One of our favorite ways to instantly refresh a room? A floral arrangement that brings the beauty of the outdoors in. We’ve partnered with Kristen Cassie, founder of Moon Canyon Flowers, to bring you a new DIY arrangement for each new season.
Sometimes it’s the most simple of floral arrangements that ends up being my favorite. Flowering branches are so exquisite and stand alone so well that I tend not want to fuss with them too much.
When picking out your flowers, aim to go with what is in season and fresh. Quince branches are in season for such a short period of time, so I try to use them as much as I can while they’re here!
To make your arrangement last longer, give your flowers fresh water every day and give each stem a fresh cut before placing.
This spring floral arrangement speaks right to my heart with its subtle lines and pale colors. To create this look, you will need several quince branches and amaryllis. The exact number depends on your vase, although odd numbers of stems tend to produce beautiful arrangements.
Branches are a perfect fit for a big, tall vase, such as Crate and Barrel’s Adra, Holden or Kora. A great trick to use, so you do not have to fill the vase to the max with branches and flowers, is to place a flower frog in the bottom of the vase to stabilize the blooms. This will give you an airy yet architectural quality.
When deciding where to cut the stems, think about how high you would like the branches to be in your space. I like to have mixed heights, so I cut my tallest piece first and my shortest piece second. Then I can fill in the middle pieces. Add, edit and change up your floral arrangement until it feels complete.
