How to Upgrade a Grocery Store Fall Bouquet with Foraged Fall Greenery

Upgrade a basic grocery store fall bouquet using forage fall greenery to create a beautiful fall floral arrangement on a budget.

I can hardly believe that this coming weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving already.  The weeks have been flying by since going back to school and it’s already the second week of October!  The last few days we’ve had beautiful, sunny, crisp and clear perfect fall days and it’s reminded me of all things good about fall. Although we won’t be having a big family dinner this year due to increasing precautions around COVID, we will mark the holiday with a nice family dinner.  Even if it only ends up being the four of us, it’s nice to set the stage for a special holiday meal by setting a beautiful table, beginning with the centrepiece.

I am also sharing some of my previous fall centrepiece ideas and joining some friends who are sharing their fall floral centrepieces today as well! Be sure to check the bottom of this post for the links to their ideas.

I recently picked up an inexpensive grocery store bouquet (under $10 to be exact!) and turned it into a dramatic, fall floral centerpiece using foraged fall leaves and branches from around our cabin’s property.

Here is what I started with….

Yellow and purple store bought flowers.

Then I went and foraged and cut some pretty fall greenery and found some interesting twigs…

Foraged leaves laid out.

I layered the greenery in my large, white ceramic vase…

And added in the grocery store flowers.

Although not a traditional fall floral centrepiece, I love the drama of it and think the rustic beauty of it is perfect for the season.  I mean, what is more rustically beautifully fall than Maple leaves turning colour.  One day I dream of seeing the East Coast with all of the glorious fall colours on the the trees, but for now I’ll have to content myself with smaller tokens of fall’s beautiful glory.

As I mentioned, today I’m joined by some of my talented blogging friends who are also sharing their fall floral arrangement DIYS and ideas. Be sure to check out their posts by clicking on the links below the images.
