FLOWERS by ingrid & titti - White Flowers for the New Year



Hi, Titti and I are back with our second - FLOWERS by ingrid and titti. This time we thought it would be nice to do a table arrangement for New Year's Eve. 


We both agreed that white flowers would be a nice idea after all the bright colours of Christmas. I found some white Hyacinths and some white tulips at my local flower stall. I then added a few long sprigs of dark green rosemary from my garden - a lovely contrast both in colour and texture.

I used two different sizes of vintage apothecary jars and a vintage fish paste jar. The common denominator is that they are all clear glass - that way you can see the lovely flower stems and they will also reflect the candle light. 



The three vases sit on a vintage table mirror - a clever way of making it look like there are twice as many flowers - as well as obviously reflect even more of the candle light. 


Titti and I also wanted to add a second little floral arrangement for the table. I did a mini bouquet to add to the napkin ring. 

I used only foliage plants for the napkin - Buxus or boxwood that has little dark green leaves, as a contrast I used the light green variegated Pittosporum tenuifolia and for a little bit of scent some rosemary - these are all from my garden. I also added some long leaved also dark green Danae racemosa from the flower stall.

I made some napkin rings using a striped ribbon and simply tucked the little bouquet under the ribbon. 

I have also added a little bit of lace tape around the votive candle holders - the candle light looks very pretty through the white lace.      




Here is a link to the first FLOWERS by ingrid and titti - that we did before Christmas.

Here is a link to Titti's blog - HWIT BLOGG - so you can have a look at what floral creations she has come up with.


Have A Wonderful Floral Day!

See you soon!

xoxo Ingrid

Good morning Ingrid!

Fresh, elegant & stylish!! Love your idea to place the vases onto a mirror -I often do this with candles and it has never occurred to me to do it with pretty vases! I'd very happily have these on my New Years Eve table...

Have a very HAPPY New Year!!
