Capture the beauty of the season with this romantic bouquet, created by floral designer Erin Benzakein. Follow Erin’s step-by-step instructions on how to assemble this lovely summertime arrangement.

Step 4
Layer in a collection of supporting blooms smaller than the main flowers. (Erin’s bouquet includes ‘Kathryn Morley’ roses, ‘Scabiosa Yellow’ zinnias, and Collarette dahlias.) For the finishing touch, tuck in a few stems of an airy plant to fill out the arrangement—feverfew is a lovely ingredient for this task.
