Have a color palate for your party in mind & choose blooms accordingly.
It’s best to pull something like this together the day before your event.
Always purchase an extra plant from the garden shop as you will use it.

Shot glasses make for beautiful mini flower arrangements.
Fill with yard bloom snippings from your yard.
Great picks include creeping jenny, boxwood, zinnias, azalea blooms & honeysuckle.
These selections can brighten the kitchen sink or a spot in your powder room.
