We found a French source of inspiration for our next set of Mother’s Day flower arrangements.
This basket has a set of three bottles, and an iron handle with a “Fleurs” sign. We added a little jute around the necks of the bottles and around the sign handle, then inserted one stem of Bells of Ireland (should that be “belles d’Ireland?) and some purple freesia, anenome, agapanthus and statice. A touch of montecasino (similar to September wheat, that grows in the fields) and some green button mums, and a dash of hypericum and bear grass. Voila!
Our designers just love this purple and green combination! Now see the companion piece, Reverie 2:
This design features green Anastasia chrysanthemums, viburnum, purple anenomes and a touch of purple statice. There is a collar of salal greens around the outside, and the bouquet is set in a pretty clear glass vase. Ooh la la! Who says Mother’s Day has to be stodgy?
