“Mixing paper flowers with real flowers felt unexpected and almost humorous, like a little joke for those who looked closely at the arrangement. Using a modern teapot as a vase was also a playful twist instead of the usual vase.” – Amy Merrick

“I really loved the spring flowers – especially the tulips, hellebores, and also the roses. Their sunny colors are so necessary while we wait for the weather to warm up.” – Amy Merrick

“Don’t be afraid to manipulate the flowers – arching stems, or using wire cutters to change their heights. I also opened up the petals on the tulips, so they looked as if they had been growing in the arrangement.” – Amy Merrick
