Pythagoreans said that the number three is the first true number because it is the first number that forms a geometrical figure. In their minds, the triangle symbolized harmony, wisdom, and understanding.
Three is significant in many cultures. For example, in Zoroastrianism, the three basic ethics include: Humata–to think good, Hukhta–to speak good, and Huveshta–to act good.
Many of us like to use the old phrase, “The third time’s a charm.”
With these thoughts in mind, here are three arrangements that have three at their hearts.
The black walnut Danish Modern bud vase provides the base for trios of paper roses and poppy pods. This was inspired by reading a book about the Apollo Seven space flight in which, a trio of astronauts went into orbit.
I really like the heavy glass tri-colored bowl from Teleflora. The warm tones bring out the friendly side of winter. The three stems of fill flowers continue the theme of three.
These three little vases are bound together with cord to form a unit. The larger pots contain bamboo while the small pot contains a solitary spiky chrysanthemum as the heart of the arrangement.
