Tiny Blooms - # 22 - Pink and White Lisianthus



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!

Lisianthus is an old standby - almost always available at the florist or the supermarket. Make sure most of the flowers have started to open - many of the closed buds might never open once cut. Any small bent stems with buds will not also straighten.

The flowers come with quite tall stems and they look wonderful used in taller vases. You can also cut the stems short like I have done here. 

The little vases I have used are the Lyngby Vase made by the Danish company Lyngby Porcelain. The design was released in 1936 and has become an iconic vase. It comes in several different sizes and in three colours - white, black and light grey.

The flowers are from my local supermarket and I have cut the stems short so that the flowers rest just above the edge of the vase. I have put the white flowers in the black vase and the pink flowers in the white vase - both contrasting nicely in colour and texture. 

Two little flower arrangements that are very simple, quick and easy to do. Enjoy your flower arranging! 
     

Have a Lovely Floral Monday!

So sweet!
The florist in the village makes up tiny arrangements in wine glasses and other pretty little containers. They are perfect to take to a hospital or if one is invited out for tea or coffee.
