Spring Flower Arrangement DIY: White Honeycomb Vase

Target vase spring flower arrangment DIY

As we move from winter into spring, I'm increasingly determined to have fresh flowers in the house at all times. Even if it's just a single sprig by the kitchen sink, the sight of greenery and blossoms is so cheerful, isn't it? I'm blessed to have citrus trees in the courtyard of my apartment complex, so I've been incorporating those into my bouquets of late. I know. Pinch me.

I've been steadily building a collection of ceramic containers, and this Honeycomb Vase from the Threshold line at Target is the latest addition to the family. It's that just-right shade of white and sits in the 'not too modern, not too traditional' camp. I recently did an easy bouquet with flowers I picked up at the grocery store and kumquats branches from the yard.

While I certainly don't fancy myself a floral expert by any means, I've found there are three tricks to getting a successful arrangment at home. Firstly, keep your flowers simple. Don't choose too many different colors, shapes, and textures. Secondly, it helps to have a container that corrals the stems into place. The tall, narrow mouth of the vase was key in this case.

And finally, don't stress! Start with a clean workspace, spread everything out in front of you, and keep tucking stems into the arrangement until you've achieved a look you're happy with. The goal is to create something that feels like it grew right from the vase. Let a pretty container, a bounty of gorgeous blooms, and a bright spring day do the talking for you, and you can't go wrong!

    I’m now tempted to move into your building. If I were there I would eat ALL those kumquats. I’m beyond sad that we don’t have a tree.

    Great job!I love it when floral arrangements have a lot of greenery in them and untraditional elements like fruits branches or vegetables (artichoke blossoms are awesome).
