Queen Elizabeth's Perfect and Pretty Spring Bouquet

Today, Queen Elizabeth II visited City and Islington College in London, carrying a charming bouquet of pastel blooms. The flowers are such a fresh, Spring-inspired choice, that I had to share the elements, so you could re-create it for your home.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Lilacs — This beautiful Spring flower is only available for a limited amount of time in floral shops, so grab them while you can! Lilacs don't last long after they've been cut, so be sure to follow all of these tips for extending your flowers' lives.
  • Parrot tulips — This variety of tulip is noted for its feathered, curled, twisted, or wavy petals. While many parrot tulips are brightly colored, for this sweet bouquet, choose a pale pink or ivory shade.
  • White hydrangeas — Look for a miniature version of this classic flower to balance the dimensions of the other flowers in your bouquet.
  • Pink roses — There are a number of beautiful varieties of pink roses. Pick your favorite from your local floral shop for the bouquet, or order these long-lasting organic pink roses.

What are your favorite flowers for a springtime bouquet?
