With spring in full bloom I’m more aware of my bright surroundings. I’m playing more. I feel like I can breathe more easily. I notice things better. We collect cake stands and adore using them for plants. They become cute little terrarium atmospheres. And so I threw this together. You can try this technique with one larger plant, but a little vignette like this is pretty. A bird’s nest, a miniature orchid, some violets. I found the violets over Valentine’s Day and gave one to my mother as a gift, and kept one for myself. Their containers are vintage cheese makers from France. Clever what people can do when they’re being creative with what they have around.
So if you’re feeling adventurous over the holidays, or just want a little cheering up, put together your own vignette. It will put a smile on your face.
