Designers of contemporary collections often combine flowers with fruits to make their arrangements good enough to eat, an abundance of fragrant sweet peas displayed in a vase full of strawberries give a terrific look to any summer dinner party. Slices of limes and lemons work wonderfully with white roses to give a clean crisp effect. Miniature trees, stripped of their leaves and replaced by single heads of pastel shades of asters provide an interesting focal point for a large room.
Another fun idea is to put a small arrangement together in a holiday mug. Use floral foam as the base of the design. First cover the foam with leather leaf, then add a three white carnations, inserted at different heights, two stems of red pixie carnations, some baby's breath, and red hypericum berries. You could also add some cedar or other evergreen to the design.
