Late March Experiments …Floral Friday

I get a bit antsy around this time of year and want to climb outside of my comfort zone. I can do this while causing no harm to man nor beast by tinkering with unorthodox floral techniques. There’s nothing radical here today, only some ideas I’ve been pondering for the past couple of days.

The first project utilizes a mid-century space age planter vase. I decided to incorporate a spherical greenery cluster as two-thirds of the arrangement. Small pink flowers highlight the remaining third.

It’s been quite awhile since the Target circle vase has been in circulation. I brought out some special, archived, blue silk magnolia blooms that I purchased in the late 1990s. Such flowers are traditionally displayed in trays or shallow dishes. I’ll probably keep this arrangement on display for a few months.

“Shaker And Things” pottery manufactured this horse decorated flower bowl. Muted earth tones and creamy yellows keep the project mellow.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes audiobook narrator, Lance Greenfield. “Outside the box” is an overused cliche which goes nowhere near far enough. In fact, there are so many politicians and salesmen thinking outside the box these days that I am convinced that all of their boxes are completely empty!”
