Creative with Flowers - # 20 - Bright Red Dahlias for the Hall


I love having a bunch of fresh flowers in my hallway. It makes me happy to see some colourful blooms when I arrive home and the bigger the better!


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 always my arrangements will be quick and easy - and there will always be lots and lots of colour!


The hallway can easily become cluttered with coats, shoes, bags, keys and all kind of other things dumped on the floor as soon as you come inside the door. 

If you are lucky enough to have a hall with room for a table - a container with an arrangement of daffodils and tulips at springtime. Big bunches of pretty summer flowers during the summer months.

Sunflowers, Chrysanthemums, or like here, Dahlias are perfect in the hall during the late summer and autumn. Why not try some branches with crabapples or other colourful berries during the winter.  


A folded piece of fabric that picks up the colour in the flowers is a quick and easy way to create a temporary tablecloth. The one I've used, even has a pattern with trees in autumn colours.

Work with what's available each season and your hallway will be transformed and a colourful and beautiful arrangement will greet you when you arrive home.  


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.
