I made my first trip to the LA Flower Market the other day with Kelly and Brittni, and my brain exploded with the flower awesomeness. We were running around like a bunch of crazies, and when a sweet vendor handed us an armload of ranunculus for free because he was closing up shop, it just about sent us over the edge. Needless to say, you’ll be seeing a few floral DIYs from the three of us soon.

So since I know next to nothing about flowers, I decided to put together a super-simple bouquet of two of my faves: yellow ranunculus and craspedia (better known to some as billy balls). I love how it kind of looks like a bouquet that you’d find in a Dr. Seuss book. Here’s how you can put one together, too.

Trim the stems of each bloom with a fresh diagonal cut and strip the leaves on the lower half of the stem.

Insert the blooms one by one into the vase, arranging them so that the taller blooms are center and the outer blooms arch over the side of the vase a bit.

Trim the stems of the billy balls also, cutting enough off so that they tuck down into the arrangement, just below the ranunculus.

  1. Sometimes I get lost thinking of the perfect color pairings for blooms. Simplicity is always a winner and can be just as visually interesting. Thanks!

  2. oh my gosh get out of my wedding brain! I love this. And both of these flowers (in that color) are begging to be in the centerpieces. love it.

  3. Thank you so much for this! I’ve been buying ranunculus and I couldn’t figure out the best way for them to be displayed. The leaves are a bugger and now I know! Thank you thank you thank you!
