When I think of bold and beautiful colors
they might not be as bold as you might think.
And they might lean more 'romantic' style
and softly bold and beautiful.
Which softly bold is kind of not bold... I know. But I am talking
rich amethyst, plums and ...ahem (blush) and maybe a few pops of green.
And today I am joining some of my favorite friends to share bold and
beautiful inspirations for spring.
And when trying to decide what to work on for this post... of course,
I went down that flower path again
and brought some of those more rich tones into play.
(I know that surprises you... haha)
With tulips, roses and stock...
You might remember that last year I played with pretty purple cabbages
and create a charming centerpiece marching down the table for Easter.
(that one might be my favorite!)
So easy. And so fun.
Honestly, if you haven't carved a cabbage into a vase for a armful of pretty blooms
it should be on your to-do list.
I had both green and purple cabbage
and decided to tackle the green first.
It is St. Patricks Day after all.
Choose a cabbage that has a nice flat bottom
It is much better than having to cut off pieces to try to get it level.
Decide how many flowers you plan to use
and carve your cabbage accordingly.
I used several bunches of flowers for these cabbage arrangements so I went ahead
and created decent size holes.
Just remember to keep in mind the height of your cup or container for the water.
You want to make sure the container is short enough- or the cabbage is tall enough- or both-
to hide the cup.
Then start filling your containers until you are happy with the fullness and shape.
And then it is time to play a bit.
I brought 2 of these cabbages outdoors for a few photos- though between you and me,
I wasn't even planning on doing an entire table setting.
But the sunshine in the trees spoke so loudly to me- I had to capture it.
I paired these green cabbage arrangements with simple white plates,
amethyst wine stems and those gorgeous purple recycled glasses.
I found both sets of glasses at HomeGoods on a recent stop- along with ruffled napkins,
blush dishes and so.much.more.
But you can pair those cabbages with any color for spring and they will be gorgeous.
And I am loving the green for spring and Easter table settings-
what do you think of it?
I am thrilled to be joining these great friends this beautiful Friday
stop on by to see their color inspirations as well.
