A Pitcher Full
Ingredients
  • Flowers:
  • 12 assorted dahlias
  • 5 snapdragons
  • 5 stems of astilbe
  • 6 stems of yarrow
  • 6 stems of gaillardia
  • Vessel:
  • Ceramic pitcher
Method

1. Start by trimming and placing three large dahlias in the pitcher so that their blooms rest an inch above the rim and lean out in different directions.

2. Trim and add another five dahlias so that the blooms lean out a few inches higher than the blooms on the first level.

3. Trim and place the remaining dahlias at the highest level in the center of the arrangement. Twist the dahlia stems on both levels so that their blooms face in different directions.

4. Trim and add all of the snapdragons and stems of astilbe toward the top of the arrangement so that their tips reach out a few inches above the dahlias.

5. Finish by tucking in the stems of yarrow and gaillardia to fill the gaps between the other flowers.
