Another option is to make an unusual bouquet by mixing multi-colored leaves with flowers in a low vase. To make a seasonal bouquet, use seasonal foliage like flowering branches or pine boughs to make the arrangement. Add contrasting textures, such as fern fronds with colorful spring flowers, to make the arrangement visually interesting.
