Here is the first arrangement I made...with things I already had.
I purchased this silver (aluminum) bowl last year. And I have used it all year long! It has sported a variety of arrangements from simple to more contrived.
I love that I can just lay sprigs of greenery, or fruit, or ornaments in it and have a cute and easy arrangement. Of course a formal arrangement looks great too.
Ok, let's start at the beginning.
I placed a few sprigs of red berries into my bowl to create a base. (If I were a "real" florist I would probably start with a foam base. ha!)
Next, I added some faux holly with berries.
I played up the "east-west" shape of my bowl by placing my sprigs beyond the edge of the bowl.
And finally I scouted a Christmas bin for some pretty red ornaments. They seem like huge red berries. Fun!
I am not sure where it will call home for this Christmas season. But it will fit in I am sure.
My table has three arrangements that I have put together in the last few days!
I put all of my Christmas storage bins in the floor of the great room...then I begin playing!
I hope you are inspired to make a pretty bowl or basket after seeing how easy it can be. Easy is what I prefer. ha!
