This arrangement is meant to be seen from all angles. It's fun to have the sun behind you and try not to take the photograph with yourself casting such a shadow. The cut crystal vase dictated a Victorian, cottage look. The flowers, alstromeria, lisianthus, shrub roses, mums and limonium are small in scale and their uniform size makes the arrangement cohesive. We stretched the arrangement outward with some greens and curly willow branches.
