I decided to focus this post on floral arrangements because I have just finished making 4 of them!! They are fresh on my mind! :-) You'll notice that I use a lot of burgundy and red in my arrangements. Right now just about all of my decor is burgundy red and gold. You should have seen the mauve flowers I used in my arrangements when I first got married! OH MY! ;-)
This large arrangement is sitting on my dining room table. I actually bought a smaller arrangement in this pedestal container at Canton. I used it in my kitchen and loved it! But, when I got my dining room table, the pedestal base was just what I was looking for to put on it. I bought some new floral stems and added them to this arrangment for a significant height difference and to make it look more formal.
I made the two arrangements on the sconces from scratch. And one thing I know... it is VERY hard to make two identical arrangements. It's even harder to make two arrangements that mirror each other! Gracious!!!
Another view of the dining room table arrangement.
The wall sconce arrangements have feather trim at their base!
These were fun to make and I think they turned out great for this room.
I made this arrangement many years ago. It sits on my entry hall table.
This particular arrangement has been everywhere! Right now it is in my entry hall and is also visible from the window beside the door. I just love the versatility of floral arrangements! They look good just about anywhere!
I originally made this arrangement for my fireplace mantle. But, in this house, I've decided to put it on top of my piano. Do you see the red flowers trailing down the front?? Those are flowers made from crystal beads. I just love them!!!
I made this flower arrangement to sit in my gold trinket box and have it displayed on my bedroom coffee table.
This is another arrangement that I originally bought, but I have put it in a new rooster container and added many more stems, feathers, artichokes, and berries. It's home is my kitchen table.
And finally, this is a new arrangement I just made for my master bedroom. I used a lot of stems, sticks, and greenery for this one.
Now, I really need to focus on some runners and scarves for a few of the arrangements to sit on.
I made this topiary arrangement almost 7 years ago when I found out I was pregnant with Mallory. I made it for her room and it's still there today. It got a little messed up in our move and the ribbons I used really need a good fluffing.
