Creative with Flowers - # 13 - Pink and White Flowers



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 lots and lots of colour!



Seven different flowers in seven different clear glass containers. The pink flowers are peonies, sweet peas, spray roses, Gladiolus italicus and Astrantia. The white flowers are stock and Gypsophila.


All the containers are vintage laboratory glass containers in different shapes and sizes.  


I have grouped them together on a tabletop and added a few black props - a Jane Packer apron, two small bowls and two little boxes with postcards from the Design Museum in London. 


Flower arranging does not have to be done in one vase or you don't even have to mix any flowers. Choose a few different flowers within the same colour range, pick out containers that are similar in some way and put one type of flower in each container. 

Group them together on a table or sideboard and you end up with an interesting mix of colours, shapes, heights and textures, it will give visual variation and at the same time have a great impact.  


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I'm now taking a break from blogging to enjoy some time with family and friends. I will see you again in August.

Have a wonderful summer - enjoy the warmer weather and go out and smell the flowers!

Ingrid, these different flowers do make lovely neighbors. I like being able to peek through the glass and see how you've given the stems a little twist.

Happy Summer Days! xo
