The prettiest ways to arrange flowers this spring

Skip the large bouquet in favour of a whimsical cluster of blooms.


Floral designer Alison Westlake, owner of flower shop , creates three groupings of spring posies to grace your home. No matter where you put them, they’ll be sure to brighten your day.

 

Vintage charm

From left to right: allium, bridalwreath spirea, double hyacinth-flower pink lilac, lady's mantle.

After a long grey winter, even the tiniest bursts of spring colour are more than welcome around the house. Old-fashioned flowering shrubs like lilac and bridal-wreath spirea add a touch of nostalgia to this sweet vignette.

 

High contrast

From left to right: old-fashioned bleeding heart, white forget-me-not, burgundy-leaved heuchera, looking glass cane begonia

Add some foliage power to your table with burgundy-leaved beauties accented with delicate arching sprays of pink bleeding hearts and the diminutive white blooms of forget-me-nots.

Editor's Tip: Create a foundation with foliage before layering in blooms. Here, glossy burgundy-leaved heuchera and variegated begonia leaves complement pink bleeding hearts.

 

Pretty fresh

From left to right: 'deft blue' hyacinth, double hyacinth-flowered pink lilac, fragrant solomon's seal, lily-of-the-valley.

Spring is a season of vivid contrasts, with its blooms of bright yellow, pink and blue. For the sake of variety, try a different tack: A quiet collection of green and white with a peek of pale purple provides a breath of fresh air.
