As the sun comes out and trees start to grow back their leaves, we're left inspired to bring some more greenery into our homes—or at the very least, to our phone screens. Even if we only purchase the discount bouquets from our local bodega, following florists on Instagram has shown us just how entrancing floral arrangements can be.
Combining succulents with peonies and baby's breath with poppies, these florists know how unexpected pairings can result in the most magical of creations. And as they continually post photos of their awe-inspiring arrangements, we can only look on with wonder. It's safe to say that these 10 florists have a gift, and we just can't get enough. Flip through the gallery to see the colorful floral inspiration that's currently captivating us.
