A visit to Garden Fever turned up 4″ pots of Ranunculus asiaticus in the color of orange sherbet. I had the silver pots (vases) from the table decorations for a summer wedding. The nursery pots slip right into them, deeply enough to hide the plastic.
We were having friends to lunch, and Susan (one of our guests) had given me the 3 silver candle holders that echo the color and shape of the pots. Sherbet and cookies for desert carried the theme even a step further. I guess this is cheating a little bit, because the flowers didn’t come from my garden, but they will be headed there now that they have served their purpose as table decorations. Cathy, at Rambling in the Garden is very forgiving of stretching the definition of ‘In a Vase on Monday’, so don’t hesitate to join in, or at least check it out.
