Fashion Forward Florals: A Dozen Interesting New Ways to Display Flowers

Spring has come sweetly, unexpectedly early this year, and spring means flowers. But bringing flowers into your home doesn't have to mean just plunking them into a single vase and calling it a day. Here are 12 creative ways to re-think the way you display flowers in your house.

1. Use greenery in place of (or in addition to!) flowers — it still has that fresh, natural feel, but lasts much longer.

2. For a really big impact, place some branches in an oversized vase.

3. Or try an oversized vase on the floor for a touch of the unexpected. (Not recommended for those with children or pets.)

4. Create a grouping of multiple vases to add depth and interest.

5. Hang flowers from the ceiling! Try this DIY from Paper & Stitch.

6. Tulips look lovely in long, tall vases.

7. Or try this idea from Pro Flowers: layer tulips on their side in a fish bowl.

8. Place a few blooms in a pretty tea cup.

9. Stack two vases inside each other, and fill the outer one with lemon slices for a cheerful accent. Full DIY from Cosmopolitan.

10. Make this DIY test tube flower display from Burkatron.

11. Float a single bloom inside a stemless wine glass.

12. In place of a bouquet, display a bunch of flowers in a vintage bottle crate. No arranging required!
