We have super low sofas in our living room. I love to give the room pops of color and height with tall floral arrangements like the one below. In this post, I detail how to put together a tall spring floral arrangement in no time, and with little fuss.
These colorful and tiny beauties are Texas yarrow. They come in a variety of color, and are inexpensive when in season. If these aren’t available, snag something similar like queen Anne’s lace or chamomile daisies.
Standard pink tulips and blush Parrot tulips shine in this arrangement. Parrot Tulips have feathery-edged, scalloped blooms, and come in a variety of colors. They are a little pricier than a standard bunch of tulips, so feel free to sub in regular ones instead.
Bells of Ireland give this arrangement height. These are one of my all-time favorite flowers. They are so unique, and tend to be fairly hearty when properly cared for. Curly willow or cherry blossom branches would be a great substitute, too.
Assembling This Tall Spring Floral Arrangement
Start by picking a medium sized vase like the one shown. Make sure it’s sturdy enough to hold up those tall Bells of Ireland. Next, snip an inch of the bottom of the bells of Ireland at an angle. Place those in the vase.
Then, clean up the small wildflowers. Trim the stems so they sit about one inch above the lip of the vase. I recommend cleaning up any leaves that are low on the stems. This will help the water and stems stay fresh for longer. While holding the bells of Ireland in the center of the vase, gently tuck the wildflowers around the bells of Ireland. Try to get them evenly distributed so the bells of Ireland stand in the center.
Finally, trim the tulip stems and remove any low leaves. Tuck one color of the tulips between the wildflowers and lip of the vase. Then, tuck five or so of the second color just around the bottom of the bells of Ireland. Fill up the vase with room-temperature water, and you’re all set.
Caring for The Arrangement
It’s best to change the water daily. To do so, firmly grip all of the stems just above the lip of the vase. Remove the flowers, and while holding them, dump the water and fill the vase with fresh water. It’s helpful to have someone get fresh water for you, as to not disturb the arrangement. Then gently put the flowers back in the vase.
