Matching containers in an array of hues make it easy to create monochromatic designs and polychromatic groupings.

Design by Christina M. Burton, AIFD


    Sold by the six-pack, these miniature flower pots lend themselves to a colorful array of flower varieties that will create widespread appeal among consumers. The petite pots, which have tulip-flared rims, each require only a few floral and foliage insertions, making these monochromatic arrangements quick for designers to create as well as affordable for customers, who may select just one as a hostess gift or the entire polychromatic rainbow of colors for a fun composite party centerpiece. A few snipped blades of bear grass further unify each container’s contents.
This concept is perfect for reducing waste and ensuring profit, especially from short or broken stems. And since the pots are petite, they each require only a small piece of floral foam; a half brick, in total, is used for all six arrangements.
