Tiny Blooms - # 40 - Pink Limonium in Mini Bud Vase



This week on 'Tiny Blooms' I'm featuring pink Limonium in a pink mini bud vase.




Here is a little "statement" that I add - to briefly explaining my thinking behind these particular posts:

"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!"


While making larger arrangements you often make little off cuts that are perfectly fine but they are too short or in the wrong place. 

I always keep these little stems and make up small side arrangements. I often use something called bud vases. They can be tall and slender or you can also find short ones. They almost always have a narrow neck to hold just one flower stem. 

I'm using a short and dainty one here and I have cut the stems very short and then filled the vase with as many stems as I could fit in.

The colourful abalone shell is an interesting contrast to the arrangement and so is the wire basket filled with twine and balls of torn rags. 



Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Monday!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday - when I'll be back with more floral delights.
