This time 'Do-It-Yourself Flower Tips and Inspiration' is all about Chrysanthemums and Snowberries.
Here are a few facts and information about the flowers:
- The Chrysanthemum is originally from the Arctic, parts of Russia, China and Japan.
- The name Chrysanthemum comes from the Greek chrysos that means gold and anthemon that means flower.
- Chrysanthemums come in many different forms and shapes; pompon, quill, spider and spoon are just a few of the interesting forms of the flower.
- Snowberries comes originally from North and Central America but now grows wild in many places.
- Snowberries are a member of the honeysuckle family.
- Snowberries are an important food source in the winter for many birds.
Brilliantly white fluffy Chrysanthemums and round white Snowberries are very effective and mixes well together at this time of year.
I wanted to take a break from all the strong autumn colours I have featured lately. I love strong colours but I also love white. So here is a quick and easy all white arrangement.
I have used a large white vintage apothecary container for the big arrangement and a small white contemporary vase for my secondary complementary arrangement. Adding a few white honeycomb pompoms along the way.
Here I'm showing the arrangement with an all white background - white marble table, white French linen sheet and white painted wood panelling. The arrangement works just as well as a contrast to something much more colourful.
Why not try it in a few different locations around your home - maybe you'll find some interesting colour combinations!
Enjoy your flower arranging!
Next Friday it's time for another FLOWERS from Titti and I. We will inspire on how to give your guests a warm and flowery welcome!
