One of my tips to staying on a budget for a dinner party, and setting up a nice centerpiece was to arrange florals on your own with in expensive florals from the grocery store, or from around your yard.  I picked up these beautiful flowers while shopping at Trader Joe’s, and I knew they would be perfect for my Dinner Party colors.

I have honestly only tried my hand at arranging flowers a handful of times, so if I can do it, so can you!
I wanted the florals to have a little movement, but remain nice and low for guests to be able to see over them.

I used a jar from an arrangement I received in the past that had a plastic palm leaf in it, which is nice to hit the stems of the flowers.  You can also add small sliced lemons around the edges or limes.  I have done that once before, and it looked great!

I was pleased with how they turned out for being quite the amateur at arranging flowers.
