Like you, I’ve spent more time at home this fall than every before. I’ve cleaned closets, tried new recipes and done everything I can to cozy up the house. One thing that is a no-fail way to make my home even more warm and inviting is keeping fresh flowers in a focal spot.
Start with a custom order of your favorite fall flower. I adore these ranunculus I found on www.bulkwholesaleflowers.com. You’ll get 14 stems of ranunculus in your choice of colors (I like this warm fiery orang/red for fall), 2 stems of your choice of greenery, and 2 stems of your choice of fillers. It’s an easy drop down menu to make your selections.
Fabulous Florals sources locally grown ranunculus and when the season ends import them from other places in the world. Ranunculus are popular they have a small delicate flowers that open up into a perfect large size bloom.
Fabulous Florals will wrap the flowers in burlap and use raffia to tie them up. They arrived overnight in fabulous condition. You could, of course, gift them in the burlap and raffia, or step it up to make this little DIY vase for display in your home or as a gift.

- Carefully wrap the jar with the burlap and secure in place around the rim of the jar with a wide rubber band.
