The handles of this basket were made with curly willow, cherry blossom branches and larkspur.
The container can be covered with moss, foliage, rosemary, lichen or twigs or any combination of these textures.
A terra cotta saucer (or you can use a dinner plate) was the ideal container for this bright spring arrangement, made with forsythia, tulips and daffodils, and lots of texture at the base. Want to embellish a buffet or entrance? Here is the answer!
Whimsical beargrass is woven through this bright spring arrangement.
Bright ranunculus “grow” out of scrumptious texture; the ‘organic’ container is covered with miniature artichokes.
Wreaths are perfect centerpieces for round tables!
Live bulbs and miniature plants are mixed with river rock and lots of texture. Later, the bulbs can be planted in pots or the garden; make sure not to remove the foliage til after it has turned yellow – this way all the nutrients will be stored in the bulbs and you’ll enjoy them for many springs to come. The indoor miniature kalanchoe and african violet plants can be re-planted too.
Purple primulas, fringed tulips, fritillaria and sweetpeas show off in this whimsical spring woodland arrangement.
Hellebore and fritillaria complement the wild mushrooms and maidenhair fern in a detailed image of the previous arrangement.
Bright kerria branches ‘grow out’ of the dense spring green texture, highlighted by bright kumquates and clusters of kalanchoe.
Blooming pink ribes emerges from a dense arrangement of pink spring flowers; jasmine and amaranthus create movement as they trail down the container covered with aspidistra leaves.
This sqaure vase was lined with flax leaves; a long stem of ivy secures this pink topiary.
A checkerboard of pink and green roses is framed by small clusters of korean lilac and equisitum
