Diy Design Project: Spring Veggie Garden
Veggie Garden Tablescape
A spring garden to rival that of Farmer McGregor's
Every year for Easter we create various vignettes for our bunnies to ‘hop’ around. One
of my favorites is to individually pot a variety of vegetables, allowing them to be shifted around to suit the setting and/or collection of bunnies, chicks, ducks or other barnyard critters. Rather than designing a large arrangement of mixed vegetables, the individual pots are much easier to assemble and can then be used as components in a variety of ways.
Any collection of pots suited to each other will work, but I usually use a collection of terracotta pots and paint them with a ‘mossy finish’. Terracotta is available in a multitude of shapes and sizes, readily available and inexpensive. Of course they can be used as is and look fabulous, but the terracotta color isn’t always suited to the setting, and sometimes less contrast between the plants and container is better. The mossy finish is the perfect neutral (If you want to see how to create the mossy finish check out our video: http://www.shophouseofdesign.com/#!painting-techniques--mossy-pots/csm2
