How to Make a Flower Arrangement Vignette


Hi Friends! I’m so happy you stopped by today because I’m talking about something that I truly love and am excited to share with you! With spring fast approaching, I am already dreaming about the fresh flowers that will soon be available at the flower market and more importantly in my yard. I got so excited this week when I saw the first blooms on my camellia bushes, I decided to put together a little grouping of flowers on my coffee table and I just love how it turned out, so I thought I would share with you how to make a simple flower arrangement vignette.

And as a bonus, I’m being joined by some great friends who are sharing their ideas for vignette styling and spring mantle decorating, so be sure to scroll down to the end of this post for more inspiration!


I find that creating a big centerpiece or arrangement can often be intimidating, so the best solution I have found is to make several simple, smaller arrangements to create a beautiful fresh flower vignette that makes a big impact.

Using a single color flower, like white, creates a cohesive look and makes it easy for the vignette look complete.

Using stacked books to create height and depth is the easiest way I know to make a beautiful vignette.

It all started because my camellias started blooming last week and I began envisioning all-white flower arrangements scattered on my living room coffee table. I went to the flower market and gathered some additional white flowers and a few simple greens to add to the arrangements

I used white stock, eucalyptus, and camellias in a short, wide arrangement and placed it on a linen-covered book to start my vignette…

The second arrangement was a simple round vase filled with garden roses and pretty yellow billy buttons to complement the center of the camellias.

I stacked several neutral books in the center of the coffee table to hold three simple flower arrangements.


I used several colors and styles of vases for this vignette. I think the mix of different metallics, colors, and sizes look great grouped together. This small gold vase filled with camellias is perfect on its own but is even better in a vignette.

In order to lighten up the overall look, I used a bunch of white ranunculus in an oversized gold mint julep cup. I stacked this arrangement in the back of my vignette to add a bit of height and drama.

The final vase I used was a footed mercury glass vase that I filled with white lilacs. I love the romantic look of this flower and how it softens the overall look of this vignette.

The result was a pretty flower vignette that was simple and easy to create using flowers from my garden and a few flower market finds.

I think the key to making a beautiful flower arrangement vignette is to focus on using a single color palette in the florals with varied styles and colors of vases.

Using books to add height and depth on a coffee table is a great way to pull the entire look together.

A vignette is a great way to add beautiful color to a coffee table, dining table or kitchen center island. I hope this gives you some ideas about how to make a flower arrangement vignette in a few simple steps.
