Quick Tips for a Spring Bouquet

Here are some tips from Southern Living's Gaye Drummond on how to easily create beautiful spring bouquets.

  • Use a plentiful amount of blossoms and greenery, and combine plant materials with different colors, textures, and shapes. Use fern fronds, ivy, moss, and eucalyptus to frame the flowers and to fill out arrangements.
  • Look for blooms with unbruised leaves and buds that are just starting to open. Recut all stems, and stand them in a mixture of cool water and flower preservative until it’s time to arrange them.
  • Balance the lushness of your arrangements with simple containers such as baskets, clay pots, glass vases, and iron urns.
  • Our Orrefors and Simon Pearce vases are the perfect compliment to your spring flowers.
