Florets - Floral Quote - # 54 - by Louise Curley



"Use your imagination when it comes to what to put your flowers in. Although you may have a suitable tall plain glass vase in your home, there are so many other containers you could use that will add a touch of individuality and quirkiness to your display. 

The only really essential requirement of a vase is that it is watertight. It is best not to pick something with a wide neck or one that is very big. It will take a considerable number of flowers to fill them, and they will be difficult to arrange and will tend to be quite floppy, because the container will not be able to provide enough support."

Agreed! I prefer not to use vases. I think other vessels add interest to the flower arrangements.

I think Ms. Curley would be VERY happy with these bottles, Ingrid. I just love old bottles, especially he ones with the metal tops.

Wishing you a beautiful week, my friend. xo.

Ingrid, your photo has reminded me to search out the whereabouts of a pretty little green pitcher I have around here some place. I think it will be a perfect place to hold some daffodils.

I've also made a note to buy some daffs on my next day off, as well as to look for some primroses.

You do inspire me! xo
