Potpourri As Accents …Floral Friday

I like to keep some potpourri in a wide bowl to provide a very subtle fragrant note in the living room. Occasionally some bags contain shapes and manipulated dried elements. I set aside some of the crafted pieces in order to utilize them in floral projects. Today, I show off three projects that feature potpourri as integral elements.

A tri-color glass bowl contains a cactus as the main attraction. A paper flower and a crafted polyhedron object from a bag of potpourri complete this simple arrangement.

A hen and chick plant is nestled in a vintage McCoy planter surrounded by chunky potpourri and a dried spherical made of twine. The Mikasa crystal vase contains fruity elements.

The base is an antique Roseville “Donatello” hanging basket made in 1916. The project was inspired by post-modernism then utilized dried shapes and potpourri.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Michael Jackson. “I never think about themes. I let the music create itself. I like it to be a potpourri of all kinds of sounds, all kinds of colors, something for everybody, from the farmer in Ireland to the lady who scrubs toilets in Harlem.”
