By Crista Camerlengo

This year’s floral trends brilliantly combine traditional and modern elements to create breathtaking arrangements that will leave your guests saying, “Wow!”

Here are BELLA’s favorites… (open slideshow)

Opt for clusters of vases, ranging in height and size, full of vibrant flowers. Pictured here is an assortment of different height cylinder vases in monochromatic colors. The flowers include a deep pink cymbidium orchid stem, a pink mini calla lily, a tulip, a lisianthus, and a carnation, all topped off with a pink floating candle.

As shown, about $275

Think outside of the box by submerging your flowers in water. Here is an arrangement of light and dark pink flowers – including garden roses, spray roses, and peonies – flanked by pedestal cups with floating candles.

As shown, about $135

Combine your water-soaked flowers with candles in the same color palate for a warm, soft glow. Pictured is an assortment of square vases of varying heights featuring partially submerged stems, including a cymbidium orchid stem and a mango mini calla lily. Rectangular vases were placed on either side with three floating mango-colored candles.

As shown, about $200

If you prefer not to stray far from tradition, choose low arrangements in shades of pink or green and pair with stunning crystal candleholders. When in doubt, a low arrangement paired with votives can easily create an understated and sophisticated centerpiece that will be appreciated by all. For this arrangement, two short, cylinder vases of green hues were used. Pedestal cylinder candle holders with moss-colored floating candles were combined with moss- colored votive candles to create the romantic glow seen here.

As shown, about $200
