Using wild plants and flowers to decorate

Sometimes a we look around and find that there is a corner in our home that is missing something. Maybe it is a photo frame, or a work of art, but have you ever wonder how a little bit of green will look? If not, now is the time to close your eyes and visualize how great and special that corner will be by just adding a group of plants. Now, don’t think for a moment that I’m talking about fake ones, or big boring trees. I’m thinking of a natural or wild approach that can be change and diversify when one gets tired of it.
What I am proposing here is a gather of multiple rustic and ordinary everyday plants to be placed on a simple vase. The beauty of this assembly lies on its natural uncommon grace. As you’ll see on the photo I’ve shared above, it took less to nothing to make this arrangement. I have to confess that most of the plants were either lying on the street or fallen leaves from my mini-garden. From my bouquet you’ll notice there are some palm tree fruit stalk pruning, two leaves that had fallen from one of my ferns, a leave (left by a gardener after cleaning a nearby house) from a “Swiss cheese” plant (also known as the “Mexican breadfruit” plant) and a small bunch of some sort of white wild flower.
All you’ll need is your imagination to make this. I can assure you it’ll be an attention grabber because of its natural and almost country style. Here are more examples on how to make a similar gathering using only wild plants.

I’ve gathered here some dried Magnolia’s cuttings and placed them in a wooden bowl to go with the color scheme. Also, in the back, I used a vintage style vase to place some more green palm tree fruit stalk pruning and the “Swiss cheese” leave. This are all decorating my desk side by side to my terrariums.
