share that project once it is complete.
