Looking for easy tips on how to make a quick flower arrangement? It’s never been easier with this simple flower-arranging tool.
Here’s the step-by-step on how to create a quick flower arrangement that looks like you spent all afternoon creating it.
I wish you could see me right now.
Sometimes I get so excited that I can’t sit still. I hop up and down in my chair and my feet wiggle and I look like a jumping bean.
This is one of those times.
WAIT until you see this flower arrangement.
And it’s so easy and quick that anyone can do it.
The best part about the arrangement is that you can easily start with a grocery store arrangement like this. I bought these yesterday at Trader Joe’s for under $10 for all of them. I brought them home and trimmed the stems (always trim the stems at an angle) and removed the extra leaves from the bottom (you never want to have leaves below the water line to make the arrangement last longer).
I used my secret quick no-fail flower decorating amazing tool.
That looks like this.
It’s the easiest, bestest, sweetest easiest flower vase on the planet.
You literally cannot mess up the arrangement with this.
It comes with glass vases all lined up in this metal container that holds them in place perfectly.
Just in case you needed a vase set like this, you can see one here.
It’s so versatilethe.
You can take out the mini vases out of the metal frame and use them one by one and line them up on a window sill or group them in a circle.
If you are having a party, you can group a couple of them on the table with some greenery and make easy centerpieces.
You can use the vase set just like it is. Here’s how to make a quick flower arrangement in five minutes.
How to Make a Quick Flower Arrangement

1. Start with grocery store flowers
Open up the flower packet and get your flowers ready for the arrangement. Those flowers are so happy to be out of the grocery store water bucket and home with you. Here are my best tips to make them last even longer:
- look for the freshest flowers at the store–watch out for wilted leaves and broken stems
- open the plastic and remove the rubber band
- cut the stems at a 45-degree angle which helps them to absorb water better
- remove all the leaves below the water line so the leaves don’t rot in the water
- make sure to add the flower food packet that comes with the arrangement to the water
- keep the water filled in the arrangement
- flowers last longer if you place them in the fridge overnight (there’s a reason you always see flowers in the fridge at the florist)
2. Fill vases with water
Add water to the vases.
I usually fill the vases about 3/4 of the way full.
Add ice-cold water. The stems of the flowers stay crisp and the cold water gives the arrangement a great start and helps the flowers last longer.
3. Fill the vases with flowers
I trimmed the stems to different lengths and separated out the colors and added them to the vases.
It’s that simple.
Here are a few tips to arrange the flowers in this vase:
- you can add a single stem to each vase for more of a modern look
- trim the flowers to different lengths to add visual interest
- mix up the colors and spread them out across the vases
- mix up the textures of the flowers too
- don’t forget the greenery—add leaves or stems to some of the vases to fill out the arrangement
And five minutes later?
Your arrangement looks like this.
Can you see why I was hopping up and down? Can you see why I was jumping around like a pogo sticker in the circus?
It’s not every day five minutes looks like a million bucks.
How’s the weather where you are?
It looks like spring around here. 🙂
I also love this vase set, too.
