Do you remember this arrangement? I used it for the centerpiece of my Citrus Sorbet tablescape a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty tall and airy, the kind of work I usually do...but I was inspired to try something a little different. So for this Met Monday I wanted to morph a sizable arrangement into a low, roundie, moundie (yes, I do make up my own words!:)
I've had these cylinder vases, you've seen them before too...
I nested the smaller vase into the larger one like this:
It created a "pocket", for lack of better word, of 1/2" or so.
And then guess what? I found artificial lemon slices!!! I had not seen these before, and you'll never believe where I got them! Joann's Fabric and crafts, I know, right?
It took six bags; a total of 26 slices, and they were only $3.99, and I used a coupon too! Now this may have been my imagination....but I swear they smelled lemony! :)
I filled the vase up with the lemon slices all the way to the top.....
Here it is! I'm still enamored with yellow and orange, even though I had a hard time putting away the turquoise from last Thursday, I love that color pallet too...things don't stay the same around here for long...my taste ebb and flow like the tides!
This is perfect for summer...I think I'll keep it around for a while (maybe:)Thanks for visiting, and thanks again Susan!
Happy Metamorphosis Monday! Michelle
