Tiny Blooms - # 12 - Pink Roses and Eucalyptus


Pink Roses and Eucalyptus

This series of blog posts - called 'Tiny Blooms - are about small flower arrangements. Small - might be the size of the container or it could be the size of the flowers or the amount of stems in each container. It will also be that the arrangement is minimal both in presentation and that it's quick and easy to do. Apart from that there are no other strict rules - I'm allowing myself a lot of creative freedom!

Pink Roses and Eucalyptus

This week on 'Tiny Blooms' I'm featuring some pink roses and Eucalyptus foliage.

I have used a low wide container that is really the bowl of a black stone pestle and mortar. I very much liked the dark against the pink and the grey green foliage

I cut down the Eucalyptus into short little sprigs and I filled the bowl around the edge and in the middle creating a grid-like pattern to support the roses.

The stems on this particular Eucalyptus has reddish pink stems and even the veins on the leaves are pink nicely picking up the pink in the roses.

I have added a few little extras - a Lotta Jansdotter fabric in grey and white, a roll of black garden twine, an old little pink spool with black thread and two vintage black wooden buttons.

Three pink roses from the supermarket, some grey foliage and a bowl from the kitchen is all you need to make a floral arrangement for your Monday morning!

'Of Spring and Summer'

I have a pestel and mortar, which is hardl every used, maybe will do something similar to your pretty display - thanks for the idea. Roses/eucalyptus work well together.
