Simple DIY Flower Arrangements

Yorba Linda Fun Things to Do

As winter recedes and summer waits on the horizon, we are treated to the blossoming spring. Residents of our Austin or Houston homes enjoy a countryside blanketed in colorful wildflowers this time of year.  Flowers abound in Florida as well, with Naples properties dressed in sky flowers while beauties like lupines and alligator lilies grace other areas of the state. Owners of Southern California homes, in the meantime, can breathe in the aroma of a variety native plants and flowers.

Research shows that flowers affect our emotions. Many of us here at Taylor Morrison get a lift by bringing spring indoors with bouquets of fresh-cut flowers. Here are some thoughts about DYI floral arrangements to revitalize your home.

Flower Arranging


Flower arranging is an art, but there are tricks, so no need to feel intimidated. From selecting the right amount of flowers to embellishing with leaves, this article shows you some secrets and provides a checklist. To make your arrangements last longer, get them into water quickly, cut stems at an angle and change the water daily.

Buying Flowers


Your flower selections will be based on color, availability and what’s growing in your garden. If you buy cut flowers, make sure the stems aren’t slimy, the water still smells fresh, stems aren’t broken and buds don’t droop. When you get them home, recut the stems under fresh water and use flower food.

Kinds of Containers


As these guidelines explain, there’s a technique for every shape and size of vase. You can even be whimsical and creative, using watering cans and painted colanders. Even rain boots can show off your flowers with flair. If you’re planning a wedding, these tips include types of flowers and clever ways to display them.
