Trade in traditional Easter lilies and pastel cut flower arrangements for contemporary spring and Easter arrangements using small potted plants and accessories in soft soothing colors. Nature provides the inspiration for these arrangements from floradania.dk a Danish company that markets Danish pot plants and provides new ideas for their home use.
The nine arrangements presented here use monochromatic containers influenced by patterns from nature, feathers, eggs and twigs to enhance the simplicity of potted plants. Floridania.dk publicity describes these arrangements as "calm, harmonious and feminine."
Allow yourself plenty of time to find components if you want to faithfully construct these arrangements. Of course, the arrangements shown here may always be used as suggestions for self-expression. Searching for components may be time-consuming, but can be viewed as a scavenger hunt.
Small living plants in two- to four-inch pots may be found at local florists shops, Lowe's or Home Depot, or online at Logees Greenhouse or Terrarium & Fairy Garden Plants at Amazon. Of course, quality small silk plants may be substituted for living plants. These are found at locale wholesale florists supply or craft stores.
Find unusual containers at garage sales, second-hand stores or craft shows. Try searching local craft stores like A.C. Moore, Joann, and Michaels for accessories like twigs, branches, feathers and eggs, and containers. Another shopping solution is to try online sources like Curious Country Creations, Flora Trims or Country Cottage Primitives.
