Spring Flower Styling
Living flowers add color and cheer to any room, making them one of my favorite decorative accessories. Traditionally, bouquets are enjoyed for special occasions – Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, weddings and birthdays – and very often come from a local florist shop. With inexpensive seasonal blooms available at many markets and grocery stores, a trend for flower arranging is coming back into vogue.
From a DIY perspective, it is fun to experiment with different flower pairings to see what works and what doesn’t For those who want more education and are willing to spend the time and money, garden shops and florists also offer classes to help enthusiasts create unique and professional looking arrangements.
The tools you need for flower arranging are simple: It is good to start with a collection of interesting vases in various shapes, sizes, styles and colors. They can be anything from formal crystal to vintage jars to yard sale finds—anything you find appealing. Next, it is good to have a good pair of garden shears for cutting thick or long stems to varying heights. And the most important item – an abundant quantity of fresh flowers from your local source! With a little imagination and inspiration, your arrangements can look just as good as the store-bought ones!
