Follow along with this quick video as Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD creates two gorgeous permanent botanical arrangements using the Watercolor Garden collection from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. 

This wholesale silk flower collection features a whimsical blend of soft pastels and punchy vibrant hues across a spectrum of pinks, lavenders, greens, and beyond. Using the Watercolor Garden line is a fantastic way to create your own Monet-inspired designs that exude a peaceful springtime vibe. 

In this video, Vonda creates a pair of companion pieces – perfect for display together. Both are arranged in the fresh mint-colored Fremont bowl, a cool mosaic design that offers a contemporary decorative touch. 

Vonda begins with the short and wide version of the Fremont bowl. She places an initial tuft of voluminous silk hydrangea in lavender, stems trimmed short. A selection of silk cabbage rose in yellow blush is added as a distinct grouping to give the arrangement a modern asymmetrical feel. A small spray of silk dusty miller finishes the piece with natural flair.

Next comes an arrangement for the taller container. Vonda begins by adding silk dusty miller around the edges to create an elegant collar. Tall, long stems of silk sweet pea stand at the center of this design while lavender hydrangea forms a bed of silk petals at the bottom. 

Vonda begins to fill in the middle height portion with a peppering of peach silk ranunculus. You may notice that she ends up with one left. Vonda simply tucks this final piece in with the first arrangement – a great way to tie the two pieces together. Long stems of rich magenta helleborus adds one last splash of color to ensure this tall composition stands out as a true focal point.

The result is a fabulous pair of permanent botanical arrangements great for display together or apart. Both capture the spirit of springtime using smart design techniques and, of course, the light and airy Watercolor Garden color palette.
