Spring Ahead with These Floral Arrangement Tips

Spring is the perfect time for floral arrangements. In order to make the most of spring’s most beautiful offerings you’re going to need some tips.

All One Color

When you’re purchasing flowers, you should buy lots of different flowers that are all the same color. This means no matter how you pair them throughout your arrangements, you’ll be getting a sense of continuity. You may not think of continuity, but when you’re displaying them throughout your home, they should be cohesive and similar. This is especially helpful if you’re purchasing flowers at the local grocery store and want great results.

Long Stems

The first thing you might be tempted to do is cut the stems to an appropriate length to extend the life of the flowers. Why not try cutting several stems long and letting them spread out wide along the edge of your arrangement? In a glass vase, the stems create an interesting look that adds a little something extra to whatever flowers you have chosen. Keeping stems on the longer side can help to emphasis the height of a skinny vase too.

Baby’s Breath = Simplicity

If you’re not sure where to begin with floral arrangements, why not try this simple tip? Take a few mason jars and add a few sprigs of baby’s breath. This simple arrangement brings rustic décor to life and isn’t overwhelming. If you’re looking to add a little color and texture, try adding sprigs of lavender to the baby’s breath and wrapping the jars with burlap strips.

Bold Colors

If you’re a little more confident in your floral arrangement skills, try taking a few bold flowers and mixing them into a base arrangement of white and green. The special pop of color will be a beautiful touch to a classic combination. Take it one step further by placing the arrangement in a reclaimed wood container.

Reclaimed Wood

Speaking of reclaimed wood, why not utilize things you might have lying around to add extra character to your floral arrangements? Fill a wooden crate with your favorite spring flowers to make a rustic, spring centerpiece for your home. This eye-catching arrangement is filled with personality and uses one of the key components of rustic décor: reclaimed materials.


If you’re not sure you can keep floral arrangements alive too long or just aren’t too much of a floral person, grab some succulents. Succulents are easy to take care of and can be kept in fun containers that add character to your home. To create a succulent arrangement, take a reclaimed wood box, a few types of succulents, and a couple of dainty pink flowers. Arrange them however you would like and there you have a unique floral arrangement.

Unique Vases

So far you’ve heard us mention reclaimed wood, but why not utilize other reclaimed materials you might have lying around? Try arranging your floral arrangements in an old watering can or tin pail. These items you might have just laying around often go unused or just sit around. These items can be used to spark joy and inspire your spring floral arrangements. Plus you’ll be breathing new life into something you love.
