Spring is finally here.
How do I know? The Lilacs are in bloom.
If you want a quick and easy centerpiece that smells up the whole room when you walk in, then just pick some fresh Lilacs and let the freshness begin.
Here is a simple floral arrangement that anybody can do. You can use lilacs, roses, rhododendrons or almost any flower you can find. Don’t buy these beauties if you have some flowering bushes in your yard. Just go out and cut a few stems.
Usually you see a lot of these bouquets in a tall vase. See what I used and then I placed it on the table to use as a centerpiece.
I used a soup tureen. You also need floral foam. The kind that you soak in water. When stems of flowers are stuck into this foam, it acts like a self watering system for the flowers.
I placed the foam into a plastic container before putting into my tureen. Next I placed a tall stem of flowers directly into the middle of the foam. Then I stuck a stem on all four sides toward the outer edge of my tureen. After you do this, then just start filling in the empty spaces and before you know it, you have a centerpiece that looks like a Florist did it. Make sure to leave a few leaves sticking out. It gives it a really natural look.
Try giving this to Mom for Mother’s Day. She will love it (and she won’t even have to know that it cost you virtually nothing, and it was her Tureen to begin with)
