Unique Vessels: Magazine Rack

Happy Labor Day to all of my American readers, and to everyone else, happy Monday! I don't know how many of you have experienced this, but I lost some of the photos from one of my recent shoots, including the first two or three of the post I'm sharing today. It was a major bummer, but luckily, this post is pretty simple, so we are not really missing any steps that can't be figured out. For today's Unique Vessels edition, I thought that it would be fun to fill a magazine rack with flowers. It is simple and easy, quite portable, and looks great in the corner of a room, on the wall, or even on a table (resting against the wall). I used three types of flowers with different textures to keep things interesting - of course, you can choose any flower and color combination that you like. The rack itself is another fairly inexpensive (less than $30) HomeGoods find.

I placed a narrow container for water inside each compartment of the rack - it can be either glass or plastic (sadly, one of the missing photos).

Flowers: gerrando gerbera, african milkweed (the green balls), sedum

I started with the gerberas and sedum, then added the african milkweed for a fun and unique element (they are spiny, but not sharp). Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
