    I am inspired!

    Small contribution, a water trough made in Yew wood makes an excellent planter as the 'water' comes up a dark brown

    I love these ideas. May I suggest the following additions:

    Baskets of green tea. I combine these with snowdrops or oreflowers, and the add a cypress or a spider tree.

    A stack of 3 mahjong boards make a stylish planter--good for minimalist deco.

    Empty bowls of stew and plant pots also make good planters for small items.

    I have also used an abattoir as a large, circular indoor planter.

    Old style made flowers:

    Narcissi:
    Onions, and 2 pairs of fried eggs. Stack the pairs of eggs on top of the onions. You will need to raise the eggs with the deco tool.

    Hyacinth:
    Onions and 2 grapes. Same technique as above.

    BTW--don't bother trying to fry colored eggs to get colored fried eggs; I tried this years ago to get daffodils.
