Spring Centerpiece: Beautiful Spring Bouquet

Beautiful Spring Bouquet

southernliving.com

Elevate Your Flowers | For lush arrangements that impress, place flowers on footed dessert stands. To make, place a block of florist foam in a large, shallow bowl that has a slightly smaller circumference than the stand. Add flowers to create a soft dome shape, keeping some stems longer for natural asymmetry.

Beautiful Spring Bouquet | Combining fresh roses, peonies, and hyacinths in exciting new ways allows us to enjoy their beauty each day. Fashion this delightful bouquet as a centerpiece whenever company's coming or any time you're ready for a wonderful treat.

Hyacinths In Bloom | Cruise the aisles of your favorite garden center to find a variety of bulbs forced and ready to display. Blooming weeks before their in-ground counterparts, these much-anticipated blossoms lift our spirits and brighten our homes. To get the look shown here, protect a holiday punch bowl with a plastic container, then pack in a dozen hyacinths preplanted in soil. Lightly water, and top with moss.

Sunny Bouquets | These fiery blooms stand up to our August scorchers. For this display, we snipped dahlia and dahlia buds, lantana, and zinnia to form a loose cluster. Yellow Billy buttons and calendula from a local florist round out the mix. Bonus: Including yet-to-bloom buds ensures an arrangement with staying power.

Backyard Blooms | These cheery blooms are easy to grow, require minimal care once established, and yield plenty of flowers for cutting. For quick arranging into a casual bouquet, like the one shown here, place large sunflowers in container first. Then add cockscombs, a great filler that provides texture. Tuck in as many zinnia blooms as possible and finish with small gomphrenas flowers to accent.

Embrace the Blues | To create this arrangement, we used billowy hydrangeas, plumbagos, cornflowers, and scabiosas for visual heft. We then filled in with salvias, cinerarias, and 'Techno Heat' lobelias to add texture. The result? A casual centerpiece with a vibrant blue palette that makes for a tranquil focal point.

    When I graduated from Nursing School, I was young and dumb... I thought I was so rich finally making decent money. I promised myself I would always have fresh flowers in my house. I absolutely adore flowers...

    Love the hydrangea idea. Those smell so good and bring so many great memories to my mind. I was thinking also that if you did the flowers in a ring you could add something tall in the middle ... depends on where you might want to put it.

    I worked in some magnolia blossoms at their peak for the perfume when decorating for the parents bridal reception following a wedding. It's hard to go home after all the festivities, so the parents just hung out at my house with bathing suits and cocktails.

Mini arrangements can have just as much impact. Use silver serving pieces as petite vases for individual blooms like dahlias, lambs' ears, drumsticks, yarrow, and artemisia leaves.
