Whether gracing a table for a party or simply adding a bit of color to your bedside table, these floral inspirations will breathe new life into any room.
Beat the summer heat with a container water garden that doubles as a beautiful decoration. These water plants get their nutrients from water and require no soil to thrive.
Massed at eye level in a rustic trough, pink cherry blossoms join white dogwood and spirea to give armchair nature lovers a breath of fresh air. The branches stand in chicken wire that has been bent to fit the container's liner. Moss and lichen from a florist mask the wire support in sylvan style.
Enliven your next buffet with an arrangement of eggcup bouquets displayed on cake stands. Choose small-budded flowers in similar hues, such as the tulips, lily of the valley, paperwhites, and daffodils we used. Trim the stems so the blossoms will peek over the rims of the eggcups. Place a small round metal floral frog in each eggcup to help shape and weight the arrangements. Fill the cups three-quarters of the way with water, and then add the blooms. Arrange the mini bouquets on and around stands. Water daily for a long-lasting centerpiece.
Capable of much more than just filling space, baby's breath is actually most impressive on its own. Buy a mass of it or set aside some from other bouquets, and then group it into a soft and blurry cloud, grounding the stems in cleverly concealed blocks of floral foam.
Ornamental cabbages and kales, better known as colorful pinch hitters in cool-season gardens, lend an unexpected grace to indoor displays. Here, peony-like clusters and lacy, pink-tinged leaves are interspersed with seeded eucalyptus and arranged in a weathered urn.
