A china vase holds 'Ben Huston,' 'Old Gold,' 'Anries' Orange,' 'Prince Noir,' and 'Jomanda' dahlias.
Teeming with an assortment of brightly hued blooms, this lush, festive arrangement makes an ideal centerpiece for a Mexican-style fiesta or Cinco de Mayo. These dramatic, almost explosive colors are sure to make your guests feel as if they're dining on the beaches of Cancun or at the Mazatlan carnival.
This arrangement of orange calla lilies and roses is held in place thanks to a coiled grapevine. To get the look, soak a piece of grapevine from your yard (or a small wreath, available at craft stores) in water overnight, until pliable. Rinse and unravel -- you can make two or three frogs if using a wreath. Reshape a vine; place it in the bottom of the vase. Anchor flower stems amid the coils.
For this elegant centerpiece, we snipped a single peach dahlia bloom and set it in a pressed-glass sugar bowl, but any color dahlia would work beautifully. When setting a flower upon the rim of a cup or small bowl, be sure to leave an inch or so of stem attached so the bloom can continue to drink.
