A great idea for Mother’s Day is Breakfast in Bed. What is the best way to serve flowers along with breakfast?
For this occasion, I chose a small green syrup pitcher filled with pink miniature Spray Roses and Limonium. This pitcher could hold 2 stems of roses. I cut each rose stem in half and placed the larger clusters close to the lip of the pitcher. I then added the tall single blooms to the center of the clusters to give the arrangement height. I added the limonium for contrast.
The most important selection is the vase used on the tray. Remember, the tray will be small and usually balanced on the bed. Plus, someone will carry the tray to the bed.
I usually choose a small pitcher instead of a budvase. This allows more water for the flowers. Pitchers for cream or syrup are smaller and rounder for better stability. You can use a single bloom or multiple stems. Keep the blooms close to the base of the container. This helps to balance the arrangement.
Happy Mother’s Day!
