LUSH & LEAFY

Real Simple - - Relating -

MAIN IN­GRE­DI­ENTS: We used win­ter bell helle­bores, polly alo­ca­sia leaves, and um­brella ferns. Al­ter­na­tives in­clude an­thurium or hosta leaves.

HOW-TO: Forage from the back­yard or prune a few leaves from your in­door plants to col­lect green­ery of all shapes and shades. Pre­pare your vase with a loose sphere of flo­ral net­ting. Squeeze the net­ting through the neck of the vase, and then reach in and ex­pand the sphere a bit so it stays put. Start by ar­rang­ing a few el­e­ments around the open­ing of the ves­sel and build up in or­bits to make the re­sult feel or­ganic.

PRO TIP: If you’re plan­ning to set this ar­range­ment in the cen­ter of your din­ing ta­ble, keep the pro­file low so guests can see one an­other over the top.
