Grocery Store Flower Challenge

HGTV Magazine sent 10 HGTV stars to the supermarket to pick their favorite blooms and arrange them in a creative container.

Bright Bouquet

"I like a combo of mini carnations and spray roses in bright colors like red, yellow and orange. Mix lots of them together in a metal champagne bucket," says Cortney Novogratz, Home By Novogratz.

Carrot Top Hydrangeas

"Try carrot tops: Clip a bundle from two bunches of carrots, add hydrangeas and place them loosely in an apothecary jar," says Casey Noble, Design on a Dime.

Sophisticated Trio

"These three flowers always look sophisticated: white tulips, white roses (the more open, the better) and Casablanca lilies. Arrange eight to 10 of each in a colored enamel pitcher or vase. To prevent the flowers from looking too wedding-y, keep the blooms kind of messy and asymmetrical," says Emily Henderson, Secrets From a Stylist.

Gerbera Daisies

"Soak empty Orangina bottles in warm water, then peel off the labels and put a gerbera daisy in each bottle. I like to line them up down a table," says Monica Pedersen, HGTV Dream Home.

Contrasting Colors

"Fill a porcelain crock with a full bundle of orange roses and purple statice cut so the blooms are just above the rim. Add a few orange calla lilies snipped a little taller than the other flowers," says Meg Caswell, Meg's Great Rooms.

Rosemary Carnations

"Take a bunch of white carnations, remove the leaves, then cut the stems down to a few inches. Add fresh rosemary and cluster them tightly in small jars set inside vintage tea tins," says Danielle Colding, Shop This Room.

Red & White

"My no-fail bouquet: red roses with a border of white roses in a mercury-glass vase. You could even add a few more white ones in the middle, slightly raised," says David Bromstad, HGTV Design Star.

Stripped Alstroemeria

"Put a dozen alstroemeria with the leaves stripped off in a tall white lacquer container. Stick with one color, then add stems of lemon leaf, which is often used as filler in premade bouquets," says Taniya Nayak, House Hunters on Vacation.

Spider Mums

"Spider mums feel exotic. Fill a low cube vase with river rocks, then stick a single bloom cut very short in the middle," says Vern Yip, HGTV Design Star.

Rose & Waxflower

"I love the beautiful simplicity of yellow roses and purple waxflower in a mason jar filled about three fourths with water. It makes a gorgeous country-style arrangement," says Amie Sikes, Junk Gypsies.
