FLOWERS by ingrid and titti - Spring is in the Air!



Yes, spring is definitely in the air here in London! Titti and I thought it would be a suitable theme for this weeks FLOWERS.


To capture the feeling of spring with flowers is not difficult at this time of year - flowers are in abundance and the colours are fabulous.


For this spring bouquet I have used white and pink tulips, some ranunculus in a couple of different pink shades and for green foliage a small leafed eucalyptus. 


I also made a second mini arrangement in a very small watering can - four ranunculus with a few little sprigs of eucalyptus and some raffia to hold it all together - just leaning to one side. A charming way to display a tiny arrangement. 


The large container is a zinc florist bucket that I have had for many years and it's still in use almost every day. Talk about good value for money!


The big arrangement is made straight in the container and I have grouped a few of the same flower together to prevent the flowers looking like dots.  


The piece of floral fabric that I'm using as a tablecloth picks up the pink and green colours in the flowers. A quick and easy way to make a base for the arrangement and to blend and tie it all together.



I think spring has arrived in the south of Sweden too - were Titti lives - I can't wait to see what spring-like flowers she has to show us. Here is the link to her blog. 


Have a lovely floral day!

We'll be back later in the month with another 'FLOWERS' -also with a spring theme. Before that I'll see you later in the week.

Dear Ingrid, you've certainly given us a beautiful collection of arrangements for the weekend. The varied shades of pink and soft white have a graceful accenting from the grey of the containers and the grey-green of the delicate eucalyptus leaves. All together I see the beauty of fresh spring flowers!
