It’s springtime! Everything seems to be stirring to life after a long winter season. Finally, a reprieve from the winter blues after the holidays have been boxed up for the year.
Your artificial Christmas tree might be packed away until next winter, but you can pull out a few white or cream colored poinsettias from the Christmas decorations to set off yellow daisies and pink roses. Now is the time to think about springtime flower arrangements to give your home a fresh, bright feel.
Simplicity is in style this season, so it’s easy for you to create classic flower arrangements of your own using fresh cut flowers from your garden or from a local florist. Go with monochromatic color combinations–poppies and tulips are a lively, bright duo that lend cheeriness to any room.
