DIY Rustic Garden Pot Floral Arrangement | Spring Restock Tomorrow

We have received so many emails about these rustic pots.  Of course, it is always the simplest things we are all so eager to get our hands on!  These pots are a perfect example - simple in form, aged patina, earthy color and so versatile.  When I first stocked them in March, I had many projects planned for them - a vessel for a hostess gift, pots for herbs, and using it as a vase for a floral arrangement.  I held off sharing this idea with you until they were restocked... tomorrow is the day!  Both sizes the Small & Med will be restocked tomorrow morning at 8 am (Eastern).

I love this idea because it makes a floral arrangement look rustic and garden-y.  I always use utilitarian vessels for floral arrangements like pitchers - I think they make them feel casual and less fussy.  Using a garden pot is the same idea.

I used a Plastic Kitchen Container (available here) to hold the water and essentially turn the pot into a water holding vessel.

I started with a base of greens to make it feel lush.  These are lemon leaves easily found at most grocery stores.  They stay green and fresh for weeks.

Then, I added 3 large hydrangea.  Our grocery store always has a big supply of white hydrangea so I often use them.  I make them look seasonal by accenting with daffodils and hyacinth in the spring, and magnolia leaves or berries in the fall.

I used about 8 daffodils to add some spring freshness.

Don't these hydrangea in the Tall Watering Pitcher look so lush and simple?!  Do you see a glimpse of that little creamware creamer?  Those might be on the restock list, too ; )

I'll see you in the morning at 8 am (Eastern)!
