Tiny Blooms - # 38 - Tulips in Mini Vases


I'm making a few changes to my my blog and one small change is to bring back 'Tiny Blooms'. It was right from the beginning a very popular series of blog posts, but for many reasons I decided to put it on the shelf for a while. But here we are - I'm relaunching it and I'm hoping it will be as popular as it was before.

I hope you'll enjoy it!

This series of blog posts - called 'Tiny Blooms' - are about small flower arrangements. Small - might be the size of the flower or the amount of stems I'm using; or it could be the size of the container. 

It can also be that the arrangement is minimal both in presentation and that it's simple, quick and easy to do. Apart from that there are no other strict rules - I'm allowing myself a lot of creative freedom!

I had so much fun creating this series of flower arrangements for a feature in Gatherings Magazine. It was the spring issue 2013 and I was the Contributing Floral Styling Editor.

The lovely Editor in Chief was Heather Spriggs and Gatherings Magazine was published both as an E-magazine and in print, but it's now sadly no longer being published. 

The feature was called Bulbs in Bloom and run over four pages. Half was about tulips and the other half was about daffodils.

Here is some of the text I wrote:

"Over time, philosophers and writers have often used the metaphor of spring to explain the power of remaining positive and optimistic. No other season has so much anticipation and hope for a fresh start and renewal - the world is full of potential." 

Some of you might have seen the magazine - but these images has never been published on my blog before.
