Here, some of our favorite spring floral arrangements to use as inspiration.

1. Peonies in a mason jar. 

Sometimes the most gorgeous floral arrangements are also the simplest. Combine a mason jar and some peonies, and voila, a gorgeous centerpiece, or an accent floral arrangement perfect to put on an end table.

2. Deconstructed floral arrangements in spring’s best colors.

We love the idea of deconstructing a flower arrangement, with multiple vases filled with a single type of flower.

3. Roses in a teacup.

Another simple floral arrangement that looks absolutely gorgeous, take a teacup and fill it with roses.

4. Pink peonies, everywhere.

Pink peonies in a variety of clear glass vases will make the perfect spring centerpiece. This look is easy to create for your next dinner party, and will look like you hired a professional (no one has to know that you didn’t).

5. Lush spring florals in a watering can.

Instead of a vase, create the perfect spring floral arrangement using a garden watering can (bonus points if the watering can is painted in a pastel color).

6. Wrap flowers in asparagus.

Asparagus are great for more than just eating. Wrap an arrangement of flowers in a grouping of asparagus to create a seriously creative flower arrangement.

7. An arrangement in pink, orange, cream, and yellow.

There is something so incredibly chic about a color palette of pink, orange, cream, and yellow. Look for flowers in these colors, and it will be hard to go wrong.

8. Arrange vases of flowers on a tray.

Great flower arrangements aren’t necessarily huge bouquets, sometimes the best arrangements are groupings of small vases, some holding only a flower or two. Create something cohesive grouping the vases within a tray.
