Delightful Dendrobium Orchid plant into a rustic metal urn
Of all the flowers, I think that orchids are possibly the only flower that likes to stand alone - resplendently.
To be that exotically beautiful, nothing else is required to enhance. The Dendrobium orchid plants from Prestige Botanicals are exquisite and need nothing but themselves to make a statement.
My display reigns supremely at our front entrance and never fails to impress. The great thing about them being permanent botanicals is that lack of light is never a problem.
Things to gather:
- Dendrobium Pink Orchid - it is a beauty off-white with salmon pink lips and markings. How many you need will depend on the size of the vessel being used.
- The cast iron rusted vessel was created simply by first undercoating and them applying 2 good coats of rust effect paint. Once dry all you need to do is roughly apply a coat of the etch. I like to leave mine a good week before sealing. The longer you leave it the more it rusts out. It doesn’t need to be a metal container or surface either. The rust in the paint reacts with the acid that gives the rusted look. See my video on rust paint here:https://youtu.be/7JnWH2ftH00
I think that dogwood blossoms far outshine cherry or the other blossom families. The size, the beautiful white flowers with their darling little detailed petals, make these exceptional specimen blooms that really can hold their own or solo in a vase.
