Tiny Blooms - # 13 - Double Daffodil - Narcissus 'Double Ducat'




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!



This beautiful daffodil is called Narcissus 'Double Ducat' - it has massive double bright yellow flower heads and some of the petals has the smallest hint of green.

I used six stems and made a tight bouquet by holding the stems right under the flower head and creating a round domed shape with all the flowers facing outwards all the way around.

I tied some raffia around the stems and left the ends trailing down as a little textured feature.



As a colour contrast to the bright yellow flowers I choose a purple glass vase and left the stems on the daffodils long enough to just casually lean against the side of the vase.  I also added a piece of fabric with a purple zigzag pattern, two vintage purple buttons and a brightly coloured bead necklace.

A simple, quick and easy DIY spring flower arrangement.




Have a Lovely Floral Monday!

I'll see you later in the week with more flowers from 
'Of Spring and Summer'

What a beuatiful double daffodil!
You made a simple flower arrangement.
The flower has enough on its own.
And she shines in the purple vase.

With love, Gerry
