Creative with Flowers - # 29 - Pink Christmas


This week on 'Creative with Flowers' - I'm featuring pretty pink Hyacinths. It's such a great long lasting flower for this time of year whether it's as cut flowers or as planted bulbs. 


This series of blog posts - called 'Creative with Flowers' - are about using flowers in new and 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!



Here are some alternative colour combinations than the usual colours we associate with Christmas. 

Nothing wrong with red, green and white but some years I feel like trying something new and different.

So here is a pink, white, grey and green colour scheme. 


Four different containers - all within the colour scheme but of various shape, size and age. 


A little bowl of vintage Christmas tree baubles very simply displayed. I love the one with the smiling face!


The two grey and white fabrics reminds me of snowflakes and grey skies - a typical December day in Sweden. 


I like old vintage bottles with writing on them, fabrics or old sacks with printed logos or like here metal and porcelain plates with numbers.

I have left the little bulb bit at the bottom of the stems and most of the leaves - only removed any that was damaged. I used a large florist bucket with very wide opening so no issues with not being able to fit in all the stems including the bulb bit. 

Really the perfect quick and easy flower for this time of year when everybody is busy organising for the festive season.  


Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous floral Wednesday!

Thanks you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer'. I will be back later in the week with more floral delights. I'll see you then.

Bonjour chère amie,

J'aime la fraîcheur et les tonalités de ce bouquet... Les jacinthes sont un petit pas vers Demoiselle Printemps ! Cela ne peut que me plaire.
Vos photos sont merveilleuses et vos conseils fantastiques.

Que Noël et l'an nouveau vous apportent ce qu'ils ont de plus beau !

Gros bisous 🎄❄️🎄❄️
