3. Garden Scene
Bring the elegance of a castle courtyard inside by pairing orchids arranged in urns with boxwood backdrops. Create this scene by placing our White Phalaenopsis Orchid Plants in vintage-look Brown Old Gold Fiberglass Urns. Use this 20 x 20in Boxwood Mat for the wall and place the urn on a small pedestal in front of it.

4. Unexpected Arrangement
Put a twist on a classic artificial flower arrangement by showcasing the blooms inside the vase, as Better Homes and Gardens demonstrated. Start by gently twisting a palm frond in our Clear Glass Cylinder Vase, and then add a White Cymbidium Orchid Spray. Complete the display by floating a single orchid blossom at the bottom of the vase.

For this BRIDES magazine feature, floral designer Bridget Vizoso created an arrangement inspired by a gorgeous gown from designer Zuhair Murad. She blended exotics like orchids, passion vines, amaranths and monstera leaves with bridal classics like roses, sweet peas, lisianthus and ranunculus in a luxurious Polished Brass Urn for an arrangement that’s opulent and sensual.

One or two single orchid stems placed in etched glass bottle bud vases are downright charming, especially with mixed-and-matched colors. Go with our Green, Purple and White Phalaenopsis Orchids and our Pink, Red & White Camellia Sprays.

11. Elevated Display
Mixing succulents and orchids is unexpected, but the result is stunning. A no-fail method is to group together a hodge-podge mix of succulents and our Mint & Burgundy Lady Slipper Orchid Plants arranged in these Mossed Redstone Rose Pots with Saucers. Place the pots on tall pedestal tables and group them together to add interest to an empty corner.
