Creative with Flowers - # 30 - Pale Blue Hyacinths and Pittosporum



This week on 'Creative with Flowers' - I'm featuring some gorgeous pale blue Hyacinths mixed with variegated Pittosporum foliage. 


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!


Usually most hyacinths that you buy in garden centres and street market have quite strong bright colours.

The flowers are from my usual street flower stall and the foliage is from my own garden.  

I love how these pale blue flowers both contrasts and harmonise with the green variegated Pittosporum foliage.


Adding a few paper honeycomb pompoms adds both colour and fun to any celebration. 


Vintage jugs in different colours and sizes are perfect for informal flower arrangements. I have found many of my jugs in charity stores or antique markets for very little money and I still pick them up if I come across one in an unusual colour - just to add to my collection.

Isn't this combination of blue and green colours just stunning?



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.

Ingrid, the delicacy of the color of those hyacinths is so, so beautiful. I am trying to remember if I've ever seen a similar shade over here.

Thank you for sharing these beauties with us! xo
