This series of blog posts - called 'Creative with Flowers' - are about using flowers in creative ways. It could be about how the flowers are combined - maybe in a little bit of an unusual way. It might be the choice of vase - maybe not a vase at all but a container that could be anything from jugs, bottles, jars, tins or teapots - vintage or new it doesn't matter.
As usual my arrangements will be quick and easy - and there will always be a riot of colour!
This week on 'Creative with Flowers' I'm a very lucky girl. The lovely Cel Robertson who runs the organic flower farm in Norfolk - Forever Green Flower Farm, had the most amazing pink tulips.
The tulip is called Tulipa 'Aveyron' and they are an early double peony flowering tulip. The resemblance to peony is striking. It's a deep rose pink colour with white and green markings on some of the outer petals.
The ranunculus are in three different shades from pale pink to really dark almost wine coloured.
I have combined over-sized pink tulips with gorgeous pink ranunculus - but instead of mixing them in the same vase - i chose to give them each their own container.
I accidentally broke one of the tulip stems so I gave it's own little glass jar.
I got these cute little acrylic spoons a few years ago - they are from the French company Sabre Paris.
All the little arrangements sits on a Swedish pink and white rag weaving and in the background are four newly made cushions made from off-cuts vintage fabrics and patchwork quilts.
Two pink but very distinctly different flowers - that here shows off their beauty in separate vases but positioned next to each other.
Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Wednesday!
I'll be be back on Friday with another 'A Bunch for the Weekend'.
