Flower Arranging Tips Video: Wine Country Floral Arrangement Ideas for Home

Give the gift of a homemade bouquet of flowers and tree leaves for Mother's Day, birthdays and more

Looking for floral arrangement ideas for home or a homemade gift that is both thoughtful and easy? Don’t be intimidated by fancy flowers and floral design. You can make a beautiful bouquet yourself with this quick flower arranging tips demonstration video and floral shopping list. Beautiful flowers make any special occasion memorable, from Mother’s Day, anniversaries and birthdays to the day you say, “I do.” (Yes, I did make my own wedding bouquet.)

I source my flowers from the Jordan garden and surrounding trees, but sometimes purchase locally from Sequoia Floral. Incorporating natural tree branches and moss into floral arrangements adds a rustic, yet elegant touch–and saves money. You’ll also need a few simple tools. If you don’t have time to visit your local Michael’s, Amazon is also a great source for floral design supplies.
