3 Unique and Bright Spring Flower Arrangements
Is there any decor that shouts “spring” from the rooftops quite like an arrangement of fresh, seasonal flowers? These three spring flower arrangement ideas will provide a great dose of inspiration to make your spring floral displays even more eye-catching and beautiful. We’ve focused on flowers that are easy to find both at farmers’ markets and florist shops - or in your very own backyard. You can even plan ahead for some of these arrangements by planting spring-blooming bulbs while the weather is still cool!
Stylish Tulip Color Gradient
Ombre color gradients look stunning, and tulips happen to be some of the most color-gradient-friendly flowers around. You can combine these two elements into a variety of unique spring flower ideas, including a clean, modern display of minimalistic tulip bouquets in different shades of the same color. From deep red to light pink or dark burgundy to pale lavender, you can make a lovely multi-vase arrangement with groups of different tulips.
Start by picking out three or more bunches of tulips in a range of different shades. You can even present a color progression such as yellow to orange to red rather than a gradient. The choice is yours, but whatever combination you decide on, the display looks great when you present it as a cohesive color grouping. You can simply create individual bouquet displays of each color in individual vases. Vase fillers and flower arranging tools can make it easier to keep your tulip bouquets in place. Tulips do tend to droop when they’re cut, but you can use the tallest vases available and choose fresh, tightly wrapped flowers.
Dazzling Daffodil Display
While the familiar yellow variety is perhaps the most well-known, there are actually hundreds of varieties of daffodils. From gigantic all-white blossoms to tiny clusters of orange and peach hues, there are enough different daffodil types for you to make a bright arrangement without adding any other kinds of flowers. Even just three or four different kinds of daffodils on display together can make for a multicolored, multi-textured arrangement that celebrates one of the season’s most iconic flowers.
Daffodils are included in a lot of mixed-blossom spring flower arrangement ideas, but when they’re presented on their own, it’s often in a simple and sweet display. To make your daffodil display stand out, use a footed bowl instead of a vase. With the help of a flower frog or a carefully arranged grid of masking tape, you can then use your footed bowl to build up a stunning heap of daffodils in a variety of different sizes, colors and textures. If you want to really maximize the look, try to pack the flowers in so the bowl looks like it’s overflowing with blossoms.
Dramatic Flowering Branches
From dogwoods to cherry blossoms, flowering trees show off their blooms in full force during spring months. This makes outdoor settings all the more beautiful, and you can bring some of this beauty indoors by clipping branches off of the flowering trees in your yard and using them as part of a high-impact, high-drama floral display. You can easily choose some small branches to use with a petite vase, but if you want to really go all-out for this display, opt for a gigantic glass jug or vase that’s heavy and strong enough to provide the support your branches need. If you don’t have any flowering trees in your yard, local florists, farmers’ markets and even some grocery stores are likely to have some flowering branches you can use.
Look for branches that have open blooms and a good quantity of unopened buds so your arrangement lasts awhile. It’s also a good idea to cut or crush the end of the cut branch to make it easier for the branches to absorb water. This will keep your flowering tree branches alive and blooming for days at a time. While you can arrange your cut flowering tree branches with other types of flowers, arranging a few branches together with no other flowers creates a dramatic effect that’s as simple as it is chic, too.
