Fresh Ideas for the New Year
By September, floral designer Sybil Sylvester has withstood the summer heat and is ready to forage for flowers, leaves, nuts, and berries to use in sumptuous fall arrangements.
Instead of rust and gold, these plum-toned arrangements explore another side of fall.
The concrete faux bois d’arc containers lend themselves to the color palette. In the larger arrangement, I used agapantha lilies, seedpods massed with eucalyptus foliage, heather, tulips, allium, and ‘Rubra’ astrantia. The log contains eucalyptus seeds and pods mixed with astrantia, heather, nigella pods, artemisia, leycesteria, and pitcher plant heads.
