Moms? Well, they’re pretty amazing. I know mine is: she’s taught me everything from how to curl my hair (when I was ten) to how to plant the right flowers in my shady yard (this week). This year, show your mom you care with a bright spring flower arrangement. Don’t worry if you’re not a pro florist: we’ve got step-by-step instructions to help you build four show-stopping bouquets.

Lilac Flower Arrangement

Lilac Flower Arrangement

Arrange fresh lilacs and lavender  alongside green lady’s mantle or eucalyptus in  a vintage pitcher. To create the perfect spiral-shaped bouquet, hold the stem of a flower in your hand and add another variety of flower to it at the end, twisting the bunch slightly in one direction as you do so.

Spring Bouquet

Spring Bouquet With Tulips, Hyacinths and Ranunculas

The contrasting blues and oranges of this vibrant hand-tied bouquet make the blooms sing with intensity. Put the arrangement in an orange or black vase for a stunning Mother’s Day centerpiece.

Orange Flower Arrangement

Citrus-Inspired Flower Arrangement

Add freshly cut oranges, lemons or limes to pure white blossoms for an unexpected touch. Tuck the cut fruit into your arrangement just before you present the bouquet.

Sweet Peas Flower Arrangement

Simple Sweet Pea Arrangement

Sometimes, it’s best to keep it simple. Delicate sweet peas are special enough for a gift when arranged in a tall glass vase wrapped in a variegated hosta leaf with a twine tie.
