The second Floral Friday of the year features small vases that have unusual design elements. As is often the case for my hobby, the design cues of each container influence my choices of type, color, shape, and texture of the floral elements for each project.
The vintage monolith-shaped bud vase is reminiscent of Ancient Greece. A unruly bunch of predominantly red blooms disobeys the rigid formality of the vase.
The resin vase has the look and feel of old wood. The blue flower details encourage the use of pastel floral elements. The sloping, cut-away top allows for a grand presentation of the pink and baby-blue blooms.
The outrageous dark red chili pepper themed resin vase provides visual heat to warm up a cold Nebraska winter day. Warm orange and yellow flowers continue the spicy looks.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes legendary comedienne Gilda Radner. “While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die–whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness.”
