10 Beautiful Spring Branch Displays
Wrap 1/4-inch hemp rope around the neck and handle of a watering can, place a few branches (Cleveland pear shown) inside with some water, and hang on a knocker to welcome guests. If desired, you can wrap the base of the can as an accent.
If a watering can on a door won't work at your house, consider placing the can inside an urn. Long forsythia branches create a showy greeting.
Try some crabapple branches inside. Place the blooms in a mix of vintage blue medicinal jars and Mason jars.
Play with vintage
Vintage soda bottles make for a playful arrangement when filled with different blossoms, such as apple, crabapple and forsythia branches. For added interest, shorten a branch or two to vary the heights.
Mix and match
Mix and match blooms and vessels (left to right: ornamental cherry, pear, dogwood and quince). Place on a console or in an entryway. The variation of sizes and colors makes the display more engaging
Create a casual centerpiece by placing branches (purple leaf plum shown) in vintage containers such as these watering cans. Unify the display atop a flea-market shutter.
Crate and bottles
Apple blossoms look sweet displayed in old milk bottles and a vintage crate.
Soft pussy willow branches nestled in a variety of green bottles create a naturally restful scene for a bath or a kitchen display.
Laboratory beakers or other clear containers show off magnolia blooms. Place against a white or empty wall to highlight the sculptural look of the delicate branches.
Mix a blooming branch with flowers from your garden. Redbuds partnered with grape hyacinths and hyacinths make a striking combo.
