I love the elegance and simplicity of orchids. The white Vanda Orchid Plants available from Prestige Botanicals make for a lovely statement and the design possibilities are endless. In this video I’ll share what I call my ‘shabby chic’ display which is basically taking a French washed trough, filling with foam and simply positioning the orchid plants to appear as if they are growing naturally. Once finished it’s the kind of display that works well in any room, be it your counter top in the kitchen, the bathroom, bedroom, coffee table or an entrance table. Now that’s what I call clever designing and it is so super easy.

You will need:
- 3 white vanda orchid plants:
- Paint finished trough – I used @AnneSloanHome chalk paint – ‘old white’. Once finished, a couple of coats of wax to protect the finish.
- Grey foam to fill cavity of trough.
