Since this is tight lush look, it’s best to do it in your hands – it is easier to get the flower heads lined just right for a nice subtle curve.
Gerbera daisies always brighten and arrangement, but are often very overpowering. I like to pluck off the outer petals to reveal the fun, bright center.
Incorporating fruit into the arrangement gives it a summery feel and adds a great texture. Kumquats last a very long time; my secret is to take most of the leaves off as they with dry out first.
