In A Vase on Monday -Triple Bubbly


This first Monday of November a challenge was issued to use threes in an arrangement. Given our now wonderful weather in Florida and the third anniversary of In A Vase on Monday I thought a celebratory arrangement was in order. Champagne is always a nice touch on a happy occasion.

Out came the flutes and the search was on for some bubbly flowers. I decided the flowers from the Firecracker Plant (Russelia) were red and bubbly enough and then added one Parrot Flower (Heliconia psittacorum) and a bit of Bromeliad foliage (Neoregelia spp) and a few sprigs of Asian Sword Fern complete the cocktail.

I found a relatively historic bottle of Cava in my refrigerator and added my mother’s relatively historic Fostoria ice bucket with matching tray to complete the vignette.

Here are the flutes without the wine. They are now perched on a table in my foyer.


And here is a single flute:


Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden blog for hosting this meme. Each Monday bloggers from around the world post arrangements from their gardens.

    Perfect way to celebrate, I love seeing flowers arranged in glasses in this way, I need to try it.


    • Thank you, not sure how I got started with that. I think I got some large shot glasses at my niece’s wedding that were perfect small vases. And I detest tequila, so they would never be used for their intended purpose.

    Oh that’s such a perfect interpretation of 3, and I like the inclusion of the ‘firecracker’ plant by way of celebration. I don’t think I have ever posted IAVOM in a wine glass of any shape or form, but it is SO effective, isn’t it? Thanks for sharing
