Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Mommas out there! Cheers to you….we hope you have a relaxing weekend planed for yourself! If you are anything like us you are focusing more on spoiling your own mom and making her day special and forgetting that the day is also about you. Our mom loves loves flowers…they make her super happy so part of her gift is always a huge bouquet. We use to always spend $$$ at florists until we realized that we could do it ourself & they still look pretty damn good, for less that half the cost! What we do is pick 4 bunches of flowers from Trader Joe’s, usually two larger flowers (roses, hydrangeas, peonies etc.) & two bundles of fillers (small daisies, baby breathe, leafy greens) and we like to make sure all four are different but coordinating in colors. Pick up a cute cheap clear circular vase at target to put them in (or this metallic one is super cute too), therefor it matches with everything and the big bundle will fill it out well. Cut them all around the same length and then just start filling in , we usually mix the two larger flowers together first and set them in the center then slowly fill in sides will filler flower and mix in. Other option is making a few smaller bouquets so your mom can put them all around the house, we use ball jars with the same technique! (see below). We have had good luck with this and our mom loves it even more because we took the time to make it for her 🙂 and she knows we didn’t over spend (Momma is a budget shopper-where we got it ;).
