Flower farmer and floral design expert Thea Folls says there’s no such thing as a bad bouquet. But you can use her simple “rule of three” to arrange flowers to make your centerpieces especially eye-catching.
• Place three shorter flowers, such as clipped hydrangeas, near the edge of the vase.
• Add three slightly taller, spiky flowers, like veronica.
• Tuck in three long-stemmed ball-shaped flowers, such as zinnias.
• Finish with one tall central flower, like a delphinium or snapdragon.
