It's impossible to predict the weather across the country this time of year, but one thing is for sure... Southern California is living an endless summer. With temperatures in the 80's and rising, it's hard not to pretend that this summer might just last forever. In honor of the heat and sunshine, we opted for some bright and cheerful stems from the LA Flower Mart.

We've never been head over heels for sunflowers but when we saw this bright orange variety with the dark centers, we couldn't resist. We matched them with some tangerine colored Marigolds and bright pink Zinnias, creating a burst of color for all corners of the house!

Like most of our creations, we built the arrangements stem by stem. First placing all of the Zinnias in the vases, then adding the marigolds and finally placing the large sunflowers. We decided to keep a lot of the greenery from the stems to add some more volume.

The bold colors instantly brightened each room they were in and were the perfect accessory to dinner alfresco that night. If you aren't residing in a place that's 72 & sunny, try mixing and matching some bright stems for your living room. It will be an instant reminder of summer.
