Gorgeous Vintage Flower Arrangements for Spring  

The vintage look has long been fashionable for flower arrangements – for events, in restaurants and hotels and in the home. Think 1920s glamour, rustic elements and the prettiness of the 1950s. With springtime flowers in bloom, there’s an abundance of flowers to choose from to create your perfect vintage look.

Sweetness of spring time

While modern flower arrangement are often very refine and designed, the key to a vintage look is balance of a rustic, garden vibe with glamour and abundance. Arrangements don’t have to be symmetrical or neat – as long as there is a cloud of colour and a rustic vase, you’ll have your perfect look. Dusky pink sweet peas are wonderful choices for a vintage bouquet, as are the pale yellow and white roses of a Cottage Garden Arrangement and an Edwardian Bouquet instantly takes you back to a time of style and taste.

Beautiful spring flowers like daffodils, tulips and hyacinths have long been popular and can make perfect vintage blooms when displayed in an old-fashioned vase and off-set with garden foliage. Think natural but glamorous for vintage spring style.

Vintage vessels

White lace makes a beautiful, delicate addition to glass vases: wind around a clear jam jar or use to fasten your bouquet for a old-fashioned feel. This will also work well with your candle vessels. You could also add vintage labels to jars and bottles for your flowers, or use ribbon and velvet as alternative embellishments.

Search your local charity shop or weekend market for fabulous vintage finds to display your flowers. Milk jugs, china teacups (look out for blue and white willow-pattern designs), ceramic watering cans and patterned tea tins will all make beautiful vessels for your vintage flowers. Fill with free fragrant blooms like freesias, daisies and baby’s breath, or create a sumptuous Great-Gatsby feel with armfuls of peonies or roses. Rose Garden Beauty features beautiful English roses in a rustic pink jug – perfect for the kitchen or an outdoor party.

Centre-pieces to celebrate

A posy of dusty pink peonies in a glass vase could be all you need to create 1920s vintage glamour, and a bouquet of roses may do just as well. For real Gatsby-esque glamour, display your blooms in silver or gold vessels to shimmer against the beauty of the blooms. Hydrangeas will look beautiful in a worn silver vase or jug for an outdoor-do, or nestled round a candle for a more designed look.

A silver tureen makes the perfect vase for a Tutti Colori arrangement of pure decadence. These soft-shaded blooms overflow in cascades of roses, hydrangeas and hyacinths – spring flowers of abundance. Full bouquets of tulips curling from a vase will have a similar effect of joy and glamour, everything you need for a vintage display. And in Floral Freedom, bright roses, freesias and verdant foliage overspill from an elegant white cage – a perfect vintage floral centrepiece.
