One of the first arrangements I saw Michael create at Penney & Co., was a cluster of white Poms in single bud vases. Removing all of the greenery, and cutting the stems at varying lengths, the simple vertical stems made a big impact. Bud vases are also one of the best ways to save money with your arrangements, because one bunch goes a long way. Mixed vintage bottles, different flower types in the same colour, and playing with height and levels are just a few of the ways you can make bud vases work for your decor scheme. Get inspired by my Pinterest photos below, and check out where you can buy your own bud vases in the shopping section!

This month, I am crushing on citrus fruit flower arrangements. I love the idea of mixing something unexpected, like oranges, into fresh flowers. The bright natural hue of oranges, and their leafy counterparts make them ideal for a surprising array of bouquets. Paired with bold pinks, oranges and corals, oranges can create a beautiful rustic-chic look. While they look classic and understated with white blooms and greenery. They are also an inexpensive way to fill in those empty gaps, and create dimension (they look amazing drooping over the edge of your vessel!). So what do you think, will you be mixing fruits and florals?
