Welcoming Spring – Bring the Warm Spring Aesthetic into Your Home!

Looking forward to welcoming spring after a chilly winter? I know I do.

When the magnolia flowers and plum blossoms start to appear, they tell me that the winter season is drawing to a close. And that spring is just around the corner.

Such an exciting anticipation that the weather getting warmer and I see spring flowers start to bloom!

Welcoming spring with gorgeous flower arrangements is a great way to bring spring into your home.

In ikebana (the Japanese style of flower arranging), it is common practice to use flowers that are in season.

In this post, I will share some ideas and tips on how you can arrange your spring flower arrangements and bring the spring aesthetic into your home.

WELCOMing SPRING INTO YOUR HOME WITH FLOWERS

So as spring approaches, it is a wonderful opportunity to add branches of magnolia, plum and cherry blossoms in floral arrangements. The line of the branches provides nice movement and projects a feeling of expansiveness.

A suitable spot for these spring flower arrangements will be your hall table or console table at the hallway or foyer.

You can place them in a vase on their own; or arrange them with other in-season flowers such as peonies, tulips and chrysanthemums.

FLOWER CHOICES

If you’re not sure how to work different flower colours into any arrangement, you can arrange different flowers from the same colour family

Welcoming Spring

For instance in the first arrangement pictured above on the left, I placed the pink chrysanthemums together with pink cherry blossom branches. That way I didn’t have to think too much about balancing different colours in an arrangement. 

Instead of pink chrysanthemums, you could use pink peonies.

Alternatively white or cream-coloured flowers are always readily available and easy to work with especially for beginners to flower arranging

In the second arrangement, I combined white tulips with pink blossom arrangements.

White, ivory or cream flowers are usually an easy option as main flowers – they act as a neutral base to all other colours. 

Also smaller white flowers such as freesias can be used as filler flowers to lighten any flower arrangement that have bold or dark colours.

VASE CHOICES

For your spring flowers to truly be the “star of the show”, choose a plainer vase or container. That way your eye won’t be distracted by any patterns on the container.

As you can see in the examples above, I’ve used a grey concrete/cement container.

The proportion of the vase to the flower stems is approximately one-third or half.
