Peak flower-picking season is nearly upon us, and nothing breathes fresh life into a space—or brightens someone’s special day—quite like a lush display of blooms. No bed of tulips in your backyard? Not to worry! Our in-house floristry expert, Sarah Ponthieu, is here to demonstrate how to assemble an easy, garden-inspired bouquet using select stems from your local grocer or farmer’s market.

All you need are a set of shears, a healthy bundle of foliage and flowers, and most important, the right vase to serve as your base. Click play to discover Sarah’s pro tips, then shop below to find the perfect vessel to complement your own showstopper arrangement.
