Salvaged Container for your Forsythia Branches

Flowering branches are abundant right now and cutting a few branches is a heavenly addition to your home.  Hunting for unusual containers is a passion for me.  This salvaged colander became a vessel for arranging forsythia in a spring feature I produced for Good Housekeeping.

Turning this vintage colander upside down it became a perfect frog for holding the thin forsythia branches ( hide water bowl inside).

Enjoy the glorious branches by cutting them as they bloom or  get longer enjoyment by cutting early and forcing the blooms inside.

  1. cute idea. Spring is way out of wack this year. The flowers that would normally be blooming now are long gone - the iris is out! The daylily is coming up! Yikes!
