In Bloom: 3 Festive Floral Ideas

Tropical Flair
For a dynamic centerpiece with an imaginative twist, turn to the season’s bounty of produce, which can do double duty as fresh fare and creative containers.


Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. To form the base of this arrangement, hollow out a pineapple or any sturdy fruit, using a sharp knife, and then insert a cup of water or wet floral foam.
  2. Next, fill the fruit-turned-vase with a lively mix of blooms, such as ‘Coral Charm’ peonies, purple lisianthus, orange dahlias, blue veronica, gomphrena, and oakleaf hydrangea, as well as some verdant inclusions like explosion grass and fern.
  3. To complete the presentation, set the display on a simple woven serving tray, and surround it with a few lemons to add a final note of summer sunshine.
