BRIGHT & BLOOMING SPRING
BY YARA ESTEPHAN
Spring is all about colors – and why settle
for one when you can have them all?
The trend for spring is always
colors, ranging from flashy to pastel.
It reflects the freshness of the season,
especially if you’re hosting outdoors.
Since most flowers are in bloom
at this time of year, they are easy
to find – and inexpensive. From floral
staples like roses, lilies and daisies,
to more seasonal options like tulips
and hortensias, it’s the easiest period
to find an array of flowers.
You can get more imaginative.
You can use lots of fruit on your tables;
citruses can be used to hold name cards,
or you can stick little flowers in halved
lemons. Bowls of fruit can be used
as a substitute for flowers, but
the best way is to combine the two.
The rest of the arrangement is
uper easy to recreate where you
can use household items with an
added twist. A glass cake holder,
large jar, and pitcher were
filled with moss, garden-fresh
fruits, and flourishing bouquets.
Every plate is unique,
each topped with a dainty teacup
filled with combinations of fruits,
berries, roses, and hand-made
flower-shaped meringues, courtesy
