Mid Century Inspired

To go along with the two posts this week that used nostalgia as a theme, I decided to try for a hat trick. This third post is a complete surrender to the golden oldie impulse. Three mid-20th-century containers were in the staging area of the supply shelf,  just waiting to be used.


The four-footed California Pottery planter is an obvious choice. The coral pink with gold accents practically screams 1950s. A period inspired posy enables imaginary time travel back to the day.


The late 50s and early 60s come through in a modernistic rectangular planter. It even sports a couple of tail-fins. This design is reminiscent of the early space age, so I created an arrangement that is out of this world.


The 1960s are represented by this Royal Hager shell-shaped vase. A period-inspired arrangement fills out this rare example of Royal Hickman’s artisan-ship skills.
