Bouquets aren’t just for special occasions. You can make your own spring bouquet to brighten up your home and give it a flowery scent. Use the following steps to create a spring bouquet for your apartment.
Choose a Theme
Having a theme for your bouquet, such as a color scheme or certain types of flowers, makes it easier to select the right flowers for it. Consider making a bouquet of pastel-toned flowers, or choose flowers that have vivid colors. You can also make a bouquet filled with tropical flowers or wildflowers for a bold look, or select classic spring flowers, such as tulips and hydrangeas. Once you have your theme, you can head to your local florist, farmers market or supermarket to select flowers.
Get Your Flowers Ready
When you bring your flowers home, get them ready for the bouquet by trimming the stems. Doing this helps the flowers last longer. You can trim the stems more if you plan on having shorter flowers in your bouquet.
Put Your Bouquet Together
Once your flowers are trimmed to the right length, you can start adding them to your bouquet. You can make your bouquet in a vase or a creative container that holds water. Put a few of the main flowers or most visible ones in the vase or container first, then put smaller flowers around them. Turn the vase or container around to check your bouquet on all sides. Rearrange flowers as needed to create an eye-catching bouquet. You can place a rubber band around the stems if your flowers keep moving around.
Keep Your Bouquet Fresh
Fresh flowers don’t last forever, but you can keep yours looking good for a longer length of time with a few tips. Change the water every other day to stop bacteria from spreading in the vase or container. Trim the stems of your flowers every other day as well, and add a bit of sugar to the water to help them thrive longer.
