Winter Styling: Pedestal with Berries

A couple of weeks ago I found this lovely pedestal serving dish at Pottery Barn (no longer online, but still available in stores). I really like the look of it, and I thought it would make a lovely vessel for a winter arrangement. In thinking about the design, I wanted the flowers to stay mostly contained within the vessel and not drape so that the textured metal pedestal would show. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Flowers: ranunculus, peony, ornamental kale, lisianthus, fern, red winter berries, cones Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Begin with the heavier items. These berries would crush all the other flowers if placed on top of them, so I used them as the base from which I could secure the other flowers. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This fern is particularly lovely because of beautiful little balls it has hanging from the stems. They eventually turn into very tiny white flowers. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Add the lisianthus and ranunculus. They add some height as well as grace to this arrangement. However, their stems sort of have a mind of their own. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Place the kale on the opposite side. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Add the peonies. Just 2 or 3 for added body and fill look amazing. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Finally, I added just a couple of cones for a wintery touch! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Portable Wall Cones DIY

I picked up these lovely wall cones from Anthropologie, and have several of them clustered on one of my smaller wall areas where they display a rotating mix of floral art. In this DIY, I've nailed them to an old wooden pallet for portability. Your portable floral art display can be moved to wherever the party is happening. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

When peonies are in season (which is relatively short), I just can't help but use them in just about everything tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Ranunculus and sweet peas add a great pop of color and some delicate texture tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood
