HomeblogFabulous fishbowls While many people will be familiar with the use of calla lilies or tulips swirled around the sides of a fish-bowl vase, I decided to explore a variety of flowers and textures using a limited colour palette to unify the design. This combination includes pink Gypsophila, Ladies Mantle (Alchemilla mollis) green Eryngium, purple Hydrangea and Alliums. Despite the use of traditional, or indeed old-fashioned flowers such as Gypsophila, the effect is quite contemporary.

Many thanks, Mel Reply Sam May 25, 2012 Love it! How did you make the Gypsophila behave instead of falling about all over the place? Is it in oasis?
