I absolutely love straw flowers. They are so cute and fun to arrange. I love the subtle differences in their colours and shapes and how different they look when picked at different stages of their growth. We’ve been growing many over the past summer and, when looking for something to arrange them in, I discovered this glass terrarium that I knew would be absolutely perfect! I love seeing this sitting on the table. It’s the cutest thing and so simple to make too. I love the Autumn feel to it and so happy to know it will last looking this good throughout the season.
I was feeling a little inspired during the week and created this cute arrangement of petunias for the kitchen window sill. I had the idea of using this small glass trinket dish as a vase to lay the flowers in horizontally so that the light would catch it from behind. It looked so pretty! I loved it so much that I felt the need to share it here! I love how the flowers glow, almost as if they are made of stained glass. I’m feeling really excited to try more arrangements like this now. A tip if you try this though – the water dries up really fast so it needs to be topped up often!
I’ve had my eye on these garlic chive flowers for the past few weeks and now they are just beginning to open! I love the cute star-light quality of these flowers and feel they add such a nice detail to arrangements. I’ve really enjoyed having these flowers on my table, the colours and shapes feel so cheery together. The pink of this geranium is absolutely stunning too!
We have agapanthus growing like weeds at our holiday house right now. Usually I arrange them as whole flowers but today I wanted to try something a bit different. So here are the three really simple, little arrangements I came up with. (more…)
Hi everyone! I’m back again after my Christmas break – It ended up being a bit of a longer break than I expected but it has been nice and restful and I now feel inspired and ready to get back blogging. I thought I’d share a bit of a colourful summery post today as autumn is beginning to close in on us now – these are some mini floral arrangements I’ve done over the past few weeks using flowers from my garden. I don’t usually have a very large range of flowers to choose from where I live but I love being creative with them none the less and coming up with a different arrangement every week or so. I think smaller arrangements are so adorable too and its’ so fun to scatter them in different locations around the house. As you will see, I love including all sorts of flowers and leaves, such as those found in the veggie patch, herb garden or also amongst all the weeds!
Snapdragons, Pink Cornflower, Alyssum and Fern
Floating Borage Flowers
Rose, Oregano and Pineapple Sage Leaves
Jasmine, Petunia, Geraniums (Pink, Coral and Red), Nasturtium, and unknown orange flower buds. A Floating white rose in the background.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season – wow that feels like so long ago now and strange to say that! Do you like making mini flower arrangements like these too? If you do I’d love to hear about them!
