Blue Accents …Floral Friday

This week, I came across a bargain price for miniature blue peonies. This was an offer too good to pass up, so I snagged a dozen and a half of the blooms. Ideas about how to utilize them began developing. I chose three medium size vases then set about filling them.

A vintage, hunter-green cone vase by Hyalyn Pottery of North Carolina contains a posy of various flowers, including the blue blooms. A blue, neo-carnival glass, Fenton fairy lamp accompanies the arrangement.

A no-name, Chinese manufactured vase is home to a cluster of the peonies. Meanwhile, a Mandarin-numbered clock stands by for the time being.

The contemporary, sleek, art-glass vase supports poppies and peonies for a color balanced presentation. The familiar blue jay figurine denotes special status to the project.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Vincent Van Gogh. “There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”

  1. As always, you’ve arranged things beautifully. My eye was drawn especially to the clock in the second photo. It’s cool.

  2. Nice work! I really like the 2nd one with a delicate vase next to a solid clock. It’s a good contrast!

    The Chinese vase, although manufactured, is a delicate beauty. I’m always charmed by the smaller pieces you choose to accompany the main course.
