One of the best parts of being a flower farmer is obviously - the flowers - and having them available year round makes it even better. First, the protea bloom, then the waxflower, pincushions and leucadendron and soon the fields are overflowing in a rainbow of colors. Not only do I enjoy growing and harvesting flowers, I love seeing them beautifully displayed in trendy and unique ways. So as you can imagine sometimes an ordinary vase just doesn’t cut it when a pickup full of fresh flowers arrives from the fields. It’s fun to create a gorgeous hand-tied bouquet and experiment with a few special containers to see just how they fit. Once you find that perfect combination of beauty along with your personal touch – the display becomes BEyouTIFUL!
Love containers: Here’s a few of my favorites:
Metal Buckets: Nothing says “From the Field to the Vase” like a flowers displayed in an old metal bucket.
Pitchers: The more unique, the better! Pitchers are beautiful, curvy works of art in and of themselves, but adding blooms makes for a colorful piece of art.
Antique Tins: Lucky you if you already have some lying around, but if not you might want to search out your local Thrift Shop.
