Textured Vase with Blooming Branches

Oregon Bride Magazine ordered a couple of large arrangements for their booth for the Portland Bridal Show this weekend. It is such a delight when clients  give us carte blanche; thank you Heather!

For years I have decorated endless numbers of small containers with textures, but never a large vessel. I bought the largest French bucket that I could find and covered it with moss. And then I glued hundreds of succulents, berries and blossoms. Patience definitely was a big part of this project…The intricacy of the vessel was off-set by a large bunch of blooming honeysuckle branches. Blooming branches were a bit tricky to come by, but luckily Glenwood Farms had these fabulous bunches. Photographer Ted Mishima came by yesterday to capture these beautiful images. We were lucky that the sun decided to be part of the experience.
