This arrangement took my breath away and I had to share it with you and some great tips described for it!!

Spiral-Stemmed Posy
A posy is a classic English hand-tied bouquet. Use long-stemmed flowers such as snapdragons, roses, tulips, and lisianthus and then add eucalyptus and viburnum for various shades of green.
Combining fresh roses, peonies, and hyacinths in exciting new ways allows us to enjoy their beauty each day. Fashion this delightful bouquet as a centerpiece whenever company's coming or any time you're ready for a wonderful treat.

Tips for Arrangements

Use a plentiful amount of blossoms and greenery, and combine plant materials with different colors, textures, and shapes. Use fern fronds, ivy, moss, and eucalyptus to frame the flowers and to fill out arrangements.

Look for blooms with unbruised leaves and buds that are just starting to open. Re-cut all stems, and stand them in a mixture of cool water and flower preservative until it’s time to arrange them.

Balance the lushness of your arrangements with simple containers such as baskets, clay pots, glass vases, and iron urns.
