Flipping through Luc Roymans's photography portfolio, I was struck by this image of an oversize, sculptural vase on a dining table. While the tendency for a vase of this size is usually to fill it with tall, overwhelming blooms, I love the way that this vase has been underfilled.
Using only a few stalks of Bells of Ireland, the vase, not the flowers, takes center stage. Not only is it a striking design statement; it's also an economic one. Just because your vase is overwhelming doesn't mean your flower bill has to be as well!
