DIY Flower Tips and Inspiration - # 14 - Orange Tulips and Ranunculus




This week 'DIY Flower Tips and Inspiration' - is mostly just orange. Tulips are appearing more and more on the flower stalls and Ranunculus have just popped up their pretty heads.


I found some gorgeous orange Tulips - the petals have streaks of darker colours that gives a variegated marbled effect - and makes them look just super pretty!


Some of the bright orange Ranunculus are in tight buds others have opened up showing their layers and layers of thin petals.

The vase is a vintage jar from Sweden and the sugar bowl is from the 1930's Art Deco period and from my grandmother back in Sweden. The chevron black and white fabric becomes an interesting contrast in colour and form.

The two flowers contrast each other in texture but match almost perfectly in colour. For somebody like me who loves colour - this combination just makes me swoon!! 


Enjoy your flower arranging!

Titti and I will be back on Friday with another FLOWERS with a new and different theme.

Combining these beautiful orangey tuplips and ranunculus yields a brilliant result, Ingrid. Fun to see these colors against the black and white base and not even having one thought about Halloween. I saw your imagination giving us inspiration.

I love the vintage soft white vase and that gem of an art deco orange and black container.

You've given us lots of places for our eyes to hop around, and have lots of fun.
