TIPS FOR ARRANGING FLOWERS AT HOME
From Emily Buckner
Designing doesn't have to be daunting- rather than going crazy with lots of different blooms, pull 3-4 varieties in your palette, clustering 1 variety per vessel. Opt for really beautiful, tonal vessels in a variety of shapes and sizes-- this will bring a little depth and dimension to your tablescape. When selecting a palette, pick one flower, and then look to her to dictate the rest of the tones- e.g. if I pull a beautiful cream ranunculus that has hints of yellow in the center, and pink on the outside, I would bridge the cream with blush, buttery yellow outward toward the saturated tones.
