For a recent event, Erin Wochos Hornstein of Plum Sage Flowers
in Denver created an earthy, elegant arrangement for a guest book and escort card display. "It was in a mercury glass pedestal vase, and mercury continues to be very popular this fall and winter as a container choice," Wochos Hornstein said. The arrangement held unusual materials, including dusty miller foliage, opaque dried moneytree branch, pheasant and ostrich feathers, curly willow, a bolsa wood bloom, a dried lotus pod, a copper cymbidium orchid, and a white larkspur bloom. "Feathers have been and will continue to be popular, but dried or wood blooms are becoming a beautiful new aesthetic for arrangements," she said. "I lined the edge of the vase with moss for an earthy feel."
