To transform ordinary flowers into sophisticated displays, think inside the vase.
Twist a small palm frond or banana leaf into a tall cylinder vase as a backdrop for a delicate white orchid branch (available at most flower shops). Float a single blossom at the bottom of the vase and display on a mantel or shelf.

For an update on the classic '70s terrarium, group bouquets of textured flowers in similar colors (such as daisies and chrysanthemums in shades of purple). Add an inch of water, build up a mound of stones in the vase, and cover with flowers. Perch it on a coffee table or kitchen island.
Start with a ready-made mixed bunch of flowers and a wide cylinder vase or glass bowl. Choose one or two stems to stand tall but not taller than the vase. Cut the rest of the stems short and float the blooms in a small amount of water in the bottom of the vase.
