Orchid in a Clam Shell

I dropped my concrete clam shell off to Dunn & Sonnier on Magazine Street to have an orchid placed in it.

I picked it up this afternoon and love it. The floral designer not only added the white orchid but also added willow and English ivy. I adore the way in which the green ivy spills over the shell to soften it.

The shell was placed on the sofa table in the den. I love how the orchid brings the outdoors in. It captures the lushness of the courtyard beyond the den.

I thought this was funny.....
What color do you see now?

Orchids, y'all!


  1. Ron, that orchid loos perfect on the clam container. As a florist my self I am always looking at clever ways people use containers to arrange plants and flowers and let me tell you, you hit the nail on the head!!!

  2. Gorgeous, but you scared me when you first said you dropped your concrete clam shell.. LOVE LOVE the arrangement.

  3. So pretty, you can customize that clam shell so many ways. Love then orchid arrangement. I will work on your new look! xo

  5. You made the right choice placing that orchid there, perfect!

  6. Good morning, Ron! I'm with Babs--I thought you had dropped the clam shell when I first began to read this blog! ;) The orchid arrangement is perfect for the clam shell, and it looks great on the sofa table in the den--definitely brings the lushness of the courtyard into the den. Love the dress, too! Have a great day! xoxo

  7. Your orchid clam shell combination is beautiful! You are right - it brings the outdoors in.

    By the way, I see a rainbow and I'm happy about it! Now my son can marry the person he wants to marry when the time comes. :)

  8. That is gorgeous! I love how it looks and it does bring the outside in!

  9. I love it! What a clever idea. I also love your lamps. Have a Great Fourth of July!

  10. Ron, using the clam shell as a container is a fantastic idea. Love the look!
