China is from Replacements.com
All the china is from Replacements.com
In the previous post, we discussed the way I use objects of interest to decorate an arrangement. Here are more of the flowers I’m considering to go with the china plate I have chosen to use as my focal point. All the flower pictures came from provenwinners.com. The plate came from replacements.com and is a Royal Albert design.
The watering can will be raised above the arrangement and will appear to be watering the flowers. The watering cans are made by Haw. I got there from gardenscapetools.com. The top watering cans are $45 each. I will secure the plate in place by making a tripod out of natural material. The plate will be placed toward the front of the container and at an angle so it slightly sits hidden perhaps in the angelonia shown in the pink bottom picture.
The arrangement above is a special order from one of my customers. She doesn’t care what I use and gives me free reign to choose as I see fitting for her garden. Her style is cottage and that is an easy style to work around. I am working on about 10 arrangements for her and having a blast with each one. I have to be ready to go with these arrangements the first of May. The nursery where I purchase my flowers is aware that I need somewhat mature plants and they must have plenty of blooms.
So there you go guys and gals. A little about how I set my arrangements apart from the rest. Tell me what you think?
