Creative with Flowers - # 22 - Pink Hydrangea and Eucalyptus


This week we are taking a look at some gorgeous deep pink Hydrangea and the foliage I'm using is the old dependable Eucalyptus.  


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 Hydrangea is still going strong at the flower stalls. As we move into autumn the colours gets stronger, deeper and darker.


I kept a lot of the amazing dark green foliage on the Hydrangea. The foliage can often be damaged, torn or bruised so I rarely leave a lot on - but this time it just looked so good I left as much as I could on the stems.
  

While clearing out some old boxes from my loft I found this 30 year old Tampella fabric - a Finnish company very popular in the 1960's. Who would have known that it would still look this good today...!! And almost matching the pink flowers.


The grey-green Eucalyptus foliage contrast to the dark Hydrangea leaves and it also matches the light green bottles and jars that I have used as vases.


I'm so excited finding this old fabric - I love the colours and it has such a contemporary look and feel to. 

It's just a perfect fit for the way I love to mix old with new - vintage with contemporary.


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 another 'A Bunch for the Weekend'. Hope to see you then.
