My friend Jorge dropped by this week and brought me a large basket of flowers. No, he hadn’t stopped by a florist to buy an autumn bouquet or anything like that. He had come across some old hand-made silk blooms. We estimate they were made in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
I was ecstatic with delight because they are the sort of vintage artificial flowers I enjoy most. Right away, Jorge helped me choose the containers to use for today’s Floral Friday projects.
I paired a green Abingdon jardinière with a contrasting hue. I formed a bed of leaves to help support the most delicate of the pink flowers.
A dark blue Bonsai bowl provides the base for a construction of natural tree bark pieces and a small array of more pink blooms.
There were just a few blue flowers left in the basket. The medium size Indian brass jardinière provides the exact metallic appearance I was hoping for. The final arrangement could be used as a December holiday arrangement, too.
