Unique Vessels: Farm Fresh Toolbox

The other day one of the lovely SF Flower Mart vendors had these beautiful wild artichokes and I thought it would be fun to do an arrangement in a wooden toolbox with a farm-fresh feel. I wanted to do an arrangement with segmented clusters of flowers and fruits for a little change. I think that sometimes flowers and fruits look even more beautiful when they are placed separate from each other. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Flowers: garden rose, artichoke, persimmon, blackberry Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

I lined my toolbox so that I could put water in it. I did not have a long enough container so I used three of these plastic containers next to each other. Note: My photographer was making me laugh in this shot - I was trying to keep a straight face! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This is a segmented arrangement, so place each ingredient together as a bunch inside the box - to me this is more like putting together a fruit basket! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Continue with each ingredient until finished - and that's it. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
