Ah, spring. The season of optimism, renewal and rebirth. If you're like me, you probably find that your mood will often become synchronised with the season - longer days and the appearance of spring flowers tend to coincide with mood elevation.
What if you want to bring some of the joy and radiance of nature from outside into your home? The obvious answer: spring flowers and plants. The colours and fragrances of a bright and bountiful bouquet of seasonal springtime stems cannot fail to bring a heavy dose of beatific brilliance to any surroundings.
Consisting of blue iris mingled with white tulips and fresh greenery, the Blue Dew bouquet is a quintessenital springtime arrangement. Arrange these blooms in a vase and set upon a mantelpiece or windowsill - somewhere prominent where it will create an alluring focal point.
Tulips are a perennial springtime favourite and are perfect for introducing a spring mood to an interior space. The Mixed Tulips Bouquet is a fine example of the magical things that happen when you gather an assortment of different coloured stems of the same type. The aesthetic unity of the uniformly shaped bulb heads is offset by the excitement of a plethora of different bold and vibrant spring colours; oranges, yellows, purples and pinks. The finished result is hand-tied with fresh greenery to create a bountiful affair, worthy of any side table, coffee table or dining table.
All you literature lovers out there may already be familiar with Wordsworth's famous lines:
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
A simple arrangement of spring daffodils reinforces the old adage that sometimes less is more. It doesn't need to be anything too fancy or overly complicated, a gathering of 20 daffodils artfully arranged in a mason jar will totally transform your desk, coffee table or windowsill.
