European Garden in my Silverplate Punchbowl

I generally keep 3 large white orchids in my silver-plate punch bowl  year round.  This summer has been exceptionally hot and the orchids did not fare very well.  I decided to brighten things up a bit by creating a European garden.

I’ll reuse the punchbowl for my garden because the scale will create a lot of impact.

To get started, collect a variety of plants. Choose 1 tall plant, 1 that will drape down and a flowering plant. My container is large so 6 plants are needed to fill it up.  Going with varying shades of green and textures will give my arrangement a lot of interest.

To construct the garden, first pop a plastic liner in the bottom of the container.  This will protect it and your tabletop from leeks.

Add the tallest plant first towards the back of the arrangement.

Continue to add plants until you have a balanced garden.

Use crumpled paper or even better, foil to boost plants if needed and to hold them in place.

Fill in all of the blank spaces with a variety of moss.

This will bring the whole arrangement together and give you a cohesive European garden.

I just love it!  It is like a little bit of the outdoors right in my living room!

If you don’t already have a silver punch bowl, I thought you might like this one! It is an upside down pineapple.  SHOP NOW
