{ DIY Free Cottage Style Flower Bouquet }

Friday, you're here sooo quick this week!! The light spring rain & huge blooming trees around us have me snipping  blooms & greenery at every corner haha..literally! After a light rain shower this morning , the tree next to us looked so fresh & bright I just had to pluck some blooms & make a bouquet!! Then I had one of those " Paige moments"..."Wow I should B L O G  this"!!  I love sharing thrifty tips with ya'll & this is super simple + thrifty because it's F R E E!! Yes, you heard that!! All I did was grab a few things & well I made our dining area soo much brighter with some simple stems!! Come read below more on this free & fabulous tablescape!!

S U P P L I E S:

These beautiful blooms { I don't know the name  } ha were courtesy of my neighbors beauty of a tree! Thanks neighbor-reno haha!


Side Note: I always put the picked stems in a bucket or whatever you're using in case they have little creatures. I just give a good shake before collecting them to take inside!


I mean how pretty is this simple bouquet & for FREE?! It's earthy, cottagey & neutral..check & check checkk! I decided to add some milky mason jars to the tray with a green tea towel for an added look! I mean I'm kind of obsessed with how fresh & bright this tablescape is! I've said this soo many times before, but for me, most posts aren't planned but more INSPIRED & this for sure is one of those times!

The variations in these blooms couldn't fit better in our home. The white, crisp almost faux looking green & the little specs of yellow in the middle are sooo gorgeous! The simple green tea towel really brought out the blooms & the colors within!

I used this vase because honestly it was sitting on the counter from Mark getting me flowers from our 12 year anniversary on Monday! At first after shooting this post, I was like crap why'd I use that crystal vase but then I loved how it photographed! So see sometimes things that aren't planned turn out the best..Something this Type A needs to work on haha. P.s the crystal vase was a free find.

I for got to mention this above but the copper gardening tools are from Target Dollar spot. They matched the runner with specs of copper & just added a little garden ambiance!

What did y'all think of this post? Do you like this DIY freebie kind of post? I sure do because let's face it not everyone can or would want to spend a bunch of money on a tablescape when you can achieve this fresh cottagey look with just clipping some fresh blooms off your neighbors tree haha!

I hope you have a fabulous FRIDAY!
