A few blooms can make a big impact. The secret? Complementary colours and textures. First, make a grid across the top of a small, rectangular vase with thin, clear tape to hold flowers in place. Position hyacinths—blooms only, no leaves—to anchor the arrangement. Add tulips, intersperse with Hypericum berries (strip all leaves from stems), then tuck in greenery (we used small, shiny gardenia leaves).
