looking terra-cotta pots, or paint
the pots using a faux-moss tech-

McLaurin, AIFD, demonstrate
how.) Plant one pot with a
Cryptanthus. Add liners and
floral foam to the remaining
pots, and arrange them, with
the largest pots near the center,
in a wooden tray.

Add flowers in groups to each of
the pots, starting with the largest
containers. Arrange garden roses
in one and an upright Cymbidium
orchid spray, based with a clus-
ter of statice, in the other.

Weathered terra-cotta pots and a distressed wooden
tray provide the foundation for this assembly of “potted”
flowers. Inside the tray, the pots and saucers are tipped
and angled to enhance the natural look.
