DIY Flower Arrangement For Mother's Day

I will give my mom a DIY flower bouquet on Mother's Day. It has tremendous value because it is made with love. And it is affordable to do it myself and to use the extra money for her other special gift.

Anyway, I found this beautiful rustic and garden-style flower basket, and I thought this would be nice for my flower arrangement, which is a bit different from what I usually arrange, but this would be something new for her.

I chose Red and Vendela Roses because it is one of my favorite flowers. You will never go wrong with these roses; Vendela roses represent beauty, sophistication, purity, and glamour, just like my mom. And red roses symbolize love, admiration, and gratitude, and that's how I feel toward her.

I added some of the green leaves from my garden for a sentimental touch and complimented the flowers.

Do you know that most florists charge you triple the initial price or even more? For instance, if they spent $10 on the flowers and tools, they will sell them to you for $30+. This is how it goes to make down the price: first, for the Ten dollars that they spent for the flowers and tools, Ten dollars for the mortgage/store, and another Ten dollars for their service. Then, for every dollar they finish, they charge you triple the price. And represent beauty; sophistication, don't forget about busy days like Holidays, Mother's Day, and Valentine's day; the demand is high, and prices will skyrocket. So if you are on a budget, it is better to arrange the flowers yourself; you will save more than 50% of the prices. Is that cool?

What you need:

  • 1. Flow r knife or Pruning Shears

  • 1/2 Flower foam

  • A basket by Debby Lilly, or you can get it on VONS CLUB or any basket

  • 6 stems of Red Roses

  • 6 stalks of Vendela Roses


1. Clea your tools

2. Soak the foam in the water and the flower's food ( if you don't, just put sugar

3. cut the foam to fit the basket and put a little water about 1 inch from the bottom.

4. Clea the flowers, remove all the leaves, and remove 2 or 3 of the rose's petal layers. That way, it makes it look fresh.

5. To make t easy, sort it according to the color or flowers.

6. Cut it. It effortlessly d measures how tall you want your arrangement to stand. I suggest not too tall, just enough for the flowers to fit all together on the basket; the most elevated it is, the more space you have, which means the more flowers you need to feel in.

8. Stick the flowers to the foam and make 5-point marks, one in the middle and four others in every corner, as you wish to mark your arrangement's shape. And starting then, fill it up to space with the rest of the flowers.

9. Put the leaves on the flowers' outer side and fill out the empty spot between the flowers.

The total cost for my DIY is $15, which means if you buy this at a floral store, it will cost you around $50+, and because it is mother's day, add another $15. So, in conclusion, the price at the Floral Store will be $65

Like I always said, "Practice would make it better."

Thank you so much for reading, and please tell me what you think in the comment below. And again, Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there!

Much love.
