Designs by Talmage McLaurin, AIFD

     Perfect for a mom who handcrafts, this patchwork-inspired arrangement features bits and pieces of ribbons and fabrics in a variety of patterns. Each square, which is cut with pinking shears to prevent unraveling, pulls colors from the flowers to the vase. These vases can be prepared in advance and ensure a use for scraps of ribbon. To complete the design, a small hand-tied bouquet is simply dropped into the vase.
