Summer Bounty

Textural flowers and foliages intermingle in this delightful collection that draws the eye while fragrant garden roses invite one to linger and recall sunny summer days in the garden.Crafted with plenty of dimension, each ingredient’s natural beauty shines as the advancing and receding positions of the blooms add depth, interest and the illusion of natural movement. The base of Hydrangeas and carnations adds a richness to the collection, which is perfect for a centerpiece, casual display at home or a summer party.
