To create a look similar to the one shown here, place a few taller flowers (like delphinium) in vases toward the back and cluster short jars and glasses of blooms at the front — and consider saving a few blooms to press for a DIY art project.
Start by snipping flowers from your cutting garden or pick up a store-bought arrangement. Keep an eye out for interesting foliage such as ferns and geranium leaves too. Once you have your flowers and foliage, divide the blooms among an eclectic assortment of recycled bottles, jam jars and kitchen containers. When the container is small, you need only one or two blooms to make it feel full, so you can create a lush-looking centerpiece with less.
