Sure, you'll enjoy those gorgeous blooming branches in your yard, but why not snip a few to bring the beauty of the season indoors or to your front porch too? Here are 6 stylish ways to display the delicate blossoms of spring.
This centerpiece uses a watering can in a large saucer mounded with soil and covered with moss to create a garden feel. Sprigs of violas and branches of flowering almond complete the piece. Tip: When gathering moss for the saucer, lift it in sheets rather than in clumps to create a smoother surface.
This purpleleaf-plum centerpiece works well for casual luncheons and parties. To make it, put an old narrow shutter in the center of the table and use it as a runner. Set three watering cans on top, with the largest in the center, and arrange a few flowering stems in each.
For late-winter or early spring color, top garden urns with cheery forsythia in galvanized watering cans. Tip: by regularly cutting stems and forcing branches to bloom indoors, you can enjoy flowers weeks ahead of nature's schedule!
