Poppy & Posie's Watering Can Ballet is not only inspired by the Blossom Sisters' tradition of dancing ballet each morning while watering their flowers, but also by the classic standard of always having watering cans in ballet rehearsal rooms

Watering cans in ballet studios were used to sprinkle water on the floor in an effort to prevent dust from forming under the dancers' feet. Also, as seen in Edgar Degas' painting below, the shape of the watering can charmingly resembles a position a ballerina might have at the barre!
