Fall Fireworks Arrangement
Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2010
With its bold combination of burnt orange and midnight hues, this seasonal arrangement is "as festive as a bowl of Halloween candy," gardening editor Tony Bielaczyc says.
To re-create it, start with the privet; its woody stems offer good interior support.
Then work in the bittersweet, the petal-free echinacea, and finally, the gerbera daisies and the ornamental peppers.
Trim some of the stems so they stand upright, and let others drape dramatically over the side of the vase.
