White flowers are always so beautiful and lend elegance and sophistication to any event.  Whether for a simple summertime dinner party with friends or for a full scale wedding, white flowers combine effortlessly to any atmosphere. 

Here they are arranged in simple white glazed pottery from the Pottery Barn.  This design was created for an all-white birthday party using white hydrangea and globe allium with textured greens such as spirea, false Solomon's  seal , ferns and myrtle. 


For a table setting, low square vases filled with white flowers also make an understated yet sophisticated choice.


 To achieve this look I took a small square vase and added white lavender sprigs, a white hydrangea, lisianthus, stock, sweet peas and lambs ear.

The garden can also be a source of inspiration for white flower arrangements.  Right now all the garden roses are in full bloom.  I picked a few stems this morning along with white lavender, astilbe, and dried hydrangea blooms. 


The possibilities, as the saying goes... are endless.
