white phlox in vase arrangement

I have some white 'Minnie Pearl' flowers that were all broken off in a storm yesterday, so I cut them and brought them in. They look lovely, but I need something to jazz up the vase arrangement. Either this year or next! What are good companions--preferably ones that I can grow in the garden rather than buy?

Maybe some more phlox in muted shades? Or shades of pink and white phlox? Deep purple cosmos would also make a nice contrast if you use the white as filler.

Or you could do a few all white bouquets and add more white flowers in varying shapes like the seashell cosmos and white zinnias. You could accent the white bouquets with some dramatic dark green leaves for contrast.

I Have Echinacea blooming with phlox. Just the ordinary pink type, but they look nice with phlox. I also use Molucca, Bells of Ireland, I like the columnar form with open phlox.
