The theme on FLOWERS this time is 'White on White'.
I have used the beautifully scented Paperwhite together with a small leaved Eucalyptus.
In early December I bought two very large pots of Paperwhites from the flower stall at the farmers' market. But instead of bringing them inside I kept the pots on an outside window ledge. That way I could enjoy the flowers through my kitchen windows. I also knew they would last much longer being kept outside as I had a feeling I might want to use them later on for something else.
So this week when I saw that they were in full bloom I knew the time was right. I needed some white cut flowers for the current FLOWERS and thought it would be nice to use them as the theme was all about the colour white.
I didn't want any of the leaves so I happily cut all the flower stems and combined them in a medium sized vase with some small leaved Eucalyptus foliage that has this lovely mid-green colour - not too dark and not too light.
I have then layered the image with white on white - using a vintage ceramic urn from Sweden, some old French linen fabric, a painted wooden foot stool, a pile of old books, a small white statue, also from Sweden and as a contrast a little wire basket.
Titti Malmberg - my Swedish based collaborator who I work alongside on FLOWERS - has also created a blog post over on her blog HWIT BLOGG - so please follow the link and go over and see what she has done.
We also have a special board over on Pinterest with images from FLOWERS.
Have a Very Happy Floral Day!
