It’s a beautiful summer day in Vermont, and with that, I decided I wanted to put together a bouquet of flowers and an antique crock for our newly designed sitting room.
To begin, I made a trip to the local supermarket to see what they had on hand. Not much, I’m afraid! So, I started with some white carnations.
I started with this antique crock and a glass jar that would hold the water and flowers inside of the antique crock, along with some Hosta leaves. Hosta leaves are great fillers for bouquets, and they last quite a long time, too!
I filled the glass jar with water and placed it inside the antique crock. This will be the base for the flowers.
Here, I cut the flowers to sit into the water, leaving a little gap from the edge of the antique crock so that I could fill the gap with greens from the backyard.
I picked a variety of Hosta leaves from the backyard and started filling the gaps in the antique crock.

I felt like it was going to need a little more color, therefore, I picked a few red lilies from our garden beds!
Pin these ideas for later!
