|The vase that accompanied the flowers I received for|
Mother's Day has become my favorite for arranging greenery.
Silks are especially helpful if the home you're selling is unoccupied, because they look beautiful without any attention.
|If you prune shrubs around your home, use the trimmings like these |
Euonymous clippings to make a simple arrangement in glass.
|Almost any plant gives you something to work with. This |
bud vase holds the strappy leaves of daylily plants.
Whether it's that spa-like vibe you want in bath or bedroom, that spotlessly clean feeling in a kitchen, that sophisticated mood in the living room, or that uncluttered sensation in the foyer, glass is your go-to floral container.
Glass vases will never clash with a room's color scheme. And they won't steal the show from the arrangement itself.
|These branches of Photina I cut from a hedge on the edge of my yard didn't look|
like the sole makings of a striking arrangement, until I removed the leaves.
|These are the same Photina branches. Don't be afraid to remove parts of plants |
to focus exclusively on more interesting parts. A fishbowl makes an ideal container.
No yard or garden? No problem. Most florists will sell assorted greenery like ferns and stems
of tropical plants. If you regularly buy floral bouquets for your home, remember to save
the greenery after the roses or daisies or lilies have lived their lives.
Be bold. Try placing just one stem of elephant's ear plant or long needle pine in a glass
vessel. Chances are it will look downright elegant.
