Have you ever received flowers that you didn't really love? It's always the thought that counts but now you have a bouquet of flowers that hurts your eyes to look at. Instead of dropping it into a vase and waiting for it to die why not change it up and turn it into something you can enjoy. Here are a few tips on how to turn that ugly flower bouquet into something more elegant. 

All flowers are beautiful! Mother Nature is an amazing and we appreciate each and every bloom that springs into new life. However, there are certain color combinations or flower combinations that aren't aesthetically pleasing. With Valentine's Day almost a month away we wanted to arm you with a few tricks.

1. Take It Apart

Take that mixed flower bouquet and separate each of the individual stems and group them into a single same type flower. Create smaller bouquets of all roses, all tulips, etc. Put them into smaller vases that you love. Now you have several vases with arrangements perfectly sized for a bathroom, bedside table or kitchen counter.

2. Bud Vases

Create a stronger and more luxurious look by placing one stem into a small bud vase and lining a table or ledge with several bud vases of the same flower and color. Bud vases are always a great way to stretch a budget. Simple clear glass vases can look really chic.

3. Add Greenery

Filling a vase with greenery first and then adding your flowers is always an easy way to fill out a bouquet. Greenery adds support, can be the bridge between making different color combinations look less shocking, and can make a bouquet feel more natural.

4. Floating Flowers

A bowl filled with floating flowers can look refined. If you have a beautiful low clear glass,  copper or black bowl you can cut the stems of your flowers and float the flower heads in a bowl. This instantly turns those cheap stems into a stylish floral design. 

5. Color Blocking

Monochromatic blooms are always a good idea. Group same colored flowers or flowers in the same color family together.
