Of the vase sets for the three arrangements in this DIY series, the vase tree I'll be using here is my favorite. I purchased it from my local Pottery Barn store a while back on sale for $20. I call that a great buy! I have received many compliments on it from my guests. Using left over flowers from other occasions is a great way to get reuse and cost savings out of your floral buying. Here I have used one of my Poinsettia plants which was still in perfect condition a month after Christmas. Poinsettia, along with the Japanese Privet berries, and some beautiful pink-colored Camelias from my garden make a gorgeous color combination for this corner piece.
What you will need:
- Floral shears/scissors
- Vase tree (as pictured) or any other eclectic hanging vases
- Poinsettia plant or other unusual 'leafy' plant
- Japanese Privet berries
- Pink (or your favorite color) Camelia flowers
Begin by placing Poinsettia leaves in each of the vases.
Similarly, trim and add the Japanese Privet to each vase.
Finally, trim and add a Camelia or two to each vase. Does it get any simpler?
