I picked this bouquet for my friend Vicki who is lovely and elegant. She hosted the last fire pit evening of the summer and I wanted this bouquet to be something that would hold it's own on a table in her stylish home.
I started with a round vase that I found at a garage sale for twenty five cents that had colored stones in the bottom. And I added deep purple Castor Bean Plant*, weigela, cape fuchsia, bears breeches, bronze fennel, and white Japanese Anemone. And right before we left, I added some grasses which aren't shown here and I removed the castor bean leaf on the far left of the vase. And I felt happy with it. And the best part was giving it to her!
