A Bunch for the Weekend - # 73 - Mixing Flowers

Last week and earlier this week I created two different arrangements and posted them on the blog.

Last weeks was one for FLOWERS called Flowers to Give Away and the one earlier this week was part of the series Creative with Flowers

Well, both arrangements were still going strong and I wanted to use the flowers again and make new and different arrangements.

I made two smaller flower arrangements using flowers from both of the old arrangements. In both cases I used vintage glass jars as vases as I wanted to keep the vase as neutral as possible - not to take anything away from the flowers. 

The first new arrangement consists of the multicoloured carnations and the white phlox. I did a hand-tied bunch and tied it with natural coloured raffia.

In the second arrangement I used the chrysanthemums and added the two different pink tulips to it. I tied some dark purple raffia, this time around the neck of the container. Just as a little added detail.  

It's quite fun to be able to make more than one arrangement using the same flowers. A little bit of experimenting and working out if the flowers work just as well the second time around.

I love trying out different colour combinations and using different vases and containers. To be able to see what works and what doesn't is always fun and interesting.

Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral weekend!

I'll see you on Sunday with another 'Florets - Floral Quote' by someone passionate about flowers - as well as some more floral delights from Of Spring and Summer.

Dear Ingrid, I appreciate your showing us how to prolong the lives of these pretty blooms, by creating fresh arrangements.

Excellent advice from you, as always!

Happy weekend to you. xo

So smart to reuse the flowers as well....Carnations appear to be on their way back, right? Not only funeral flowers any more!
