In my rush last week at the event for Eddie Ross, I didn’t even realize that I had snapped some images on my phone. I am enamored by the various containers that I either sold to attendees or brought home. All were sourced by Outdoors Contained, who graciously did all the centerpieces, from a local church thrift shop. All the proceeds from the Rye Presbyterian Church thrift shop go to various local non-for-profits, so it made their choices even sweeter.
Decanters, tea cups, tea pots, brass vases, porcelain bowls and a glass swan, all became the perfect vessels for genteel arrangements that were a nod and a wink at our speaker, Eddie Ross, and his “Modern Mix“.
So, the next time you find a one-off of anything, think about how it might work as a vessel for an arrangement and not necessarily what it was intended for. What’s old…is then new again!
