Happy Spring to you! A few days ago, I went out in my yard with my hand pruning shears and came back with cuttings from my redbud tree, forsythia bush, and ornamental cherry tree. What resulted were these stunning flowering branch cuttings in a vase.
I call it a “vase,” in this arrangement, but it’s really a ceramic teapot that I’ve used many times for holding cut flowers.
Don’t be afraid to try different receptacles for floral displays, such as your seldom-used teapots, pretty recylced jars, or even wine bottles.
I really love making informal arrangements like this one, using just my sense of intuition as to what colors to combine and how to place the various branches.
Welcome spring by bringing some of it into your home and making a simple but striking floral arrangement!
Ah, spring…the perfect time of year for an arrangement of flowering branch cuttings in a vase.
