Our forsythia hedges are blossoming. Their yellow flowers are a burst of sunshine to announce the coming of spring. The forsythia hedges are rather ordinary in the summer, but create gorgeous, showy yellow blossoms on bare branches in early spring.
To decorate our Shabbos table last week, I snipped a few branches and arranged them in a simple silver vase. They make the most gorgeous arrangement and make our home feel like springtime.
Forsythia branches will last at least two weeks, so I will be able to decorate my Purim tables with these stunning flowers. Yay!
2 large forsythia branches
2 smaller forsythia branches
This type of arrangement works best in a tall vase with a narrow neck. Prune 2 large and 2 small forsythia branches. Remove flowers from the bottom of the branches that will be placed inside the vase. Place the two larger stems in the middle and the two smaller stems on the outside.
You take the ordinary and turn it into extraordinary
