Footed Dish with Grape Hyacinths

Despite their delicate appearance, grape hyacinths are tough enough to use in live arrangements. Enjoy their spring-fresh cheer for days, watering lightly every day to keep the roots moist, then plant them outdoors to bloom again the following year. A footed dish provides an ideal platform for grape hyacinths nestles into a stylized bird's nest.
