Easy, Inexpensive Floral Art

By Erin Ferucci

We’ve been talking about hosting a dinner party elegantly, effortlessly and economically. Just because we’re all being frugal doesn’t mean we have to be dowdy! One of the easiest and least expensive ways to dress up any table is with fresh flowers. And it’s so easy to get great results! I love Calla Lilies; they come in a wide variety of colors and can artfully be thrown into unique glassware. Move them around creatively and .....Viola!Presto! For only a few dollars you have a beautiful centerpiece. Don't be afraid to push the flowers around, they aren't going to get mad at you. Push them around until you've reached a creative balance. You'll know when you get there. You don't want to over do floral arrangements. Have some confidence and keep it simple.Choose colors that go with central theme. I love these amaryllis blooms submerged in cool water in a lovely glass bowl. Quick, easy and inexpensive, these flowers elevate any table from ever day to special occasion.
