Bring the Rainforest Garden indoors with spa style by simply cutting your favorite tropical flowers and floating them in an appropriate bowl of your choice. Visitors can appreciate flowers close up in a water garden of lilliputian proportions and you don't even have to tell them it took less than a minute to assemble. You may include tealight candles as well as long as the flowers do not come into contact with the flame, for obvious reasons.
In the first picture I have two types of passionflower perfuming the room with their mouthwatering fragrances; "Incensa" on the left has the very sweet aroma of incense, while "Imperatrice Eugenie" smells like lemon Pledge, which to me is the smell of a clean house. Conveniently enough, passionflowers are prolific bloomers and will keep you supplied with flowers til frost. If pollinated they may even bear fruit!
Make sure you choose flowers that have a cupped shape so they stay afloat, such as these Phillippine ground orchids and if you're really creative, try surrounding the larger flowers with a backdrop of smaller ones such as firespike, lily of the nile, or orange blossoms to really set off your masterpiece! If you don't have exotic plants to showcase, use acorn caps or leaves. Anything goes!
Be sure to tell me centerpieces you've done and include a picture link too!
