This last weekend I volunteered to make three flower arrangements for my nieces graduation reception. I knew that I would want to recycle some of the gorgeous paper gardenias and the mix of plum, raspberry and mauve mums that I have saved from a guest post to coordinate with her plum graduation outfit. I gathered fresh cut camellia branches from my yard, cut long stemmed mint from my sister’s garden and added some of the fresh cut lavender we found at a local lavender farm. The results were gorgeous and very fragrant at the afternoon gathering. Below I give you a step-by-step on how I created these frugalista bouquets. Later this week I will share the printable templates for the paper mums. Enjoy! ~ Lia
