Arrange a colorful bouquet
Thomas J. Story

Colorful bouquet

Show off a vibrant mix of berries, seeded eucalyptus, and flowers in a pedestal bowl.

When arranging, think triangles: Start by sticking three of the heavier branches into the bowl at an angle and evenly spacing them, then continue layering branches within this frame, turning the bowl as you work and interspersing smaller sprigs for balance.

We used blackberry cuttings, grape hyacinth (Muscari), nandina berries and leaves,  red viburnum, [urplish Viburnum tinus, and seeded eucalyptus.

Anchor heavier branches by loosely tying together their stem ends with a piece of twine.
