Fresh Ideas for Displaying Spring Flowers

While I enjoy having vases of flowers in my apartment year round, I especially look forward to springtime, when some of the most beautiful flowers are in bloom. My moms garden is always filled with colorful flowers and I love bringing a bunch home with me whenever I visit. I also like picking up flowers at our local farmer's market...or even the grocery store! This season, instead of putting flowers in just any old glass vase, why not display them in a new way? Here are some simple ideas and quick DIY tips on creative ways to showcase your fresh blooms.

  1. One of the most elegant bridal showers I ever attended featured take home arrangements of a single pink rose. The organizers used small clear bottles in varying shapes and heights. Just goes to show that even a simple presentation using unexpected vessels can go a long way.

  2. Great inspiration! I'm planning on spray painting glass jars and vases silver for a centerpiece grouping for my birthday book club :). I love fresh flowers!

  3. Beautiful ideas :) especially the first one :) thanks for sharing!


  4. I agree, fresh flowers make all the difference in the world!

  5. Ooooh, thanks for reminding me about my mixed collection of teacups...can't wait to use them for flowers!
