Roots: The $30 Challenge

Everyone has a set number (a.k.a the number that they don’t want to go over for a specific purchase ) in their head when they go shopping. When Chris and I entered Roots on Augusta, we were informed that they had a $10 off a purchase of $50 or more special. If I was arranging for an event that might have been enticing but this was a trip just for a fun. Basically, my husband felt bad that he was going on a three month work trip so he indulged my love for flowers. Well maybe it was just ten day trip but it seemed like a long time to be apart.

Anyway, I started working my way through the Flower Bar. Their flowers are locally sourced from Petal Pickers. I like to follow them on Instagram to see what they are bringing to the store each week. Check out my collage of the some of the stems available last week.

I didn’t really have a color scheme in mind. I just picked what I liked and tried to find complimentary blooms. With the Flower Bar, flowers are priced by the stem so I keep a running tally in my head as I peruse the section (almost) every weekend.

I decided to take a cue from the free form arrangement trend and do something a little more expressive. Snapdragons, tulips, poppies, hydrangea and ranunculus-oh my! I really liked the finished product. It kept me company for most of the time that my husband was out of town. After it started to wilt, I salvaged some stems and placed them in single bud vases in my kitchen window. Winning!
