4. Pink peonies everywhere.

Pink peonies in a variety of clear glass vases will make the perfect spring centerpiece. This look is easy to create for your next dinner party and will look like you’ve hired a professional (no one has to know you haven’t).

5. Lush spring flowers in a watering can.

Instead of a vase, create the perfect spring floral arrangement using a garden watering can (bonus points if the watering can is painted a pastel color).

6. Wrap the asparagus flowers.

Asparagus is great for more than just eating. Wrap a flower arrangement in a cluster of asparagus to create a very creative floral arrangement.

7. An arrangement in pink, orange, cream and yellow.

There’s something incredibly chic about a pink, orange, cream and yellow color palette. Look for flowers in these colors, and it will be hard to go wrong.

8. Arrange vases of flowers on a tray.

Large flower arrangements are not necessarily huge bouquets, sometimes the best arrangements are groupings of small vases, some containing only a flower or two. Create something cohesive by grouping vases together in a tray.
