fresh and renewed – flowers in a turquoise glass bowl

June 4, 2013

Not sure where or when I happened upon the turquoise glass bowl for today’s post but it most definitely was discovered at a flea market. I have had this bowl set in my vase collection for a while now and I have yet to use them, saving them for a rainy day as they say.

I have been thinking about experimenting with floral frogs lately, as it has been years since I have designed with one I figured I would combine the two for today’s Fresh and Renewed floral arrangement.

I little thought about the turquoise glass bowl set, I have it in my head that it was used for entertaining by a very stylish lady. It would be perfect for serving food in or candies. I think need to do some entertaining soon and use the set for the table centrepiece.

That was fun! I really enjoyed working with the floral frogs in the glass bowl, going to have to start using them more often!

Have you ever use a floral frog before? If so how did you like designing with it?
