Floating Flowers

The simplest flower arrangements need hardly any "arranging" at all.  I filled a Revere bowl with water and floated 2 Clematis blooms in it - Voila! 

The secret is in a simple (and genius) tool called a Floral Float.  It is a green cork ring that helps to keep blossoms from sinking in a water-based floral arrangement.  Get yourself a packet (it includes 4) and have fun floating peonies, roses and more in any vessel you choose.

I really like how the flower, surrounded by silver, grey and white, stands out.  The violet blue petals add the perfect touch of blue to my Swedish-style family room.  Remember my display of Spode's Blue Room dishes on the plate rack?  This flower arrangement is on a table on the other side of the room and ties it all together.  So pretty!
