The hottest new flower arrangement for your house is the simplest new flower arrangement for your house. Pave flowers are a look even the village idiot can pull off and it will look like one of Martha’s minions personally arranged it. Like the diamonds from which the style takes its name, Pave flowers means a lot of little things (flowers, diamonds) massed together for big impact. No pesky worrying about making colors blend or choosing complementary petals. Arrangements use only one kind of flower in one color. Eassssy.
1) Pick roses, peonies, even chrysanthemums; the larger the bloom, the better. Use 12 blooms minimum.
2) Trim stems of all leaves.
3) Cut stems to fit snugly and low in a smallish vase or pitcher, so only the blooms show.
4) Mash flowers together. We’re not doing a loose arrangement here. If needed, tie stems with floral wire so blooms are tightly butted against each other.
