I love making beautiful flower arrangements with lots of colors and textures. But, sometimes I just need pretty and I need it FAST, especially during the holidays, when there’s so much to do and my creative juices aren’t always in overdrive. This is my fallback #1 tip to ensure pretty floral arrangements for any holiday table. The look is so stylish and gorgeous that even with plenty of time and an unlimited budget, you just may follow this exact same path.
So, what is it?
Buy lots of different flowers that are all the same color. No matter how you pair them, they work. It’s easy and provides a sense of continuity when you need several arrangements across your house or table. Plus, you can use this method to shop your local grocery store’s floral department (we shopped at Kroger) and have great results.
First off, I’m showing you Pinterest examples, and then we’ll get into real-life grocery store floral options and prove just how pretty this tactic really is!

Playing on this same idea of flowers in one color, check out the ones we made for a some dinner parties. One features white flowers and the other yellow.
So, now you have the lazy girls #1 tip to flower arranging: just pick flowers of the same color, and you can mark one more thing of your busy seasonal to-do list!
