Shape …Floral Friday

Aside from color, shape is a major ingredient in flower arranging. Today I combined differently shaped containers and paired them with interestingly shaped floral elements.


I began the exercise with an inexpensive department store vase patterned after the classic Roman style. Radical, bright, pointy, star-shaped day-lilies make an eye-catching statement.


A standard “onion” vase from the local Target store reflects the shape of poppy pods. The end result is somewhat futuristic.


The Napco planter is patterned after the 1948 Cadillac convertible that featured a groundbreaking shape for its era. The subdued color of this container calls for the bushy shapes, and bold color of this variety of gerbera daisies.


I had a left-over spider mum from another project this week. I paired it with a primitive, small globular vase. The overall shape of this bonus arrangement somewhat resembles a figure 8.
