20 Fab Floral Arrangements to Make for Your Next Event

Ever since Flower Arranging Made Easy debuted as one of our e-classes, we’ve been madly Pinning photos of gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces. There are just so many options when it comes to colors and styles no matter what you’re planning. We’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite floral arrangements to inspire you before your next event.


1. Floral Letters: It was love at first sight with these romantic floral letters. (via Honestly Yum)

2. Succulent: To say that we’re obsessed with succulents is a bit of an understatement. We’ve made succulent crowns, succulent hanging planters and even succulent sand art. So yeah, we’re all about this centerpiece. (via 100 Layer Cake)

3. Ombre Floral: Yes, we’re a little ombre crazy, too, which is why we love this bouquet. It’s a great representation of flora. (via Green Wedding Shoes)

4. Rainbow Flowers: Here’s another fun floral color play — how they snuck the green in there is just genius. (via One Charming Party)

5. Mini Bouquets: Don’t be afraid to go mini. A small bouquet with big blossoms — in this case roses, peonies and tulips — will make a lovely little BIG statement. (via Ruffled)

6. Foraged Floral Arrangement: Not all of us have pretty peonies or ranunculus at our disposal, but if you forage around enough near your home or office, we bet you’ll find beautiful blooms and greenery that will come together to make a very natural, understated bouquet. (via Style Me Pretty)

7. Floral Lanterns: Whether you hang ’em or place them on a table, flowers look lovely in antique lanterns. (via Wedluxe)

8. Floral Lantern Wreaths: Or you can make a floral wreath to surround your candle-burning lanterns. (via The Knot)

9. The Goblet of Flowers: We couldn’t help but sneak in a Harry Potter reference. And we love the way the flowers seem to be pouring out of these vintage goblets. (via 100 Layer Cake)

10. Neutrals in Antique Vase: Neutral-colored flowers and antique brass or copper vases make for stunning, rustic centerpieces. (via Wedding Chicks)

11. Lime + Floral Centerpiece: How genius is this? If you don’t want exposed stems in clear vases, slice up some citrus and add the pieces to the water. (via Flickr)

12. Pineapple Vase: Speaking of fruit and flowers, if you’re hosting a luau or tropical-themed party, core out a pineapple and use it as a vase! (via Wordgasm)

13. Simple Bouquets in Amber Glass Bottles: We love the simplicity of these arrangements: just a few flowers, accented with local herbage in amber glass bottles of various sizes. (via Ruffled)

14. Wooden Box Bouquet: The neutral color combination of the magnolia, tulips, ranunculus, anemones, sweet peas, roses, rosemary and jasmine vine is enough to make us swoon, but we also love the way everything just sort of lazily droops over the sides of this dark wooden box. (via 100 Layer Cake)

15. Flowers in a Seashell: Flowers in a seashell — what a great coastal centerpiece. (via Once Wed)

16. Flowers + Feathers: There are a lot of things to love about this tablescape — the moss table runner, the succulents in the copper pot and the simple, foraged bouquet with feathers. Yeah… feathers. Pretty amazing. (via Ruffled)

17. Pink + Gold: We can’t get enough gold, and pink is its perfect partner. These bouquets of peonies, dahlias, ranunculus and roses are stunning in gold-toned vases. (via Style Me Pretty)

18. Just Lavender: Almost any flower looks lovely on its own, but this is a billion times truer for lavender. It isn’t boastful or loud, but soft, elegant and soothing. (via Sweet Violet Bride)

19. Ivory + Green: How charming is this color palette of pale roses and hydrangea with deep green succulents? Just plain elegant. (via Elizabeth Anne Designs)

20. Dark Florals: We tend to associate flowers with spring and summer, and fall with pumpkins and corn. But these deep-hued beauties prove that there are plenty of dark florals for fall and winter events. (via Wedding Chicks)

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
