Elevate Your Flowers | For lush arrangements that impress, place flowers on footed dessert stands. To make, place a block of florist foam in a large, shallow bowl that has a slightly smaller circumference than the stand. Add flowers to create a soft dome shape, keeping some stems longer for natural asymmetry.
Beautiful Spring Bouquet - Spring Table Settings and Centerpieces
Beautiful Spring Bouquet | Combining fresh roses, peonies, and hyacinths in exciting new ways allows us to enjoy their beauty each day. Fashion this delightful bouquet as a centerpiece whenever company's coming or any time you're ready for a wonderful treat.
Hyacinths In Bloom | Cruise the aisles of your favorite garden center to find a variety of bulbs forced and ready to display. Blooming weeks before their in-ground counterparts, these much-anticipated blossoms lift our spirits and brighten our homes. To get the look shown here, protect a holiday punch bowl with a plastic container, then pack in a dozen hyacinths preplanted in soil. Lightly water, and top with moss.
Sunny Bouquets | These fiery blooms stand up to our August scorchers. For this display, we snipped dahlia and dahlia buds, lantana, and zinnia to form a loose cluster. Yellow Billy buttons and calendula from a local florist round out the mix. Bonus: Including yet-to-bloom buds ensures an arrangement with staying power.
Backyard Blooms | These cheery blooms are easy to grow, require minimal care once established, and yield plenty of flowers for cutting. For quick arranging into a casual bouquet, like the one shown here, place large sunflowers in container first. Then add cockscombs, a great filler that provides texture. Tuck in as many zinnia blooms as possible and finish with small gomphrenas flowers to accent.
Embrace the Blues! - Create Beautiful Seasonal Centerpieces
Embrace the Blues | To create this arrangement, we used billowy hydrangeas, plumbagos, cornflowers, and scabiosas for visual heft. We then filled in with salvias, cinerarias, and 'Techno Heat' lobelias to add texture. The result? A casual centerpiece with a vibrant blue palette that makes for a tranquil focal point.
