The floral trend still lives. Something about nature and the purity and imperfect nature of a flower makes us keen to add them into our bullet journals. They’re simple but elegant. Classic yet modern.
I find myself double-tapping floral layouts all the time on Instagram. But then again, I’m a bit of an extremist when it comes to florals. I’ve mentioned it before; I have floral everything. Leggings, blankets, tattoos, artwork, etc. If Chris would allow it, I would probably design our home with a floral accent wall in the main living space. Yeah, it’s serious.
So, today I want to share some of my favorite and most inspiring floral weekly spreads from around Instagram. From doodles to more realistic florals, they’re all included. So no matter your skill level or design preference, I hope you can find a weekly layout that will inspire you.
17 Inspiring Floral Weekly Spreads
I love the simplicity and summer vibes in this layout. With only one focal flower, this spread is clean and gorgeous. The added petals are a nice simple touch to spread color throughout the pages

This weekly spread is simple but stunning. The pastel color palette combined with the minimalistic flowers give it a feminine touch. Plus, keeping with the more minimal look will make it a more time-efficient spread.
How cute is this daisy spread? I love that the headers for each day are encompassed in a daisy. To create this floral header, simply draw out your flower in pencil first. Then, use your black pen to write in the days of the week. And lastly, trace over your pencil flower with a pen, avoding any areas where you have written your header.
Malin is one of my favorite people to follow for floral inspo. Her designs and arrangements are incredible and oh so detailed. It’s #floralporn.
What’s more beautiful than soft watercolor florals? These poppies are vibrant, colorful, and still soft and beautiful. I love that she placed them all throughout the spread to add color and keep your eyes moving.
These flowers in jars are so beautiful. I love the contrasting pastel and brighter pink arrangements. And while they are large enough to add a lot of interest to the pages, they are well placed and allow room for planning and productivity.
Of course, Liz from @bonjournal was going to make an appearance on this list. While I would love to take the title of Floral Queen, it is rightfully her’s to keep. This large and in charge flower takes the stage for this weekly, allowing the planning area to be kept minimal. I love the balance.
@journautical is another must-follow account for floral inspo. She does it all. From more simplistic floral doodles to large, detailed florals. Her floral weekly spreads are gold.
These line art florals are eye-catching and beautiful. I love how she added just a dash of color to one flower as the main focal point in this wildbloom design.
Masha was one of my first students in Rock Your Journal, but she quickly became a very good friend. Her work is always lovely, and she draws stunning florals with lots of fun colors. I love that she used blue in this spread; I feel like there aren’t a lot of blue floral spreads on Instagram. And this one speaks to my soul. The actual weekly planning area is rather minimalistic, but the flowers and pop of color give it a gorgeous creative touch.
With all the floral drawing and doodles in this post, it’s important to note that there are other ways to achieve floral greatness in your weekly spreads. In this example, she uses a combination of drawings and floral washi tape. You can also use stickers or stencils.
A little shameless self-promotion here. This is by far one of my favorite floral weekly spreads to date. I love drawing simple black and white line art flowers and think they add a clean and elegant appeal to any page.
Talk about an inspiring weekly layout? This wreath weekly is so creative and still functional. I love it! This floral approach is a little less about the flowers and little more about the leaves and greenery. Want to know how to draw simple wreaths? I have a post tutorial you can check out.
Another one of my greatest floral inspirations is @thejournaltea. She does small and dainty doodles as well as large and in charge focal pieces. If you’re looking for good floral inspiration, I highly recommend heading over and giving Sabina a follow.
I love how unstructured and open this spread is. And the slighly sketch-like flowers are the icing on the cake. They bring the piece together with a central focus, without overwhelming the page.
First off, I’m living for the color scheme of this weekly spread. But the repeating floral pattern is so fun and beautiful. If you want to take a stab at florals but don’t want to mess with layering flowers in an arrangement, this is a great option.
Number 17 is nothing short of amazing. The combination of minimalism with intricate design in this floral weekly spread creates a beautiful balance. And then you add the bright pop of yellow and it just makes the piece undeniably incredible.

As an adult, we sometimes forget that despite being out of school, we are still capable of learning new skills. And with the technologically advanced world we live in, it’s never been easier.

How to Draw Modern Florals
This book has become my go-to whenever I want to draw more realistic florals. All of the florals in this book are taught in a step-by-step format with illustrations and textual instruction for each step. I recommend this book all the time because I love Alli’s style and I think her book can work for anyone at any skill level.
