Forget the Flowers: A Foliage and Seed Head Display
It's not often that you see vase arrangements constructed almost entirely from foliage, but with the right shapes and textures they look fabulous. This lush display looks stunning in an airy, white sunroom or a hall, on a tall white table.

Finish the Arrangement
Arrange the lily and bear grass bundles at angles around the sides of the arrangement so they fall at a natural angle. Add bunches of spear grass through the center to create extra height.
Add the lady's mantle next, using them to fill any gaps and seamlessly link the various colors and textures together.
Place the variegated hosta leaves at either side of the arrangement as a final touch; move the foliage heads slightly to make space for them. Top the water up to the rim of the vase.
This arrangement should last for ten days.
