A Floral Welcome

A Floral Welcome

This wonderful pocket vase adorns my front door, containing curly willow, garden hellebores and pretty white summer snowflakes.

Front door bouquet

A fresh and inspiring way to adorn your front door: a floral vase filled with spring blooms!


10 stems garden hellebores (Helleborus orientalis), grown by Jello Mold Farm

12 stems summer snowflake (Leucojum aestivum), harvested from my garden

1 stem curly willow (Salix matsudana ‘Tortuosa’), harvested by Oregon Coastal Flowers


9-inch tall x 6-inch wide, teardrop-shaped wall vase (4-inch diameter opening)

Design 101

Just add white: There are some floral designers who abide by the “rule of white,” which calls for adding white flowers to every design. Take a look at this arrangement and you’ll notice that a few white blooms go a long way. The bell-shaped snowflakes are smaller than the plum-colored hellebores, but they add a lot of cheer to the design. Especially when viewed from a distance, white flowers are impactful, making any arrangement young and fresh-looking.

    This is beautiful. It makes knocking so inviting.

    So beautiful, Debra! Where did you get that wall vase, and how does it attach to the door? A customer asked me about such an item last summer, but the only clear window/door vases I’ve found are cheesy plastic and are really unattractive.

    HI Susan: Thanks for asking! This vase is from ROOST and it is a recycled glass wall terrarium that Jayme Jenkins gave me to play around with. She sells it on her web site, AHa! Modern Living
    The back of the piece is flat and has a hole, which fits nicely over the screw from which I typically hang the Christmas wreath during the holidays!
