Rustic Spring Flower Arrangement

Transform a mix of grocery store blooms and the forsythia branches from your garden into a pretty spring-anticipating arrangement. The forsythia branches contribute texture and structure, but you might get lucky and force a bloom or two, too. For a full farmhouse arrangement, try leaving the woody forsythia cuttings a bit longer or trim them to various heights and insert among mixed blooms arranged in a weathered metal bucket.

Repurpose Grocery Story Flowers

This time of year, flowers that sing spring are readily available at your local market. Stop in and pick up a selection of spring flowers including daffodils and tulips.

Try Winter Forsythia in a Flower Arrangement

Even winter-bare forsythia can make a striking almost architectural addition to a flower arrangement. You might even get lucky and trigger some blooms when you bring the branches into a warm house.

A Simple Arrangement of Vibrant Blooms

A smaller, rounded arrangement is lovely for the bedside table. Trim the stems a few inches taller than the height of your vase to create a fuller arrangement of uniform height.

Arrange Flowers in Variously Sized Vessels

For a sleeker look, try adding a single stem to vintage bottles and cluster them together. This not only displays each stem for its beauty but adds height to the arrangement.

Try snipping the few good flowers that remain and adding them to a small bud vase or bottle. Placed on a kitchen windowsill, this mini-arrangement will be a bright contrast against the snow-covered ground.
