Bring on the spring blooms and create a fast and fresh spring bouquet with our seasonal favourites! The florals include French tulips, parrot tulips and anemones in pink and blush, which we paired with light green carnations and beautiful silver dollar eucalyptus. Pink, blush, silver and light green evoke a lovely fresh and airy feel when mixed together that will bring an instant spring accent to your home. We used a tall vintage vase with a flared opening on a silver pedestal. A tall container is ideal for flower with long stems and helps to balance the bouquet. The bouquet is a great spring centrepiece and makes a lovely gift.

1) Prep the flowers
Allow the flowers to rest in fresh water for 2 hours, which has flower food added, 2 hours before you start. Prep the tulips, anemones, and carnations by removing lower 2/3 of leaves from the flower stems. We left a few of the tulip leaves to have anotherCut the eucalyptus stems in half and strip off the bottom leaves.
2) Building the bouquet
To create the centre of the bouquet, bundle 2 anemones, 2 French tulips, 2 parrot tulips, 3 carnations and 2 to 3 ecucalyptus branches. Going in a circular motion, add the next round of flowers, alternating between tulips, tulips, anemones, carnations and eucalyptus. Arrange the stems at an angle, forming a spiral around the centre. Continue this process with another layer of flowers and greenery.
3) Finish the bouquet
Shorten the stems to the same length. Using green raffia or ribbon, tie the bouquet tightly together in the middle. Finally, cut the stems of the flowers at a flat angle, which helps these flowers to absorb more water and stay fresh longer. Place the bouquet in the vase and enjoy!
Materials: tulips, anemones, carnations, eucalyptus
Tips for long vase life
Change the water and re-cut the stems every other day. When replenishing the water, also pour the vase or jug with hot water to eliminate bacteria. Re-cut the tulip stems if the outgrow the bouquet.
