Think “the more the merrier”
For an informal feel, use found containers and fill to overflowing with summer wildflowers, including black-eyed Susans. No need to match and contrast. The beauty lies in the haphazard combo of color and blooms.

Work different heights
A bud vase on its own doesnt look like much. But if you group three or four in different sizes together, youll end up with a standout display. For a modern look, choose one type of flower in varying shades.

Float them
A footed glass bowl makes the perfect vessel for this remarkably elegant—and simple—arrangement. Fill halfway with water, and float blooms on top. A beautiful mix of roses and dahlias keeps the look fresh and romantic.
