Trick #2

This is where the fun comes in.

  1. Find items around your home or local florist that will bring out the theme, colors, spirit of the event.
  2. If you must have peonies in July, find some beautiful Permanent Botanicals, add them. If anyone says something, reward them for being so smart; share your trick with them.
  3. In the Autumn add dried pods, berries and grasses, a pinecone and colored leaves.
  4. Using Permanent Botanical fruits and vegetables is a very common practice.
