We have received so many emails about these rustic pots. Of course, it is always the simplest things we are all so eager to get our hands on! These pots are a perfect example - simple in form, aged patina, earthy color and so versatile. When I first stocked them in March, I had many projects planned for them - a vessel for a hostess gift, pots for herbs, and using it as a vase for a floral arrangement. I held off sharing this idea with you until they were restocked... tomorrow is the day! Both sizes the Small & Med will be restocked tomorrow morning at 8 am (Eastern).
I love this idea because it makes a floral arrangement look rustic and garden-y. I always use utilitarian vessels for floral arrangements like pitchers - I think they make them feel casual and less fussy. Using a garden pot is the same idea.
I used a Plastic Kitchen Container (available here) to hold the water and essentially turn the pot into a water holding vessel.
I started with a base of greens to make it feel lush. These are lemon leaves easily found at most grocery stores. They stay green and fresh for weeks.
Then, I added 3 large hydrangea. Our grocery store always has a big supply of white hydrangea so I often use them. I make them look seasonal by accenting with daffodils and hyacinth in the spring, and magnolia leaves or berries in the fall.
I used about 8 daffodils to add some spring freshness.
Don't these hydrangea in the Tall Watering Pitcher look so lush and simple?! Do you see a glimpse of that little creamware creamer? Those might be on the restock list, too ; )
I'll see you in the morning at 8 am (Eastern)!
