Take a rusty iron chair and add some
sheet moss, floral foam and fresh roses
and you have a fabulous garden piece.
I bought two rusty chairs years ago from my local
and almost every year I have some kind of shower
or garden party that I deck out the chairs for.
It is especially nice to be able to do them when the roses
are in bloom in the garden, but I have purchased
A little ivy draped along the legs and top help to soften
The sheet moss will last all summer and the chair has a large
garbage sack under the moss to hold in the water.
The roses can be wound into the ivy but because they aren't
in the water they won't last as long.
I showcased three kinds of roses in the chair today.
They are at their peak.
This view shows the moss covering the plastic and
the floral foam.
The chair was made for garden arrangements as it has a bottom
and a lip. I lined it with a clear 33 gallon trash
bag cut down to about 6 inches high. Floral foam
then fills the bottom and water is added to keep the
foam wet. The flowers and greenery cover the foam.
I just twisted the ivy around the chair.
And I tucked roses and alyssum into it.
You could use any flowers you have.
It only took minutes to transform and the flowers can be replaced
when they wilt.
Ready to move into place.
In this shady side of the deck they lasted
Enjoy your flowers!
