This past week the NY Times ran an article on De Juan Stroud, a floral designer, who gave a few examples of simple and elegant designs for the table. In the article he also remarked that it pains him that "...so many people seem intimidated by flowers, and neglect to bring them into their lives in a daily, ongoing way."
Take a look at some of what Mr. Stroud arranged for the article, after the jump.
Simple flower selections and simple vases. Judging from the people who have been sending in pictures of their Saturday Morning Flowers, many readers agree with this philosophy and are enjoying the results. I think the NYTimes article was a good little bit of inspiration, featuring versatile and easy to find flower varieties. The astrantia (very top) may have been my favorite.
