Different and Fun!

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Here is a fun idea for an arrangement for a long table, preferably 4-5′ wide.  Inspired by a picture that I had seen in a book, I asked Martin to create a long, narrow metal stand, that was about 10″ tall. This way the arrangement stays below eye level and doesn’t  impede conversation across the table. Votive candles also could be incorporated amongst the flowers.

The clematis from the garden was a perfect addition to the viburnum, lilacs, dogwood, hellebore and sweetpeas.

Thank you Linda, from Barclay Event Rentals, for providing the table and linens!

Spring Flowers in a Cold Frame

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Cold frames are magical: they offer a perfect transition for seedlings that are grown indoors or in greenhouses, before the young plants have to face the daily elements of Mother Nature. They also are used to extend the growing season of vegetables.

My eye caught a miniature version of an old fashioned cold frame and it seemed like a perfect ‘container’ for an early spring woodland arrangement.

Flowers and Vintage Vases

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Vintage style, vintage dresses, vintage vases,… vintage is IN this year!

Old bottles of various sizes and types  make an interesting and imaginative collection to fill with spring flowers. A few of these vases clustered in the center of a round table or a selection in the middle of  long narrow tables  look fabulous! And how about decorating a mantle with a variety of them?
