As a florist I am always looking for new inspiration which usually has me on Pinterest and browsing blogs all across the internet! Here are the top 5 flower arrangements that I would recommend making your table centerpiece this Spring!!!
#1 Tin Can Floral Arrangements
Any florist will tell you that what really sets off a flower arrangement is it’s vessel! In this instance the Wedding Chicks have put together an array of photos of floral arrangements in vintage tins! I stumble across vintage tins at thrift stores and during flea market/yard sale season all of the time! Achieving this look will not be hard to do!!! This particular can is filled with anemones!
#2 Floral Arrangements in Mason Jars!
I am a HUGE HUGE fan of mason jars in general! I love to collect them! This is also an item I find at thrift stores, flea markets, & yard sales! The perfect vessel for this type of arrangement is the coveted blue Bell mason jar! Blue really sets off any color of flower! Tie some twine or burlap around the jar for a country chic look!! I found this pin by Anna H over on Pinterest!
#3 Cut Tulips are a Spring Must Do!
Cut Tulips are absolutely gorgeous!! They are my favorite Spring Cut Flower! I recommend getting them when the buds are tight! They will last for weeks until they finally open up! I love this arrangement I found over on Lauren Conrad’s blog! It looks difficult but, it is really easy to achieve this look. Find an wide vase, clear and of any color! Then get you three bunches of tulips in any colors that you want! Wrap the stems about 2 inches from the bottom with floral tape… and then secure a large leaf of greenery around the bottom of each bunch, over the floral tape! the heads of the tulips should hold all three bunches in place. 🙂
#4 Hydrangeas in a tall vase!
Hydrangeas are a floral arrangement staple from Spring to Summer! If you are lucky enough to have a Hydrangea bush in your yard then you can have a beautiful arrangement any time you would like! 🙂 Blue hydrangeas are my favorite for arrangements. The only problem with hydrangeas is it is hard to get the best look unless you have a really tall vase! If you want to add other flowers in with your hydrangeas then fresh cut roses and cut alstromerias go very well with them!
#5 Raid a field! Your yard! The Side of the Road! 😉
I love wild flowers! I love dandelions, buttercups, forget-me-nots, daisies, & honeysuckles, etc! The thoughts of these takes me back to my childhood where I sat in the yard and tied together flower chains to wear around my neck! I found this over on Gardenista! Find you a small vase and pick those flowers!!!
