Hope this inspires you as you begin a new week of creating amazing floral designs…

Happy Monday!




  1. I was so psyched to see Cori’s arrangement included! These are all so beautiful, probably my favorite kind of container! I hadn’t been familiar with Amy Merrick before – that arrangement is gorgeous though and now I have a great new blog to follow – thanks Amy!

  2. I love footed vases! They create such an elegance, especially when flowers droop over their edges.

  3. Nicola says:

  4. megan says:

    footed vases are my favorite type of container 🙂

  5. Liz Rusnac says:

    These are all so gorgeous Amy! Thanks for brightening up my hectic Monday 🙂 I love all of these vessels – they’re so classic and romantic, but can be modern when done right too! 🙂

  6. my favorite is blue-green vase – “bows and arrows”. Perfect photo and flowers too!

  7. Janet says:

    Footed vases are my favorite containers to work with. They make flowers seem even more special. The flowers become sculpture – the footed vase a pedestal lifting them up off of the table…
