Bring the Spring in!

As my garden is slowly awakening, I cannot resist bringing some happy blooms indoor.

A Spring arrangement with flowers from the borders is the easiest to put together. Here are 9 inspirations for simple bouquets in vintage pitchers or original containers.

1- Tulips with a rustic twist

A bunch of tulips in a pretty antique pitcher is instant farmhouse charm. Choose or cut long stems diagonally and place in cold water as soon as possible. Match a pretty throw for the cooler mornings at the breakfast table.

2- A Mason jar is all it takes

Short-stemmed or broken tulips find their way in a pretty vintage canning jar on a window sill.

3- Tulips can be fancy too

Choose a tall vase. Insert a plastic container fitting the top of the vase neck to avoid the tulips falling to the bottom. A shaker for protein mix is perfect in most of my vases. To provide more stability, use a kenzan or pieces of floral moss in the shaker.

4- Match your surrounding decor

A match between the colors of tulips and a cute custom pillow from vintage fabric emphasizes the springtime look.

5- Add stems from blooming shrubs

Lilacs, crabapples or other Spring flowering shrubs make the perfect companions to bulbs in a a large ironstone pitcher.

6- Tea anyone? Be creative with containers

Once you make sure the container is waterproof, anything can be used for a darling arrangement.

7- More is beautiful

At the end of the blooming season, it’s ok to ransack the borders for a magistral creation. Here, a smaller bucket is inserted in the crock and filled with recycled pieces of floral mosses. The crabapple stems are complementary to the two shades of pink tulips.

8- Get the sun in! Daffodils are there year after year!

Daffodils are resilient and come back year after year. Because the stems are softer, insert them artfully through chicken wire shaped to fit in a pitcher.

9- Hyacinths: they may be small in size but big in fragrance

Staking hyacinths after a rain is a painstaking task. I prefer to cut a few at a time. My fun is to find the cutest little vase.
