How to Decorate With Spring Flowers. Beautiful, Stylish Arrangements
Wish you had the know-how to make any bunch of spring flowers look elegant? With the right vase and a few guidelines, your inner arranger can finally bloom. Here are some lovely ideas about how to decorate with spring flowers, making artful combinations and arranging them in a stylish display.
Less is more when it comes to woody stems, like quince, cherry, and dogwood. Select just three or four sculptural specimens, and use a heavy oblong vase that’s about a third as tall as the branches. Aim for an asymmetrical spray so the branches reach rather than lean.
If you constrain tulips (or calla lilies or ranunculus) about two-thirds of the way up with a cylinder vase, the natural arc of their soft stems will take care of the arranging.
How to decorate with spring flowers. Mixing flowers
Mixing and matching spring flowers adds contrasting pops of color to any space. The fully bloomed flowers snipped in early spring, mid spring, and late spring vary, and it is easy to choose different types and sizes to create exciting arrangements. Mix colorful blooms together and divvy them up among a collection of different-sized vases. Stick to one color for vases to make a big impact.
How to decorate with spring flowers. Creative containers
To go beyond decorative vases, decorators sometimes use other clear options, such as mason jars and glasses, to capture the light sitting on a windowsill. A few glasses and mason jars used as vases for small branches and single flowers is an easy way to bring accent colors into a room or on to a windowsill.
Long-stemmed flowers in large jars create a rustic feel and are unique ornamental elements. Nothing says spring like a big bouquet of tulips in a clear container, which can instantly brighten up a room.
Flowers with soft colors like lilac and white are sure to have a soothing effect, even when used in small doses. White coffee cups or patterned cups, depending on the desired theme, work great as miniature vases for all spring flowers. Place them on tables, shelves, and bedroom dressers.
When looking for a vase substitute, it is fun to go as unique as possible with spring flowers. Watering cans are a unique deviation from traditional vases, and they are available in a variety of finishes.
