With the Thanksgiving Floral Arrangement Class coming up I have been out in the garden gathering materials. Thinking about color palettes-wanting something bright and sunny for the table. Today I decided to cut up the rust toned mums which have totally had it in the container. Yesterday I started hacking some old grapevines out of the forsythia and thought a tangled nest at the bottom of my candle ring would be fun. I weaved some purple calicarpa in and around the base and tucked in some fun deluxe yellow-orange ilex berries. Ilex verticulata ‘Winter gold ‘ is a new addition to the garden this year and though it is still getting used to its new spot and is a bit tiny, I am grateful for any berries it will give me. I am loving the brown, yellow-orange rust palette that is going on here!! – roanne
