I’ve been seeing lots of gorgeous blooming branches at local flower stands lately, and it always makes my day a little brighter. It’s not a new technique, but decorating with fresh blooming branches will really never get old. It’s one floral arrangement that manages to both add a bit of green (or pink, as it were) to your home, while also serving as an artsy, sculptural piece — especially since the branches often require a large, stately vase to corral them.

Inspired by photos of pretty blooming branches, I rounded up some equally lovely spring inspired artwork. So that once those blooms disappear, you’ll still have the constant reminder of how wonderfully colorful spring is!

    When we got married, I told my husband “whatever you do, never bring me flowers.” I don’t no why… It felt very ’50s to me. Now, nothing makes me happier than fresh blooms at home! And I LOVE the art you picked.
