pinecones scattered…? branches scattered and/or coming out of the bouquet? Crumpled up leaves?

How about putting a platemat underneath everything in a brown or deep green color?  You could also do accorns scattered instead of potourri.  I was also thinking you could try to push the arrangement down a bit more so it covers more of the glass.

I think that you should add branches that come out of the flowers like the picture below.

I would also add a thick wood slice to set your vase on like the picture below.

So the actual potpurri isn’t workable because of the staining, but what about a reasonable substitute? Leaves, acorns and pine cones? Dried flower petals in red, oranges, and yellows? I really like the way it looks if it could be replicated with a non-staining substance. πŸ™‚

The wood is a good idea, so is the placemat or some kind of runner! I like the branches coming out of the top if you want them taller, so basically I like all of the ideas…. sorry, probably no help, but I love where you are going with them and can’t wait to see the finished product!

I agree I think it needs something underneath, may a ribbon or something to add detail to the pot.

I would just use silk leaves underneath. I also like the idea the PP had about adding a few branches for height.

I’m thinking a nice bright ribbon around the vase.  πŸ™‚  I do like the potpourri scattered, so maybe like pine cones (like a pp suggested) or something?  Or Cinnamon sticks and rose petals?

First of all its really pretty. I’m with the pp about scattering something or putting something under, and the branches.  I might also try not binding the bouquet at the stem but rather just placing it more naturally in the mason jar. And maybe less flowers or an accent color flower. I mention this because, to me, the bouquet is a little too “put together” (monochromatic, stiff, etc.) for a simple rustic feel. Nevertheless, like I mentioned previously, its really pretty.
