Cheery + Charming

If you’re hosting or headed to a house warming, dripping paint bucket floral arrangements might be the perfect fit. Pick up an empty aluminum paint bucket from the home improvement store, lay out a drop cloth along a long, flat surface, then use a turkey baster to add a dripping effect from the opening of the bucket to the bottom. Let the paint dry for about three to four hours, then use a utility knife to cut any paint buildup from the drop cloth.

Rustic Watering Can Arrangements

Bring the act of gardening to the table by arranging white flowers in weathered watering cans (look at thrift stores and flea markets.) Tulips are a great choice, as they’re affordable and evoke a casual-yet-elegant feeling.

Pitcher Perfect

This uncomplicated, freshly-picked arrangement captures the lush, natural abundance of spring. Tulips and billy balls are especially beautiful tucked into a simple pitcher with bright pink peonies, but you can use whatever you have in your garden.

Celebrate Spring With a Vibrant Bouquet

The harmonious pinks and oranges of this vibrant bouquet sing with intensity. This arrangement makes a gorgeous Mother's Day gift or sensational centerpiece.

Restful Shades

Wake up to a soothing bedside arrangement. Designer Lori Dennis used a glass vase filled with hyacinth and white tulips to lend this restful space a touch of spring.

Unarranged Arrangements

Arranging flowers needn't be intimidating or complicated. Simply choose three flowers in complementary colors and shapes. Cut stems so flowers sit about two inches above the top of container, remove all leaves that will fall below the water line, and bunch flowers together in a tight, mounded arrangement. To keep arrangements fresh, trim the ends and change the water every few days. Typically, most arrangements last about a week or two.

A Visually Striking Springtime

This arrangement of daffodils and kumquats brings a fresh, vibrant optical illusion to any kitchen table, windowsill or even bathroom. Using a low cake stand or footed bowl makes this professional-looking display simple to create.

Make Your Own Fruit and Floral Centerpiece

Add a Little Zest

Citrus halves add an unexpected bit of color to this vibrant, party-worthy arrangement. Add the cut lemons, limes or oranges to your bouquet just before guests arrive so they will look fresh. Adorn the base of each vase with mounded fresh citrus.

Spring Fling

Stagger small and large antique bottles inside an old wooden tool box and fill with your yard's most vibrant spring wildflowers.

Clean and Fresh

Ideal for the kitchen or bathroom, a silver vase filled with pastel-colored flowers can give a room a clean, fresh look.
