We have friends hosting dinners, engagement parties, cocktail hours, birthday parties and baby showers over the next few months which requires a little gift for the hostess! I don’t know about you but I always tend to wait until the last minute {think an hour before we leave} to remember the hostess gift so I wanted to share the easiest fall floral bouquet that you can easily do at home. We have a Trader Joe’s just down the street that luckily always has an amazing flower stock but you can easily call ahead to your favorite flower shop or grocery store to see what is in stock. This bouquet can easily be made in the car/on the go. Here’s what you need:

  • One type of flower in a variety of similar colors. In this case we used spray roses in three shades of similar colors – deep red, peach and orange.
  • Extra newspaper – 2 sheets.
  • Ribbon. We used a burlap ribbon but you could also use a pretty velvet ribbon!

Randomly arrange the flowers into a bouquet. A trick of the trade: bundle a few stems together and then do a quarter turn of the entire bouquet. Add a few more flowers followed by another quarter turn, a few more and another quarter turn until all of the flowers are incorporated. This will help add some variation to the order!

Wrap the bouquet in two sheets of newspaper, lining it up diagonally so a corner is in line with the top of the flowers {refer to image above}. Tie with a ribbon and you’re good to go! I love that this bouquet is beautiful but also looks homemade. It makes it feel like you took the time to make something special for whoever it is for.

I worked with the fabulous Oliver Dogwood to assemble this bouquet and will be sharing an easy fall floral arrangement for your next dinner party or for a more formal gift next week.
