I recently spotted this arrangement (above in the middle) online by a company called Botanica. I loved its simplicity and the ability to change it up seasonally. When I inquired the price for this arrangement, I was shocked. Antlers, moss, and a faux bois container for $398.00... WOW!!! I do not think so, y'all!
I had a large set of antlers that I purchased from an antiques distributor while I lived in Atlanta. The antlers were originally attached to the skull, but I had the contractor use his skills and cut the antlers from the skull. The antlers are large and impressive.
I brought the antlers along with the photo to floral designer Chad at Dunn & Sonnier on Magazine Street. I purchased a new container, and for less than $200.00, I had a unique arrangement. The addition of moss adds to the natural feel of the arrangement.
I envision using it in the coming months to decorate for Halloween (crows on the antlers, fake eyeballs at the base), Fall (branches and Fall leaves, acorns at the base), Christmas (red berries in the center, ornaments handing from the antlers). Your suggestions are appreciated.
The antler arrangement is perfect on the central stair parlor table.
An antler arrangement, y'all!
