Wire fencing and clay pots bring
the ambience of the outdoors in.
Full of fall and perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors, this display
gets customers thinking about autumn cultivating and planting. Columns
of wire fencing paired with inverted clear plastic trays provide airy,
sturdy pedestals for clay pots filled with permanent botanicals. The
pedestal in the background is based in a large clay saucer, and the wire
cylinder is filled with randomly stacked smaller pots. The pedestal in
the foreground not only holds a pot of lilies but also encircles another
pot filled with “bulbs” just beginning to break into bloom.
MATERIALS: permanent lilies from Silk Botanica; permanent
artichokes from Natural Decorations, Inc. (NDI); clay pots from
Compradores; 11-inch Designer Trays from Syndicate Sales; wire fencing
from local nursery.
