How To Arrange Spring Florals Like A Dutch Painting

a-colorful-spring-floral-arrangement-inspired-by-dutch-paintings-floral-tutorial-on-coco-kelleyDo you remember the potluck dinner parties our parents’ and grandparents’ used to throw? Mom or Grandma would get a bundle of grocery store flowers (mums or carnations, anyone?!?) and plop them in a big pitcher or some random family heirloom vase. A giant stack of plates would get posted on the end of the banquet and that was that.

You may or may not know I am a die-hard fan of classic blue and white. I’ve grown my collection over the years from a few pieces sprinkled around here and there, to large groupings on counters, shelves, tables, you name it. You’ll find it incorporated everywhere throughout our home, from season to season. So naturally, color is a big one for me.
