It’s that beautiful time of year again when all the gorgeous spring flowers are blooming.
Many people with flower gardens might be wondering how to easily arrange some of their beauties and have them look like they were delivered by the florist.
This is actually a lot easier to achieve than you might think.
Take a look at the next flower arranging ideas for inspiration.
Keep it Short
Use a bouillon cup as the container for this romantic arrangement. Use just a few snippets of the following flowers to fill the cup to give a lush and diverse affect.
You can use just about anything you are growing in the garden but an English cottage garden look can be achieved by grabbing a small handful of pansies, tall fritillaries and ruffled cherry blossoms to place into the cup.
In order to keep the flower stems stable in the cup, first arrange them in your hands. Then, with a piece of string tie the stems together and trim. Now you can lay the bouquet of flowers against the lip of the cup.
Take the Tips
If you looking for a unique look other than the standard flower branch arrangement, snip a few shorter stem Kwanzan cherry tree blossoms but avoid cutting limbs from the tree.
Make sure the flowers have full petals to create this hot pink arrangement. Almost any tree or shrub in full bloom will work such as mock orange, apple or magnolia.
For this elegant de-constructed flower arrangement, use any group of bud vases.
Chose a variety of different heights of stems such as Balkan fritillary, skip Laurel and gavata tulip’s. You want to look for stems that have pristine leaves.
Make sure the stems do not have rough or jagged ends since they will be seen through the clear glass vases. Use a very sharp knife or pair of scissors to trim the end of the stems neatly.
Keep them Stable
Bright yellows, blues and vivid contrast are the look of many spring flowers.
For a different twist use a few different ceramic cups and bud vases to group white, blush pink and pale green shrubs and flowers in, such as viburnum, bridal-veil spiraea and anemones.
Make sure to use short flower-heads and tall branches to mix it up and create a dynamic looking arrangement.
Play with Scale
Fill one container with a one large petite blue Dutch hyacinth and the other with dwarf white grape hyacinths and sky blue Jacob’s ladder.
Keep in mind that bulb flowers that have been cut require a lot of water. Remember to change all of the water in the containers each day and fill with new.
