Have you seen the work of Paula Hayes? She is sooo talented and makes everything from 'living' sculptures (aka terrariums & aquariums), to planters to a succession of threaded air plants to make 'living necklaces' for both you and your home! She also has created a series of beautiful silicone planters in imaginative, vibrant colors and displays them successfully both in her landscape designs and art shows. She is one cool lady! Check out her site and be ready to be blown away!

I got to make some tiny, lovely arrangements this past week for a dear friend's birthday, and I have to say, I enjoy making teeny arrangements. It's like little jewels sprinkled around a table, staggered on top of a mantelpiece or tucked in a bookshelf that catch you by surprise. They don't scream for center attention like some of the larger arrangements, but instead sit patiently, a pocket of beauty awaiting your attention. I find them intimate. Quiet. I always appreciate the little details. I used some of my very favorite wildflowers, including anemones, veronica, scabiosa, chocolate cosmos, delphinium & green berries.

When I saw this picture it's what I really wanted to recreate for Green Feast. Sadly, it was not in the budget for a 192 ft. table! HA! But one of these days, when I have my own backyard, I'm going to have a summer's feast and this is what my table will look like: a pile of dirt down the center of the entire table and a bunch of wildflowers planted along! I can't wait*
