DIY Spring Floral Arrangement

I think we can all agree that a fresh bunch of flowers brightens up any room at home. Every so often, I get asked for my tips on how I create my displays. I am no expert, but enjoy choosing and styling flowers to brighten up the house. In this post, I want to share some tips with you to create your own spring display.

I often visit Smithfield and buy my flowers from Joe, who owns and runs Joseph M. Duffy & Sons Ltd. His grandfather auctioned flowers in Smithfield in the early 1900’s, when flowers were grown on the large estates around Ireland and sold by auction in Smithfield. Three generations on, they still sell excellent quality flowers whilst offering great value and friendly, knowledgeable advice.

Joe helped me select flowers for this arrangement and shared some tips and tricks to create the perfect DIY Spring floral display.

What you will need:

Flowers of choice –  have used the following:

Ecuador Rose Esperance

White Veronica

Solidago Yellow Springs

Lisianthus

Irish Eucalyptus

Pink Wax Flower

Vase

Shears

Lukewarm Water

Small capful of bleach

  1. 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.
  2. Create a mix of complementary colors and varieties or stick to one colour in various shades. Add greenery for texture and color.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove any leaves that will sit below the water level of the vase and trim each stem at an angle.
  5. 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!
  6. 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)
  7. Build on the first flower selection with your soften flowers (white veronica and lisianthus)
  8. 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.

    Always best to ask first if its ok to leave a link unless its to a url on the same site you are commenting on or a site with no ads. Examples: Wikipedia, Google or WordPress.org codex etc.
    The exceptions are when you are asked to do so by the post author, other comment authors or you have a resource to link to (other than your own domain) that is highly related to the post topic and adds more value to the post content. https://winbet99.org/ – 온라인카지노
