So Simple …Floral Friday

In life, it turns out that the simple pleasures are the most satisfying.  So it is with many of human artifacts.  Apple’s high tech products became successful largely on account of their simple styling.  The streamline movement of the 1940s and 50s was successful in large part due to clean, simple design.

Whenever possible, I try to utilize simplicity in the floral arrangements for this blog. Today, I take this idea and run with it.


This old, heavy wallpocket planter has a shallow area that can actually be used for plantings. This factor automatically limits the complexity of any floral design.  In this case a creeping plant becomes the foundation for a tiny posy.


A very small, baby blue McCoy flower pot is perfect for a very simple statement. The cluster of pastel blooms works well with the ivy themed pot.


Greenery and blue “berries” complete the easy care nickel plated vase.  This turned out to be simple without appearing spartan.
