I have a large collection of all kinds of vases and containers - but I don't feel guilty about it. I use them in my daily work - while styling and photographing flowers.
Vases, vessels or containers - call them what you like - can be so much fun when you arrange flowers. Here is a small part of my collection - the pink and red one.
Some are inherited, others are bought at antique fairs, some are from car boot sales and flea markets and a lot are from charity stores. I have never spent a lot of money as you don't have to because vases are often cheep.
I have used five different tulips in a range of different pinks - it's a mix of parrot, fringed and double tulips - all gorgeous.
What is interesting about tulips is that they continue to grow in the vase, the petals also open up and they often change colour - they are almost the most beautiful just before the petals drop.
The last image is similar to the first one. It's the same flowers in the same vases - just a few days later. You can clearly see the change in the tulips. I think even more beautiful!
Have a Creative Floral Day!
See you on Friday with another FLOWERS by ingrid and titti and this time it's about something a little bit different!
