Budget blooms to brighten your home

As much as we love fresh flowers, we may not always have the money to keep the flower orders coming in. That is, unless you know where to look for the best budget blooms this season! Sprucing up your home for spring does not need to cost an arm and a leg. Here are some great ways of putting flowers to use in your home and how to save more than you knew you could.

Seasonal flower bouquets

When flowers are in season, they are usually a fair amount cheaper than when they need to be imported or specially cultivated. The lower the cost to grow them, the cheaper they will be. This makes seasonal flowers the ideal choice in budget blooms. If you are not sure which flowers are currently in season, you can ask your favourite florist for some advice. Remember, even if a bouquet consists of both seasonal flowers and blooms that are not in season at this time, you can still save quite a bit of money.

Flower deals

Florists love promoting their business and products by hosting sales. You don't have to wait for days like Black Friday to make your move. All you need to do is look for budget blooms in the deals or cheap flowers section. This is where you will find the greatest flowers at the most affordable prices.

Upgrade your bouquet

Something that many people do not realise is the fact that bouquets are available in various different sizes. In other words, you can take your pick from at least two or three size options. The larger the bouquet, the more stems it will include. Now, while it might sound like a good idea to order a smaller bouquet, you should consider upgrading to a larger one. Large bouquets can often be split up to create two flower displays. Or, at the very least, you could remove a few stems and create bud arrangements for smaller rooms in your home. These larger bouquets are still considered budget blooms because they give you the opportunity to create several arrangements with just one bouquet.

Flower subscriptions

For those who are looking for fresh flowers to be delivered on a regular basis, you cannot go wrong with a flower subscription. These subscriptions are available for different periods of time. The longer your subscription, the cheaper you flowers will be at the end of the day. Of course, if you want to test the system, you could always opt for a shorter trial period and then place an order for a longer subscription at a later stage. These budget blooms will arrive regularly so your home will always have a gorgeous bouquet for you to show off.

Silk flowers

Finally, let's not forget about silk flower arrangements. If you want flowers that will earn their keep, these budget blooms are for you. Just like fresh flowers, they should be kept away from heat and direct sunlight. By taking proper care of your silk blooms, you will ensure that they will stay beautiful for that much longer.

There you have it! A few great tips to help you find the best budget blooms money can buy. Remember, just because your flowers are past their prime does not mean that they are no longer beautiful. You can still use them to make pressed flowers, dried flowers or even potpourri. Apply some floral scents to the potpourri and you will continue to fill your home with an amazing sweet smell.
