Day 136 - Today's Indoor Centerpiece Can Become Tomorrows Patio Planter

Chamaecyparis Sungold, hanging baskets of Chenille Acalypha hispida, purple Girard, fiery red Nandina 'Firepower', Primrose, and Ivy helped me create a colorful stage for the speakers at this event in Franklin, Tennessee.

Centerpieces for the tables were glazed bowls filled with Primrose, Bougainvillea "Raspberry Ice", and Ivy "Needlepoint"
While it's still too cold here for the Chenille and Bougainvillea to survive outdoors, put these planters in a sunny window for another 2 months then let them be your spring planters come April.

Absolutely stupendous. Were the silver pails used as containers for the arrangements on stage?
