I just love it when beautiful and simple can both be used to describe a decorating project — and those are perfect words to describe today’s centerpiece arrangement!

There’s nothing like a trip to Trader Joe’s for a little flower styling inspiration. I do have to confess though that with so many pretty flowers available it can be hard to narrow down my choices!

This week’s Trader Joe’s shopping trip was on a particularly plentiful day in the flower department, but I managed to procure my flower selections and be on my way in a reasonable amount of time to head home to create a pretty late summer centerpiece!

Whether you have an abundance of summer blooms in your flower garden, you love to pick flowers at a local farm, or, like me, you’ve just completed your grocery shopping with an abundance of blooms in hand, styling your flowers in a grouping of small bud vases is a gorgeous and easy way to show off your creativity!

By combining bud vases, small glass bottles, or glass jars, these mini floral arrangements gathered together on a table will become the focal point of your room.

Every table needs a pretty centerpiece, and when you have the right vases and vessels, it makes styling them a breeze! 

Multi bud vase holder

One of my favorite pieces in my arsenal of vases and containers is this wonderful little multi bud vase holder! With its easy-to-arrange structure, creating a perfect centerpiece for your kitchen table or dining room is as simple as selecting your favorite blooms and placing them in the small bud vases. It provides so much flexibility for mixing and matching different flowers, experimenting with varying arrangement heights, and adding your favorite seasonal touches. 

It makes arranging flowers so easy, and I’m going to show you how I used it to create these gorgeous arrangements today.

​Creating an Easy Bud Vase Arrangement:

These arrangements certainly have a late summer vibe with the shades of gold, purple, magenta, and green flowers I chose.

When I create floral arrangements, I always remove the flowers from their wrapping, cutting away any rubber bands holding the stems together. Trader Joe’s is great about providing these wonderful buckets with a small amount of water for bringing the flowers home. I separate all of the flowers so it’s easy to grab what I need as I’m creating.

Add greenery filler to bud vase holder

Don’t forget to purchase filler greenery for creating your arrangements. I started with a layer of greenery filler and added to each bud vase.

Next, I add stock in this lovely magenta color.

​The beauty of creating arrangements with bud vases lies in their flexibility. You can keep the bud vase centerpieces simple with only a single stem, or add as many as the vases with hold.

This arrangement looks beautiful with simple greenery and the purple stock.

For more vibrant  late summer color, I added golden sunflowers to each vase. 

After adding the sunflowers I filled in each vase with a little more greenery to provide support for the heavy stems of the sunflowers.

I love the vibrant summer flowers on our kitchen table. The chartreuse greenery pops against the white walls, and plays well with the green and white botanical prints for a relaxed late August summer look.

I love the rustic, yet elegant look of this bud vase arrangement in a wooden dough bowl.

Simply gather 3 small bud vases. You can be creative and use any small glass cylinder vase or jar for this purpose.

Arrange the vases in a row in the middle of the dough bowl.

Begin by adding seeded eucalyptus to the vases. For a more romantic unstructured feel for this table centerpiece, allow the eucalyptus to spill over into the bowl in a random fashion. 

Add the roses to the vases, and then the magenta Veronica stems for a little more texture and charm.
