A Tulip Arrangement For Mom
One of the most special days of the year for me is Mother's Day. It's a time I can sit back and relax, do nothing if I so please....and to share a lovely day with my mom. Today's post will feature how to make a lovely arrangement for mom without breaking the bank.
When I think of this arrangement, I like to think of flowers representative of Spring; after all, Mother's Day occurs while it is still springtime. :)
I personally love the easy elegance of tulips for the Spring season.
A quick browse online, and I found a few pretty arrangements I'd love for my mom.
Teleflora's Deluxe tulips, $67.95 plus shipping, tax, and handling
The most inexpensive (comparable) arrangement I found was via FTD. $59.99 for 30 tulips, plus shipping, tax, and handling.
Making your own arrangement is so simple! I began my arrangement with two bunches of grocery-store tulips, which were $9.99 each. Trim the flower stems in a diagonal manner.
I placed the tulips a small milkglass urn, for which I paid $3. I like the flowers to be about two inches above the container.
You may even adorn your vase with a small bit of ribbon if you prefer. There's nothing quite like something you have hand-made as a gift! It definitely lets the receiver know they are worth the time it took for you to make it. Please stay tuned for tomorrow's post, which will be my Mother's Day Tablescape.
