How To: Create a Spring Floral Centerpiece

A combination of spring-fresh branches and bulbs creates a uniquely charming centerpiece. Gather the following materials. Arrange wedges of moistened floral foam along the bottom edge of a container. We used a watertight vintage washtub, but any large container will work. Next, arrange three small pots planted with flowering bulbs such as these pink hyacinths. The floral foam will stabilize the post in the tub. Insert flowering branches (such as pussy willow or quince) into the foam to stand around the perimeter of the tub. Finish the trellis like cage by tying the tips of all the branches together at the top using twine or ribbon. Cover the base of the arrangement with preserved moss. Set your beautiful display in a place out of direct sunlight for weeks of enjoyment.
