Filling your house with fresh flowers is the best way to celebrate the start of spring. A little garden jargon and wordplay don't hurt, either, so let's usher in the season by learning some budding floral arrangement hacks you can try at home. In this video from The Kitchy Kitchen, Claire Thomas and florist Yasmin Mei walk us through the simple steps to transform a bunch of on-trend, grocery-bought flowers into a gorgeous arrangement at home.

Mei chose affordable and versatile flowers—ornamental kale, roses, freesia, and dusty miller—that you can find pretty much anywhere.
