Pick your own bouquet: 1. Choose flowers within a tight color palette, and choose different sizes of blossoms for texture. 2. If you can, grab a stray branch or two on your way home from a bush or tree—these add a loose, relaxed, more "gathered" quality. 3. If you're going to give away the bouquet to a friend or bring it to a dinner party: Layer a damp paper towel on top of Saran Wrap and wrap around the trimmed stems, cut at an angle. Then cover with tissue paper.
