Petals & Hedges Summer Compote Design
Greetings flower friends ~
The arrangement pictured has to be one of my favorite things to design, a compote. Its basic design starts with a low footed container known as a compote. The addition of floral and plant material creates a low, flowing, elegant piece. Our compote design featured below includes florals chosen from my own garden and nursery. I picked colors and textured foliage that speak to the cooler nights of early summer, soft, elegant with a bold stroke. This design is a perfect addition to your summer buffet.
This past February I joined the Chapel Designers, ( led by Holly Chapple ) on a trip to New York City, we shared stories, attended conferences with amazing designers and took classes at the Flower School of New York. I am honored to be a part of this group of designers. One of the techniques we studied was the compote design a class led by Ariella Chezar. This class made a major impression on me. I love the Compote!! One of the designers from our group Isha Foss of Isha Foss Events decided weeks ago we should all make a compote and share it on our individual blogs. Posting our designs on the very same day. I hope you enjoy the post “The Compote”
The blog links below feature amazing compote designs from each designer.
Peace, Petals and Planting ~
