Spring Arrangements

.   After a surprise snow fall this week, I am desperate for  spring colors. We had just decided to put away the snow blower- big mistake- and my bulbs were beginning to emerge from the ground. And surprise- Monday morning I awoke to 6 inches of snow. Rather than cry, I decided to create arrangements of spring in some of my favorite containers- all with graphics.  There is something very appealing about beautiful labels, especially ones from the past.  Plus they add another interesting  dimension to  an arrangement-

 
Miniature orchids and a ferny moss in a wine basket.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A vintage champagne bucket with a beautiful label.




 
Love the contrast of the bright green and white muscari in the black champagne bucket.
 
Gold on black - you can't go wrong!

 
A silver loving cup filled with maidenhair fern, moss, eggs in a nest and muscari
 

 
A tussie mussie in an old trophy that "Fannie" won years ago.
 
Beautiful label on the bottle of Armagnac too! 

 
A single perfect rose in an old apothecary jar.  Much more interesting than
a single rose in a bud vase- right?

 
 
A little bit of color inside as winter lingers on and on and on.

So pretty. I think I will give it a try and get in the mood for spring. It will be nice to see some color.
