Awhile back I used to to treat myself to flowers each week. Just for the record, these were 99.9% of the time, flower bundles from my local grocery store. They always have a rotation of seasonal flowers, nothing super fancy, but you can’t beat the 3 bundles for $12 special. These simple flowers brought so much joy and when they had eucalyptus, oh man, I was hella excited!
This past year I haven’t been in to it as much for some reason, I’ve been shopping more at Target than the grocery store and sadly Target just doesn’t have flowers. I would love to get back into the habit of weekly flowers and spreading some cheer around The Little Gray House. Henry has proven himself an excellent cart steerer and connoisseur of flowers…although he’d much rather pick all the flowers off the stem.
With the itch to start arranging flowers again, I thought Henry & I could spread some Fall cheer to some special people in our lives. We hopped in the car and went to ohh and ahh over all the prettiness of the grocery store flowers. We were in luck, they not only had flowers in pretty Fall colors, they had eucalyptus! I was way too excited, ha!
A couple of years ago I made these You’ve Been Boo’d cards and thought they’d be perfect to give along side a petite fall flower bouquet. I spent nap time arranging them and the next day we set out spreading Fall cheer!
We had so much fun visiting friends and wanted to share with you how you can make your own petite Fall flower bouquet to either treat yourself or Boo someone special this Halloween.
HOW TO MAKE PETITE FALL FLOWER BOUQUETS
- Choose flowers within the same color palette that vary in size and texture. Flowers that are in the red, orange, and yellow family work well together.
- Grab a bundle of greens or use cuttings from your own yard.
- If you’re going to give away the bouquet to a friend, here’s an easy way to wrap it: Layer a damp paper towel on top of Saran Wrap and wrap around the trimmed stems. Then wrap with tissue paper; I used saved pieces of tissue paper from gifts and packages. Secure your bundle with ribbon or tie.
- Deliver with a You’ve Been Boo’d card!
If you would like to deliver your bouquets with the You’ve Been Boo’d card you can print below – just type your email address in and they’ll be sent directly to you! There are two cards per sheet, print on card stock and cut – easy peasy!
I would love to see your flower arrangements! If you take a photo please tag @eightpepperberries on Instagram and use the hashtag #simplebeautifulyours – the beauty is that no two bouquets are ever exactly the same & I’m excited to see yours!
