There is no secret that I love flowers. Especially tropical florals and tropical plants. And I have my share of silk ones.
A few weeks back I went to Hobby Lobby to take advantage of the floral sale from 50% up to 80% off silk stems. This gave me the opportunity to stock up, update old and create new tropical arrangements.
I did a simple arrangement for the family room coffee table with one large Bromeliad, a small Anthurium with fern leaves.
The before with fresh roses was featured in the post Copy Cat Coffee Table Vignette. I changed the container, added the silver parrot and changed the candy dish to a glass jar with cobalt blue glass stones.
In the morning sun room I added another Bird of Paradise and small tropical floral stems to the vase arrangement.
I completely changed this corner vignette. I thought this new arrangement is less cluttered and gives more attention to the tropical arrangement.
This floor arrangement I only used two floral stems. A simple quick update.
This floor arrangement has changed many times but I love the large Bird of Paradise.
Before, on the wall entering the guest room was a tropical painting, a few changes and now this vignette gives more of the tropical feel I wanted to create.
Another tropical accent is to use only large palm leaves. I love the bold, dramatic look of this type of arrangement. And it’s so simple.
After we trimmed our bird of paradise plant and split leaf palm I rescued two palm leaves before trash pick up. I preserved both by spraying them with super high gloss glaze. Silly I know, but until they scream “Linda please let me go” they will stay. I loved how the large Bird of Paradise leaf coordinates with the Tommy Bahama fabric pillow sham.
After seeing beautiful large palm leaves in vignettes I wanted to do a video of my favorites. It puts me in a Tropical “Don’t Worry” Caribbean “Happy” place. 🙂 Enjoy…
If tropical florals is not for you, but you want a bold tropical feel, try oversized palm leaves as an option. If you love tropical flowers, which can be costly, try silk stems. All you need are just a few to give you that island in the sun feel.
