I wasn’t going to make a Thanksgiving-themed arrangement this year but could not pass down a deal when I saw a bundle of alstroemerias for $1 at my local Krogers. To finish it up, I added some fresh rosemary from my garden.
4 bundles of alstroemerias (red, yellow and orange)

I must admit that making flower arrangements for baby boys are much harder than baby girls! This is probably because finding flowers in shades of blue can be a major challenge. Fear no more, here are 3 baby boy themed flower arrangements that will definitely be a hit. All flowers were purchased from my local Krogers in Wylie and Plano, Texas.
WRAPPED FLOWER BOUQUET, FLOWERS IN A BOX & WHITE FLOWERS IN A ROUND VASE
Optional: cellophane paper or use the mylar wrapping cover that was used to hold the flowers when purchased from the store.
2-3 paper towels soaked in water
1 sandwich size ziplock bag
water spray bottle
ASSEMBLING THE FLOWERS
Clean and remove all outer petals from roses and remove 50-75% of all leaves and foliage from all flower stems.
Set up your flower work space by sorting each flowers by same kind: roses with roses and carnations with carnations….etc
Start the bouquet by building a bottom foundation using the white alstroemerias and mini white carnations. I always use filler flowers for this step because I want the prettier flowers such as the roses to be the focal/center point.
Then select about 3-4 roses and stack them on top of the bottom layer ensuring to place the roses 1-2″ down from the very top of the previous layer. The goal is to build the bouquet by stacking and placing the flowers 1-2″ from the previous layer. (REFER TO EXAMPLES BELOW)
Keep repeating layers until you have used up all the flowers. The amount of flowers per layer will decrease as more and more layers get added.
The amount of layers will varies depending on the size of your bouquet and the amount of flowers you want to use within the bouquet.
When flowers are completely assembled, use either twine or rubber bands to hold the bouquet in place.
Now cut the flower stems evenly to your desire length. I like cutting mine 4″ to 6″ from the flower base of the final layer.
Soak about 2-4 paper towels in water. Wrapped the wet paper towels around all stems of the bouquet.
Use a sandwich size bag or larger and place stem of flowers wrapped in the wet towels inside the bag in order to keep the flowers hydrated.
Optional: You can add some wet floral foam to the flower stems 1st then wrap the wet paper towels around the floral foam covering the stems. The floral foam method will keep the flowers hydrated for longer periods of time.
Use several layers of clear tape to wrap and seal the top of the ziplog bag around the bouquet.
Optional: You can use clear cellophane paper or the same mylar bag from your flower purchase to make an initial flower wrap of the bouquet. This process reinforces the bouquet and catches any water that may leak out from the wet paper towels/floral foam.
Cut 2 pieces of the table vinyl cover into a square about 1.5 times the size of the bouquet. You can cut smaller layers if wrapping around the bouquet with multiple layers.
Cut 1 long narrow piece of kraft paper ranging about 12″ in width. Then cut an additional 3 smaller pieces about 6″ in width.
REFER TO EXAMPLES BELOW for paper cutting and placement order.
Wrap bouquet following the order sequin of the 2nd diagram above then use a ribbon to tie bouquet together.
Your wrapped flower bouquet is now complete.
For a final touch, spray flowers with fresh water from a bottle. This process help hydrates the flowers faster since the bouquet is not placed into a water filled vase.
#1.5 – LEFT OVER FLOWER CREATION
I created this arrangement from the left over white carnations.
