Ivy And White …Floral Friday

White flowers with green ivy is the theme for this week’s projects. This combination is a timeless combination that works well for most types of flower arrangements. The mixture adds lightness as a counterbalance to weightiness. Today the weight is in the form of heavy containers.

The thick, abstract, tan and brown vase uses mechanicals of common ivy to support the large white lilies. Other types of greenery complete the green with white idea.

The tall Bavarian beer stein made of crockery contains a solitary gladiolus stalk. A collar of small ivy and off-white moss roses add visual support.

The very heavy marble urn is the base for a dramatic trio of Gerbera daisies. The composition is held in place by two varieties of ivy.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes 18th century statesman Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield “A young man, be his merit what it will, can never raise himself; but must, like the ivy round the oak, twine himself round some man of great power and interest.”
