The showy petals of Icelandic poppies in this beautifully free-form floral centerpiece (above) are repeated in a delicate sugar-flower scatter upon the tallest in a series of mini-cakes. Buttercream flowers and a sugar ruffle adorn the second and third cakes of the trio. The floral arrangement’s pastel and leafy palette is rounded out with butterfly ranunculus, caramel antike roses, limelight hydrangeas, white dahlias, scabiosa, blushing bride protea, astilbe, hellebore, a variety of eucalyptus and wild clematis foraged from Provo Canyon.

“I always try to include something foraged from the canyons both near where I live in Provo or from Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons in all of my arrangements.” —Sydnee Lund, Gather Floral
