That’s right people, spring is definitely in the air. Not only are blossoms blooming like crazy all over Vancouver, sunshine and warmer temps seem to be more the norm than rain clouds. Baby bunnies are hopping all over Jericho Beach, and on top of that a few of my very best friends have just had (or are about to have) new babies, which is seriously exciting! New life is popping up everywhere.
So that got me thinking it was time for a fun spring project. I thought I would try something a little different. Back in the fall I had the pleasure of doing flowers for a lovely bride named Meghan who was getting married at the Heritage Hall on Main St. She wanted some sort of floral decor for the ceremony but wasn’t too keen on the more traditional set up of having 2 arrangements flank the “alter” so to speak. We came up with the idea of a hanging arrangement using some branches and incorporating some floral with similar colours and varieties I used in her and her bridesmaids’ bouquets. See below for the end result.
Back to spring, I decided to use that same method but scale it down to create a kind of a spring wreath or wall hanging using curly willow, daffodils, ranunculus, muscari, anemones, and viburnum in a pallet of fresh spring colours. I even added a bit of my signature striped ribbon. It also turned out that it would work nicely to rest it on a mantel or even just lay it down flat. Have a look!
There you go, hope spring is popping up in your neighbourhoods, wherever they might be!
