Nothing pulls a room together and makes a statement quite like flowers. They set the tone and create a moment—an entire mood in a vase. These ready-for-summer arrangements embody some of our favorite decor styles: boho, modern, and traditional. In the video above, we’ll show you exactly how to put them together. It’s actually a lot easier than you may think.

While there are plenty of opportunities to use fresh flowers during the summer, faux ones have a few advantages like never having to be watered and lasting pretty much forever. Plus, if you’re giving them as a hostess gift, they’re more practical than fresh flowers since they travel well. Whichever you choose, here are some fun and easy ways to put them together using a few of our favorite recent Etsy finds.

For a boho vibe, a paper peony bouquet in a printed mug keeps things ever playful. The trick is to start with one bunch of about four or five stems twined together in the center of the mug and then to keep filling in with more groupings. Add a couple of decorative stakes, like this lavender-inspired stained-glass one, for visual interest.

To create a sleeker, more modern arrangement, opt for bright silk poppies in a sculptural vase or a glass hurricane. The simplicity of the flower is what gives it a minimal feel. Tip: Adding a little water to the vase keeps the faux incognito.

If traditional is more your thing, go for real flowers. A muted palette of fresh-cut flowers spilling out of a vintage vase is the perfect option.
