Antique Crock Flower Display

It's a beautiful summer day in Vermont and with that, I decided I wanted to put together a bouquet of flowers for our newly designed sitting room. Check out the complete sitting room here!

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 simply 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 in the gaps.

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!
