So last week I made a cute arrangement in little red wagon that was a wintry collection of pine cones and twigs - apparently the client did not want a winter look but was more interested in a spring arrangement based on something that had been done before with wheat grass and gerbers. It was too late to order wheat grass so we covered foam with moss and used lycopodeum for a feathery grass, put large gerbers into stem tubes and then water tubes and voila.
Pretty cute. I also loved the tiny wagons used as napkin holders.

Today I have been working on a sample for a dinner next week. The host is providing little red wagons - about 10 inches long - and they want a piece made of up cones and stuff kids might pick up outside.

This first piece began with the purchase of this beautiful chunk of amethyst last week. I wanted to use it as an integral part of an arrangement and was happy to get this large echevaria blossom in a great purple color. I put the amethyst in the vase and propped the blossom on the top, added some smaller chunks of stone in the lower part of the vase and finally put some brunia in for more texture. An interesting note - when Ruth saw this piece, she liked it but noted the water level and we raised it until it became a better part of the design as a whole.
