Base Blue …Floral Friday

This might be an unpopular opinion: I get tired of the amount of red and green decorations at this time of year. Although I enjoy that combination year around in judicious doses, the red and green motif is way overdone in December. So as a public service to my readers, I’m kicking off the December Floral Friday posts with the color blue. Each of today’s arrangements uses a ceramic vase coated with blue glazes.

The first vase is the star of the post. It’s a dark blue Rebekah vase. It was inspired by the Rebekah, the kind lady at the well who went on to marry Isaac according to the Bible tale in Genesis 24:11-22. This vase was crafted by artisan John Garrou in Black Mountain, North Carolina on February 10, 1993 according to the signature on the bottom of the vessel. I feature pinks and purple as the flower colors.

A tall “Threshold” cobalt blue vase is home to a solitary gladiolus stem. There is a nod to red and green because the shop was out of the other varieties. At least this stem is more of a red-orange, not a primary red.

The light blue, USA Pottery urn planter is home to a funky blue magnolia. Most of the other accents take blue to the next level.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Major League Baseball All-Star great, Yogi Berra. “The only color I don’t have is navy brown.”

    All gorgeous, Jay.

  3. It is good to have variety. I like some Christmas carols, but all of the Christmas music on repeat on the radio becomes repetitive. These are quite nice.
