Spider Mum Solitaires …Floral Friday

Our local supermarket doesn’t always sell spider mums separately from grouped assortments. However, whenever they have extra singles, I usually get one. The point is, I really enjoy the various types of spider mums. A single flower seems like an entire arrangement. With that happy thought in mind, I decided to create three solitaire arrangements that star a spider mum, each in small containers.

The tangerine color flower is at home in a vintage Indian brass vase. Some simple garnishings give the project pizzaz.

The vintage Shawnee miniature basket is a recent, lucky, one-dollar find from Goodwill. The yellow bloom and berries coordinate with the planter’s trim glaze.

The Japanese art-glass vase supports a dark purple spider mum. The project’s shape is inspired by Ikebana.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes novelist, William J. Johnstone. “A chrysanthemum by any other name would be easier to spell.”
