Video: Tuscan Villa Collection

Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by:  Lisa B.

The colors of the Tuscan landscape span a range of rich hues - the dusty greens and golds of established vineyards, the bright orange terracotta and red brick of the cities, the deep blue sky and bright waters of the coast. 

Pioneer Imports & Wholesale captures that nostalgic palette in a vibrant range of permanent botanicals and accessories called the Tuscan Villa Collection. This quick video tutorial explores the potential of this collection by creating an example centerpiece design as demonstrated by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD.  

Vonda builds this composition around a perfectly coordinated container – the Maverick metal compote – also available from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale.

Silk eucalyptus in a dusty blue serves as the first addition to the centerpiece. Vonda carefully places each pick to radiate from the center for width and height. Next, she takes pieces trimmed from the silk spiny wood fern bush in yellow/orange and creates a halo around the edges for a nice downward trail.

Tall picks of silk sweet pea in gold serve as a perfect addition to the middle of the design, adding height and balancing the yellow of the fern.  

Vonda saves the bolder colors for last. Large blossoms of turquoise silk hydrangea stand in dramatic contrast to the warmer tones used throughout the centerpiece, immediately capturing attention and adding energy to the composition. Silk ranunculus in fall orange heightens this contrast and contributes a greater sense of visual weight overall. 

The result is warm and nostalgic with fresh energetic elements – a reflection of an adventure into the Tuscan countryside. 

You can find the silk flowers used in this demonstration along with the rest of the Tuscan Villa Collection readily available from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale, plus a wide variety of coordinated wholesale containers and accessories to match.
