This floral design appeared at a recent outdoor party at the home of our Editor-in-Chief Margot Shaw. The gold finish of the compote vase inspired the choice of golden mustard roses. When layered with greens and soft whites, the color palette is perfect for the time between summer and fall.
The wide bowl of a compote is easy to work with and ideal for creating a loose, abundant garden-inspired look. Then, for the mechanics, we tried Holly Chapple’s pillow floral cage instead of chicken wire. This reusable item is a convenient tool for beginners and experts. While we opted to secure the cage with waterproof floral tape on our first run through, it is not necessary as long as the cage fits well in your vessel of choice.
