Decorate your home with flowers on a budget

With all the expense of the previous year behind us – our banks hating us and purse strings tight, it is important to know how to do things on a budget. Just because your bank account isn’t your friend anymore doesn’t mean that you can’t get your home glowing this season with some beautiful flowers – on a budget.

A fresh flower in the home creates a great atmosphere and rids any tension in the room. Whilst many of us prefer the more expensive blooms – you can ensure your home looks good without spending a whole load of cash. 

So, here is some advice on how to make a little go a long way when it comes to decorating your home with beautiful flowers.

Single stem blooms
One of the best looks in the home can be created by simply displaying single stem flowers on their own in order to create a dramatic feel. As long as you ensure that all colours work together, this can have a great effect. You can pick up some single stem flowers from serenataflowers.com at a really good price. 

Display in separate containers
You can pick up inexpensive small vases from charity shops up and down the country and this is the perfect way to make that bouquet go a little further. Divide that bunch of flowers your friend gave you into a range of small vases and place them around your home. You will also get the maximum use out of these flowers, so this technique is definitely worthwhile. 

Choose the right container
The container you use to place your blooms in doesn’t have to be a glass vase. If the containers hold water, you can put a flower into it. This is where your creative flair can kick in – you can use tea pots, jam jars and even sugar bowls.

Choose the right placement
Placement is everything when it comes to showing off just one or two single stem flowers. So, you need to get it right. Ensure that any props nearby fit with the flower and enhance its scent and beauty. 

Go wild
If you haven’t been bought any flowers and you simply don’t want to spend the money on them – wild flowers are perfect too. You can pick these flowers up on your way home from work in the local park or even your own garden. 

Decorating your home with flowers this season has never been cheaper.
