We’ve been waiting for spring to, well, spring. And so has in-house stylist Meghan Guthrie, who quickly made a beeline to the flower market and put together this deconstructed display of spring flowers that will brighten up any table or counter.
“Spring is all about fresh starts. It’s also a time when you want to keep things simple and lighthearted,” says Meghan. “So for this arrangement, I chose single stems and used different vintage glass bottles I had as a way to really highlight the silhouettes of classic spring flowers.”
Any grouping of spring flowers will work, which is “the beauty of it,” says Meghan. “Daffodils are synonymous with early spring, so I went with a variety of them—double-headed, Sentinel, Thalia, and Barrett Browning. They’re also hardy and last a long time. Just remember to change the water every three days.”
If daffodils aren’t your style, try using stems of tulips, roses, anemones, or poppies. “I like a spring palette of oranges, yellows, and whites,” says Meghan. “There was an amazing orange tulip at the market that I couldn’t pass up, so I just mixed it in with the daffodils. It’s a look that’s simple, romantic, and airy.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Meghan’s tip: Use vessels of varying sizes and styles. Then make sure to cut each stem so that the flower stands about 2″ above the rim, which gives the grouping a pretty and layered look.
