The stems were cut fairly short so as not to disturb next year's blooming so I needed a short vase of some sort, went rummaging and came up with this amethyst rose bowl that's been kicking around since the 80's. I collect vases mostly for their interest as empty objects and that doesn't always translate well into being vessels for holding blooms.
Vase, what vase? It vanishes atop this fabric.
Also grabbed some Callicarpa berries from an arrangement from a couple of weeks ago that was still hanging out.
How about a little boost from a stand?
Inside it's nice and warm and fun to play with different settings for this hastily thrown-together arrangement. The wood stand and figurines were gifts from my friend and neighbor, Sandy.
