Peony Bouquet

April showers bring May flowers, but if you are like us, you are not waiting until then to start decorating with flower arrangements. This week we are spotlighting five florals (four flowers, one grass stem), all of which you can find on our website.

Also, be sure to check out our tips on flower arranging here, and tell us how you are decorating with flowers this spring.

Peony Bouquet:

Pale pink softens green leaves while maintaining a beautifully fresh appearance alone in a vase or among other flowers.

Parrot Tulips and GrassParrot Tulip Floral Stems and Artificial Grass Floral Filler:

These tulip stems are quite tall, taking full attention of any space they are in with whimsical charm. Both color options work in a variety of arrangements.

We have added the artificial grass in the image to the left to show how complementing it is to long stems, although it stands just as beautifully on its own.

Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus

Ranunculus Faux Floral Stems and Cherry Blossom Floral Bunch:

While the genus “Ranunculus” includes hundreds of species, we make it simple by offering just one of them. The rounded shape sets these blooms apart from others, adding contrast to a bouquet or making a beautiful statement individually. Both color options are perfect for spring or Easter decorating, too.

The cherry blossoms of Washington D.C. are infamously watched at the beginning of spring so the public can know when the best time to view their elegance is. You can add clusters of these delicate flowers to your home without cutting your actual cherry tree with bunches from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop – in pink, white or both!

DIY Flower Arrangements – Part III

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Welcome to the third installment of our DIY Flower Arrangements series. This week, it’s all about web exclusive flowers that you may have seen propped in the catalog but are only sold online – the Peony Bouquet and Ranunculus Stems. Learn how we arranged them below, and get caught up on Part I here and Part II here.

This pale pink floral bunch can be found on pages 26 and 68 of our Spring 2017 catalog. As you can see, its simple stem supports large blossoms that add a full look to any display, whether you use multiple in a large vase on a table, or in a small Iron & Glass Vase as a centerpiece or in a smaller space.

Ranunculus Stem

Flip to page 71 of our Spring 2017 catalog, and you will see a flower arrangement of white Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus. The fresh look of this arrangement is perfect for a bedroom or a welcoming entry. Also available in pink, the web exclusive Ranunculus also make beautiful additions to a bouquet of Calla Lilies. The combination of whimsical shapes (including the shape of the vase) enhances the flair and style of these blooms. For an even more lush look in both quantity and color, multiple Cherry Blossoms and Ranunculus do the trick.

DIY Flower Arrangements – Part II

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

This week, we’re taking a closer look at some of the flower arrangements found inside of our  spring catalog.

Follow Silas down the page to learn a little bit more about the components of the arrangements, and learn some behind-the-scenes tips for when you create a floral look using blooms from our collection or those from a spring garden.

And if you missed Part I last week, you can find it here.

^ When putting our Calla Lily Stems (shown in the three available colors) into a vase, keep the raffia tied around the stems for a bunched look, or untie them and let the blooms expand.

> The same goes for our Tulip Faux Floral Bunches (shown in both available colors), which also come tied with raffia. The color variations of each bloom offer your arrangement even more color. You could also use ribbon or even scrap lace for enhanced decorative appeal.

< Longer stems need a little more support than most vases can provide. When this is the case, foam, sand, rocks and even marbles can be placed in the vase to keep it from tipping over as well as securing stems in place. Moss or faux grass can then be layered on top to cover the material inside – as seen in this arrangement of ten pink and red Parrot Tulip Stems.

^ Our Wire Scroll & Glass Vase is a customer favorite, and while it’s a beautiful vase for flowers on its own, we recommend varying its look by filling the glass vase with decorative items: a Cabbage Leaf Mat, decorative grass, sea glass, rocks, leaves and other nature-inspired items.
