December Experiments …Floral Friday

Some ideas have been trying to catch my attention this week. A few of those ideas relate to floral design. In order to flesh them out, I needed to tinker around with them. Three containers that have been idle for awhile were the basis for some experiments.


A mid-century revival hand-blown red glass vase needed just the right finishing touch–nothing complicated. After trying several different types of solo blooms that didn’t quite satisfy the itch, I decided to use these golden “orbs”. There is a certain space-age quality about the finished project.


The brown with fire-orange drip glaze detail is a “California Designs” vase. There are three holes on the vase lip to be used for suspension twine. The vase has been waiting for a suitable, period appropriate vintage macramĂ© hanger. I don’t know if the right hanger will be found soon, so why not use the container as a conventional vase? This arrangement is suitable as both a table accent or a hanging display.


The ivory-white Haeger vase provides the base for some archived 1990s silk flowers. All of the elements, vase, flowers, and accents were manufactured within the same time-frame.

  1. Morning. The middle one especially catches my eye. I like its asymmetrical display. Enjoy the weekend!
