The Foliage Challenge

A few weeks ago I posted a Challenge on Flirty Fleurs – the Challenge was to Design an arrangement of foliages, berries, fruits, etc – but NO flowers!
All materials must be collected from your property or surrounding area. For this challenge we will say within 1 mile of your designing location.

The emails with photos came in from across the USA, Canada, UK and New Zealand! Something in the Challenge must have really appealed to our neighbors to the North as we have quite a few from British Columbia!! I’ve been amazed and impressed with the arrangements that have been designed simply using non-flowering materials. Check them out for yourselves:

  1. Great challenge Alicia! Loved being part of it – and congratulations to all the talented particpants! Keep your floral ingredients as local as possible – it’s an amazingly sustainable practice that allows you to live in the seasons! Debra

    Beautiful submissions! I especially like the one from Moss Floral in Fort Worth, TX!

  3. Love them all gives me some great ideas. Thank you for posting my picture.

  4. These are all just beautiful and so inspiring. I missed out on this one but thought you might like to see a centrepiece I foraged entirely from my autumnal garden (oh, and the fridge!) here in the South West of England. It contains maple leaves, grape vine (and the grapes!), ivy and blackberries – UK. http://on.fb.me/I4uyf7
