Multi …Floral Friday

The vast majority of flower arrangements are composed within vases, planters, and other pots with a single opening.  Today, I decided to use containers that have more than one opening for flowers. That’s how I came up with the name for today’s offering to you.FF021315b

The item that inspired today’s direction is a beige Tuppercraft sprouter.  The thrift store find was minus its three planter inserts, so I decided to go ahead and use the base as a planter, instead.  Three groupings of onion grass are all that are needed to make a funky kitchen accent.

I dusted off an elegant Hull double cornucopia vase I haven’t used for a few years.  A 1940s inspired loose arrangement of colors that harmonize with the peach and green glaze work best to warm up a February room.

I like this old Abingdon white double cornucopia vase.  It was sitting idle on the same shelf as the Hull vase.  After a good cleaning, I decided that layering was what I wanted to do. Off-white, bright, light red, and yellow make a cheerful sight.

mini-moiThe Blue Jay of Happiness likes what May Sarton had to say about today’s topic.  “Multiple, mixed, ambiguous at best–out of it we try to fashion the crystal clear, the singular, the absolute, and that is what is relevant; that is what matters.”
