How to create a classic bud vase arrangement with the Hibiscus Bud Vase from Vietri.

STEP 1- Create a Base

It’s really easy, start with a base of some simple airy greenery. Here we are using some bupleurum that we picked up in a bouquet of greens at Trader Joe’s. But you could get adventurous and use herbs or other greenery you might have growing around the house. 


Hint- As you put your glower in keep turning the vase to make sure it looks good from all sides. 



STEP 2 - Select A Focal Point Flower

Here we are using a fantastic orange rose as our focal point flower. Make sure to cut all your elements short when working with a bud vase. You want a tight, compact display.


STEP 3 - Fill In

Once you have your green layer and focal flower in place, start filling in with smaller flowers and other textures. Here we are using coleus and rose hips as an interesting texture and color. 

Hint - Your longest stem should not be more than 1-1/2 times the height of the vase.



STEP 4 - Sit Back And Admire!

Today, we remember Kate Spade for the spirited refinement that she brought to her namesake brand that inspired us to immerse our lives in color.  

She will forever be associated with the spirit of celebrations, both big and small.

With her designs and her words, she taught us to appreciate all parts of ourselves, even the quirky parts, and at the same time, permit ourselves to feel empowered and beautiful. 

For many young women, their first Kate Spade bag is a rite of passage to adulthood.

She leaves behind a legacy and vision of creativity that will surely inspire young, emerging artists and designers to carry forth.

Here at Outside Inspirations, we remember her family and loved ones at this difficult time.

Rest easy, Kate.
