Bouquets can say "boo" without the aid of witches or ghosts. Take this trio of topiary treats -- a lesson in the power of repetition plus a few simple tricks. Dress up three cones of floral foam with sunflowers and button chrysanthemums above "cuffs" of fuzzy kangaroo paws (Anigozanthos). Their harvest golds will glow like lanterns above the black urns that round out this Halloween parade.
Fresh flowers, whether from the garden or from the local florist or market, are like a bundle of sunshine. You can plunk them in any old vase, but if you know just a few tricks, it's easy to create original displays.
