Creative Ways with Small Floral Arrangements


Fill your home with cheery surprises in the form of charming and fragrant Lilliputian lovelies. Be creative! Use your imagination to come up with unusual and enchanting containers for floral arrangements.


Pretty Perch
It’s no wonder this little bird looks so happy—his cup runneth over with a bright bouquet of mums, aucuba leaves, and other greenery. Perfect for any nook or cranny, this arrangement looks especially lovely atop a stack of books on an end table.


Child’s Play
Long after the kids have grown up, those precious sterling silver cups from their childhood days live on as vases for pint-size posies. Long-lasting daisies and button mums are ideal selections for an arrangement that will stay fresh enough to enjoy for days.


Petal Kettle
A teeny copper watering can is just the right size to hold a trio of brilliant orange gerbera daisies. Tuck in a few strands of ornamental grass and some leafy filler to create a personal floral display for each guest at the dinner table.


Roses in Repose
This floral display puts the “art” in artichoke. Simply hollow out the center, then fill with a striking combination of red roses, hypericum berries, and ornamental grass. While one alone is quite eye-catching, just picture an entire row of these truly organic vases lined up across the mantel!
