Spring to Life: Decorating with Creatively Collected Florals

June 20, 2017

Starting with a group of bronze containers,  Kellie Jackstien, Owner of Artisan Bloom, created a high-and-low composition of flowers and candles staged on low-sitting cocktail tables.

“I love to layer complementary, side-by-side arrangements and nestle them together,” she says. “You get the wow-factor of a large arrangement and the texture and depth of lower ones.”

An abundance of eggplant-hued tulips, fuchsia anemones, hydrangeas, artichokes, sweet peas, budded lilacs and tight clusters of gray-green brunia berries flourish on a backdrop of chocolate geranium leaves.

“You have to choose foliage as carefully as you do flowers,” explains Jackstien, who selected the geranium leaves for their  fuzzy texture and fragrance.
