Unconventional …Floral Friday

Floral Friday arrangements are usually unusual but not because of a deliberate attempt to be unconventional. Today is an exception to that rule of thumb. I actually set out to create projects that are just a little bit off base.

Placing mums inside of a conventionally shaped ceramic vase is OK but pretty tame. So, the basketwork covered vase with mums is topped with a dried palmetto leaf for fun.


An old earthenware planter becomes edgy with sharp, pointy greenery, a thistle head, and miniature trumpet blooms for good measure.


The small decorated vase was deliberately made to look off-balance by the artisan. Three yellow flowers accented by trimmings from a bamboo bush enhance the off-beat vase. The gold chain is used for added texture.
