These delicately petalled girly beauties are effortlessly elegant styled simply on their own with a sprig of pretty green foliage in a plain glass vase but are also happy to take the back seat and add a gorgeous softness to more complicated arrangements. You can either leave the upper leaves intact for an enchantingly romantic effect, or remove all the foliage and bunch the blossoms tightly together for petal filled drama.
