Spring is approaching, which means that many of you might be wondering how you can incorporate the season’s blooms into your home. We’re going to show you exactly how. We’ve put together an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to making a beautiful spring bouquet. To get started, you need to gather your favorite spring flowers and conjure up a bit of imagination. Then, dive in to your fresh spring bouquet. While you’re making one for yourself, think about making an arrangement for a friend too. A lovely bouquet with brilliant blossoms could be exactly what someone needs to have the spirits lifted or a day made better.
Choosing Your Flowers
As you get started creating your spring bouquet, you’ll want to pick out some of your favorite seasonal blossoms, or simply choose some that you’ve felt inspired to include in your arrangement. Depending on where you live, you might be able to find some amazing varietals at a local farmer’s market. But, you can also shop for your flowers at a flower mart, in a grocery store, or in your own back yard. There isn’t a science behind choosing the flowers for your bouquet. Floral arranging is an art, and a subjective one at that. So, go ahead and opt for whatever seems like it would be best for you.
Ideas for Color
Spring bouquets often turn out stunning when they’re crafted according to the rules of the color wheel. This means that you can use the color wheel as a guide to help you combine colors of flowers, complimentary and contrasting, to make certain blooms pop or come together synchronous

A Dramatic Display?
If you want to create a dramatic spring arrangement, pair colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. Go for yellow and purple, red and green, or orange and purple. You’ll end up with a bold spring bouquet that’s as exquisite as natural can be during the season.
Harmony and Balance
If you want a spring bouquet that is harmonious and in balance, choose hues that sit next to each other on the color wheel. Put shades like purple and blue together, or go for oranges and pinks in a mix. Green is considered a neutral color when you’re arranging flowers, since it’s the color of most blossoms’ foliage, so you can use hues of this color anywhere and anytime.
These instructions should get you to a good start with your spring bouquet, but they’re not rigid rules by any means. Spring is about finding newness where we’ve become accustomed to a certain situation, so pull inspiration from wherever you’re lead to find it and simply create. If you find yourself sitting around wondering what flowers to choose, and not making progress in your decision, consider some traditional spring blooms and then play around with their arrangement. You might opt for daffodils, ranunculus, daisies, poppies, tulips, irises, and even orchids. When it’s time to put your flowers into a container or other binding material, again, be creative and play around with various vases, paper wraps, and even unorthodox objects. When you choose from the heart throughout your spring floral arranging process, and throughout your life, you really won’t be able to go wrong.
