There's something about flowers. They have a certain magic I can't quite explain — having them around just makes everything a little better. If this neverending winter has got you down, why not bring some flowers into your home for a little almost-spring pick-me-up? And while you're at it, try one of these creative ideas for arranging flowers that even a novice can master.

Above: I'm a little ashamed to admit this, but I am really, really terrible at arranging flowers. That's why I love this idea from Peaches and Mint — a profusion of spring blossoms, each in its own small vase. Grouping the vases together on a tray gives the effect of a flower arrangement, but still allows each bloom to shine. Perfection.

Just for kicks, here's a variation on the theme — a grouping of bottles, filled with wildflowers and tied together with twine. This is a great option if you don't happen to have a billion bud vases on hand — nine matching glass bottles should be easy enough to come by. Spotted on Country Living.

This idea is a bit more ambitious... but who can resist the allure of a flower chandelier? Just make sure those vases are secured tightly to avoid crashing blooms. From Decor8.

Here's another idea to love from Decor8... placing flower arrangements under a cloche makes everything seem just a little bit more special.

When a bouquet seems too fussy, a few tall, lanky stems will suffice. Other ideas to steal: 1. Repurposing a liquor bottle (and as a big fan of Bulleit Bourbon, I can tell you that drinking it will be no chore), and 2. placing flowers in the bathroom, which always feels so indulgent and special.

The same but just a little different: a single bud (or branch) in an oversized vase has a simple elegance. From Decor Dots.

An oversized vase! With giant flowers! On the floor! It's beautiful and brilliant and I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this before. Warning: not for households with young children. Or rambunctious cats. Spotted on Design*Sponge. (And if you're in search of a giant vase of your own, this guy is almost two feet tall.)

Another genius why-didn't-I-think-of-that idea, from the folks at Marie Claire Maison (via Poppytalk). Create a flower arrangement in a jar, and then cover the bottom inch or two with a layer or water. This is great for the floral arranging challenged like me, because you don't have to worry about blooms flopping all over the place. Plus it has a certain strange, mystical appeal. Kind of like a ship in a bottle, but, you know, a bouquet in a bottle.

Flowers in a mason jar. Duh. If you're going to try this, one of these guys will help you out a lot. Spotted on Junebug Weddings.
