Isn’t it sweet? A mini spring floral bouquet is a perfect way to tell someone special in your life “You Are Awesome”. I have a serious case of spring fever. It’s been a long winter in our neck of the woods. Lots of snow (awesome) with very cold temperatures (not so awesome) and we still have a couple of feet of snow in our yard. I am starting to really (really) look forward to some spring-like weather. One of my favorite things about spring is all the spring flowers. I just love them.

I’ve also been thinking about all the awesome people in our lives. Like the kids school teachers, coaches and instructors. Or the friends that are always there for us no matter what. Sometimes it’s nice to say a little thank you, at non-traditional times, just to show how much you appreciate their efforts and friendship throughout the whole year.

I love getting flowers, especially in the spring. Having flowers by the sink in my kitchen just brightens my day. So I’m putting together some mini spring floral bouquets for some of the special people in our lives, to say thank you for all they do for us and our kids, and hopefully to brighten their day too.

You can make these mini bouquets by picking up a couple of bunches of flowers the next time you are at the grocery store. Your local florist or market are also great places to get a wonderful selection of flowers but don’t discount the value and ease of those bunches at the grocery store. That’s where I picked up these…One bunch each of tulips, freesia, poms and pussy willow.

Flowers go a long way when making mini bouquets. You will need roughly 1 bunch of flowers for two – three mini bouquets. So, that means if you want four varieties of flowers and pick up one bunch of each you will be able to surprise about 10 people with a little bit of spring. If you don’t need to make that many then you can use the extra flowers to make some arrangements for your own home.

Along with the flowers I used washi tape, burlap and some jute to tie it all together.

I used one stem of each flower starting with the freesia. Then I added a cluster of poms, a stem of pussy willow and finally a single tulip.

Then I wrapped washi tape around the stems to hold them together.

The mini bouquets look lovely in a small jar or vase.

I wrapped mine in a 4″ x 6″ piece of burlap, tied some jute around it and added a tag that says it all.

So simple to make. So fun to receive.

I’m sure you have awesome people in your life who would love to receive these too.
