- Select your flowers for your spring floral arrangement. I’ve outlined what I selected but feel free to mix it up with flowers that catch your eye.
- Create a mix of complementary colors and varieties or stick to one colour in various shades. Add greenery for texture and color.
- Select your vase based on the type of flowers you plan to use and the size and style of arrangement you want to create. I have used a mason style vase for this display. Charity shops are a great place to pick up vases, but this one was purchased from Not On The Highstreet.
- Remove any leaves that will sit below the water level of the vase and trim each stem at an angle.
- Add water and a small capful of bleach. This kills off any bacteria and keep the flowers fresh – you won’t have to change the water as often!
- I usually start by adding the focal flowers first, working in a circle and turning the vase as you go to make sure there are no gaps. I started this arrangement with three Roses (Ecuador Esperance)
- Build on the first flower selection with your soften flowers (white veronica and lisianthus)
- Then add your foliage to fill in the display. I have used some sprigs of Pink Wax Flower, Solidago Yellow Springs and Irish Eucalyptus.
I’ve added some images so you can recognise my flower choices, but aways go with colours you like. I wanted to create a wilder more relaxed display.
All flowers were purchased from Joesph M.Duffy & Sons Ltd – thanks to Joe for being so helpful.
Hopefully this was useful and has given you confidence to create your own spring floral display.
