  • Gather the Right Materials
Many specialty groceries often carry seasonal bouquets; these (from Trader Joe’s) include deep reds, russets and greens. A few cattails will add extra character, and can be ordered online (these came from Crate and Barrel).

Once the grid is taped, begin adding greenery first. This will build the foundation to support the flowers.

Next, add the big blooms, to make sure there’s enough room for them. Add the other blooms around the bigger ones to fill in gaps.

  • Trim Stems
Trim each stem to the right length, and then strip the leaves up to where the stem will come up out of the grid, to avoid unnecessary bunching.

  • Finish With Flair
Once all of the greenery and blooms are in place, add a few extra pieces for height and interest by including some cattails and pieces of greenery that are a few inches taller than the rest of the flowers.
