Not only are these bouquets and centerpieces lush, layered, and (mostly) locally sourced, but they’re also entirely eye-catching.

Why it works

“This layered design can adapt to different styles,” says Damselfly Global, LLC founder Brenda LaManna. “For instance, the bridal bouquet would complement a bohemian dress just as effortlessly as if it were paired with a classic A-line.”

Why it works

“I love using unexpected and unusual flowers,” notes Penny Karvounis, owner of her eponymous boutique. “The pineapple has so many beautiful, tiny flowers covering it, in shades of lavender, aubergine, and chartreuse.”

Why it works

“Strong pinks give the arrangement a bold feeling, softened by apricot hues,” notes Bedford Village Flower Shoppe president Anthony Chillemi. “Injections of peach bridge the juxtaposing bold pinks and soft apricots for a striking balance.”
