For the Home

Consider a favorite piece of artwork in your home or office as a source of inspiration for a floral arrangement that captures the glorious tones of fall. We've chosen a print entitled “A Coup D'Oiel,”custom framed in our Olmsted Collection and taken from one of the George Vanderbilt’s beloved books in his Library.

The warm sepia tones of the print blend with most décor, and our Floral team has created a stunning tribute that draws the eye, just as the print’s title suggests!

For this fresh fall arrangement, begin by placing dampened floral oasis foam in the decorative tin container. The foam should fill the space, but not be visible over the top of the container. Add enough hydrangeas to cover the floral foam and provide a lush, mounded layer of subtle color and texture. Add taller elements such as solidago and curly willow toward the back to give the arrangement a bit of height. Fill in with lilies as focal points. Allow greenery elements like the ruscus to trail naturally over the sides of the container.
