Just in time for summer, Bunny Williams designed a variety of floral frogs to make flower arranging easier than ever.

We asked garden and entertaining expert, James Farmer, to help us create three unique looks using each one of Bunny’s floral frogs — and we think you’ll love the results every bit as we do.
