"Spring is the inspiration for this arrangement, which features flowers that are true to the season and not necessarily available year-round. The star, and one of my favorites, is a giant ranunculus called a ‘Clooney’. It’s dramatic—and rare. It’s only around for a few, too-short weeks every year."—Jackie Reisenauer

“The season brings such delicate and fragile materials, so seductive in their vulnerability and tiny scale. This kind of arrangement is a lovely way to greet the unpredictability of the spring weather. I love the slight danger that one of April’s gusts could carry the entire piece away.” –Emily ThompsonSee the Step-by-Step Instructions

"I think this cascading bridge piece can be used in many settings: for an entryway, a sideboard, an escort card table, or, as pictured here, resting on a pair of side tables. I chose all my early spring favorites in a rich palette. Color is something I’m especially hungry for this time of year."—Susan McLearySee the Step-by-Step Instructions

"Be inspired by what you see here, but adjust the flowers to whatever you have in your garden. Substitutions are easy once you understand the qualities and purpose of each flower—just look for things of similar shape and size."—Kelly PerrySee the Step-by-Step Instructions
"Since it’s for a young girl, I wanted this flower crown's design to be frilly and fun and with a happy color palette. Big peonies provided a punchy focal point, and smaller blooms, such as the waxflowers and whimsical jasmine vine, added another layer of texture."—Janie MedleySee the Step-by-Step Instructions
