Winter Styling: Antique Fruit Bowl

Happy Monday friends! I know that I missed my post last Friday, but it has been crazy busy for me between the holidays, weddings, and events. Nonetheless, here I am. Back in action! I warned you about my obsession with amaryllis during the holidays - it's just that they are readily available and in such beautiful variety that I can't hold back. For today's post I decided to use an antique fruit bowl I purchased at an estate sale some time ago as my floral vessel. The glass bowl has a wonderful pinkish hue, and a silver-plated holder with a lovely patina.

Flowers: hydrangea, amaryllis, passion vine, garden rose, hyacinth, geranium Kiana Underwood /

Begin with the vine. I used three stems total, two in this shot and the one more at the end. Kiana Underwood /

Add the geranium. This particular kind is quite delicate and will wilt quickly if the stems are not in water. Kiana Underwood /

Place the hyacinth on one side and allow them to drape a bit over the bowl. Kiana Underwood /

Add the hydrangea. I'm generally not a big fan of hydrangea, but the lacecap variety is really lovely and you might see more of it being used in my future blog posts. Kiana Underwood /

Arrange the amaryllis inside the vase. A great thing about amaryllis is that each stem can have up to 3-4 flowers, so you don't need that many total stems. Kiana Underwood /

Finally, add the juliet garden rose. Also, remember that one stem of passion I had saved? I used it here to add a little more drama to the design! Kiana Underwood /
