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!

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.

    Beautiful arrangements! Europian arrangements? What whould be the definable difference between these arrangements and American style arrangements? I've always need to know what's new & unqiue in these type of gifts.

    Because I grew up in Belgium and trained with florists there, my work definitely was and is influenced by European floral design. It is very detailed and structural.
