Creative with Flowers - #18 - Pink and Green Hydrangea


This week on 'Creative with Flowers' we are taking a look at some deep pink and green hydrangea that also has petals with curled edges - so a little bit different. 


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!


I rather like the two toned flower heads and the slightly curled edges of the petals. 

Combining them with a neutral background and a few also neutral bits and pieces - was a must. The flowers themselves are quite strong in colour and I wanted them to stand out.


I have faintly picked up the pink in the flowers by using a cushion and a vintage bowl with some pink in them in the background.
The vintage apothecary jars are filled with mother-of-pearl buttons from my grandmother and the ball of cut and torn rags are also from my grandmother's house. They did that before weaving it into rag rugs. I can't believe this ball of rags is still around!!  


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer - I will be back on Friday with some more floral delights. Hope to see you then.

Bonjour chère amie,

Il est vrai que ce sont des idées incroyables que d'utiliser et faire revivre des objets pour créer un décor et harmoniser nos bouquets.
Très joli billet et superbes photos.

Gros bisous 🌼

Ingrid, I'm also a fan of two-toned, or even three-toned flowers.

These hydrangeas are very beautiful. As a bit of a coincidence, my just posted blog contains as an early photo, a bunch of pastel toned hydrangeas to be found at the Union Square Farmer Market. Do have a look. xo

Nice hydrangeas flowers design, but as we know Hydrangeas do well when fertilizers are effectively used in spring or just after winter. I have also a good flower collection for Muktsar area in Punjab, have a look on it.
