Stunning spring and summer floral arrangements that celebrate colour

1 Spring: White, pink and purple

After a long grey winter, even the tiniest bursts of colour are more than welcome around the home. Old-fashioned garden shrubslike lilac and bridalwreath spirea add a touch of nostalgia to this sweet entryway vignette. Tip: When creating a grouping of different posies, use a variety of eclectic vessels and play with the height and volume of each arrangement.

2 Spring: Green, white and pale purple

Spring is a season of vivid colours, with its blooms of bright yellows, pinks and blues. For the sake of variety, try a different approach: A quiet collection of greens, whites and a peek of pale purple is like a breath of fresh air.

3 Spring: Burgundy and pink

Add some foliage power to your spring tablewith burgundy-leaved beauties (heuchera and begonia) accented with arching sprays of bleeding hearts and the tiny blooms of forget-me-nots. Tip: Forgo a large centerpiece in favour of mini-posies scattered along the length of the table.

4 Summer: Purple and green

A simple milk glass vessel shows off a voluptuous single-hued bouquet. When arranging a variety of flowers in similar shades, play with tone, texture, shape and size. Here, the display features the beauty of bigleaf hydrangea with tendrils of summer blooms and foliage, including blackberry sprigs and Blue Pirouette clematis, winding through the blooms and offering a wonderfully untamed feel.

6 Summer: All fuchsia

When hosting overnight visitors, deck out the guest room with a bouquet of vibrant friendly flowers – eye-catching fuchsia blooms, such as dahlias, calla lilies and unfurled fern fronds, will do the trick.

7 Summer: White and green

Summer is high time for flowers, since options at the market are seemingly endless. Don’t limit yourself – go lush and grand. Anchor oriental lilies, hydrangeas, love-lies-bleeding and variegated hosta in an urn, and then mix in a few apple tree boughs. A few apples scattered around the base of the urn evoke an abundant summer harvest.
