Solo …Floral Friday

It’s been a busy, hectic week, so I have been craving simplicity. This urge has carried over into the week’s project ideas. I want something sweet and simple yet still sophisticated. I also wanted the visually interesting floral elements to be as eye catching as the containers.

A basic, garden variety chrysanthemum framed in slender leaves graces the richly colored Royal Haeger “onion” vase. This arrangement best demonstrates the ideal I wanted. I could have stepped with this, but a slight itch for complexity popped up.

The yellow Gerbera daisy in the yellow Shawnee planter is a more complex solitaire than first envisioned. I kept adding more elements until the pot was full. In spite of the project’s complexity, the two yellow elements keep the visual effect simple.

Blending simplicity and elegance resulted in a tropical display. The textured, golden glass department store vase holds a large Hawaiian Protea King bloom. A simple array of large leaves adds just enough extra visual interest.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Henri Matisse. “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
