Florist-to-the-hipsters Kathleen Hyppolite of Kat Flower displays her gorgeous arrangements at the Brooklyn Flea, a flea market in Brooklyn, NY. In our slideshow, she shares some great tips about how to condition flowers before arranging and how to load your containers with textures and pops of color.
At the flea market, Hyppolite arranges her flowers by color and type, selling buds by the stem. This is also a simple way to create a chic look in your own home, she suggests. Pick two colors, buy a few stems of flowers in each hue, and arrange simply in a glass vase with greenery for an unfussy arrangement that looks modern and fresh.
