Oh my gosh, I'm excited beyond words about these Halloween centerpieces I just finished for a client's party on Saturday. It's amazing what a little Spanish moss and fishing lures can do!
The Corokia cotoneaster (the tree-like thing) was a new find for me- not a California native, but quite striking. If I have time tomorrow, I think I'll fill these empty spots with more purple Aeoniums.
I added a couple of muskrat skulls and some dried Clarkia seedpods. The muskrat looks like he's having a grand time!
The brown bottles strayed from the gray and purple theme, but they do add a little mystery.
Dyckia, a bromeliad (think pineapple plants and you get the general idea) might have to be added to my "I only plant California natives except...." list.
This was ridiculous fun to create. Happy Halloween!
