Florets - Floral Quote by Lotta Jansdotter




"I like to use everyday vessels rather than traditional vases in my flower displays. Many wine bottles have nice shapes and colours that work well in a groupings, for example.Or, why not use a mixture of drinking glasses, served up on a tray, and display them in the living room?
Placing a single branch or a stalk in a vessel gives a nice, clean look. 
Placing a few flowers in a bowl of water is another lovely way to make a simple arrangement."

Ingrid, what fun to see these words from Lotta! It seems to me that you and she share delightful ways of thinking about how to embrace natural beauty in inventive ways.

You all inspire me, too. xo
