Spring Arrangements with Beautiful Branches

Salmon and White Quince

Salmon and White Quince

With spring just around the corner, there is an exciting feeling filling the air and with all the beautiful branches arriving into our store we can’t help but catch spring fever.

Flower arrangements using branches bearing sweet delicate flowers, or catkins, are being created so that you may bring the freshness of spring into your home.

Available now are Forsythia with bright yellow bursts of sunshine, Quince with the soft and delicate colors of salmon and white, and Tulip Magnolia in rich pinks.

Symbolizing growth and prosperity, pussy willows are also available to add a soft texture to any arrangement. Tip: If you do not cut the pussy willow and put into water, the catkins will stay on and not pollinate.

All branches come to us in bud stage for their protection, so we try to have a nice selection on hand, but plan ahead to give them time to open. It can take a week or more. Once branches come out they open more slowly at the beginning of their season and near the end of their season, they open faster.

For branches that last longer, we also have faux botanicals that look so real that our customers cannot tell the difference.

Let us create a fantastic arrangement for you to place in your living room, bathroom, bedroom, or wherever you need the cheerful promise of spring to brighten your day.

We look forward to seeing you in the store to visit our selection.

Flowering Branches=Spring

Quince are the next flowering branches to become available. They come in white and pink and there are rare red ones that never seem to make it away from the coasts. The quince have spiky thorns so handle carefully and they open us and hold for a decent amount of time. Plan ahead with them so that they are open when you need them to be their prettiest. They are here from now until about Mother’s Day. They look really beautiful with french tulips and lilies for a sleek and clean long lasting arrangement. As with all flower arrangements, use a floral preservative and change the water regularly. Giving a fresh cut every few days can also extend the life of all flowers and branches.
