one of my favorite foodie websites, food52 is also a great resource for entertaining and decorating. everything food52 styles and shoots i find most inspiring, including three blog posts they just published on easy spring floral arrangements, including tips on trimming your flowers so they last longer and arranging like a pro (always helpful!). these are super simple, but so pretty. i’m also a big fan of their ‘one of a kind’ shopping section, where i’ve found great vintage pieces, like these french preserving jars and amber apothecary jars, which would make for nice floral vessels, wouldn’t they? spring has sprung!

    • I think they’re called Alliums – cool, huh? The article says:

      “There are hundreds of species of alliums—including, of course, edibles like garlic, scapes, shallots, and leeks—so you’ll want to ask a florist for the fragrance-free type that grows long, strong, and curly like these.”
