Tiny Blooms - # 26 - Muscari



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. 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!



Muscari or as they are also called Grape hyacinths is a 'tiny bloom' usually with stems about 20 cm tall. They come in a variety of blue colours as well as white.

You can sometimes find them as cut flowers but more often you would pick them yourself in a garden. When you do just pick a small posy and leave the rest to be enjoyed where they are growing.

So what do you do with a tiny posy - well you can put all the flowers in a tiny vase or you can use small bottles with just one stem in each.

Or you can do what I have done here - make a hand-tied bouquet - tie some blue raffia around the stems - make a big bow and put the flowers in a small vase just leaning to one side - put the vase on a tile or saucer in a similar colour and you have a quick, easy and beautiful 'Tiny Blooms' flower arrangement.   


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

I'll see you on Wednesday with Part 2 of 'Flowers and Ribbons' where I'm using flowers, ribbons and jam jars.
