Tiny Blooms - # 21 - Holly and Rose Hips



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 can also be that the arrangement is minimal both in presentation and that it's simple, quick and easy to do. Apart from that there are no other strict rules - I'm allowing myself a lot of creative freedom!

I have used some glossy very dark green holly foliage and to that added branches of small red rose hips. They both come as quite tall branches and I have simply cut them down to about 10-20 cm short stems.

Cut the stems at different lengths to give the little arrangement some movement and interest.  

The vase I'm using is my old stand by - the mini version of Alvar Aalto's Savoy vase in white. It was designed in 1937 and is still being made and sold by Iittala in Finland. But any jar or bottle would be perfect.

Instead of just one make a whole lot of them and arrange them down the middle of the Christmas table.

This quick and easy arrangement would not take long to do - so another great one for the holiday!



Have a Lovely Floral Monday!

I'll be back later in the week with more floral delights from 
Of Spring and Summer.
