A Bunch for the Weekend - # 106 - Hot Pink Anemones



This time on 'A Bunch for the Weekend' I have done a super easy arrangements with hot pink Anemones - even the container is simple and easy. 


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

"It's always a pleasure and lots of fun to buy a bunch of flowers for the weekend and in this series of blog posts, called 'A Bunch for the Weekend', I will show you how you can make quick and easy flower arrangements for your home. 

Buy the flowers where it's convenient and easy for you whether that is from a flower stall, farmers' market, the supermarket or a florist. 


Always try to buy seasonal flowers - they will last longer and they will be a lot cheaper.


Make sure you condition the flowers as soon as you get home. Remove any foliage that will end up below the waterline in the vase. Trim the ends of the stems at an angle and put in fresh water as soon as possible."



Two bunches of dark pink Anemones gives you a substantial amount of flowers that will have some impact on any table or sideboard.

These particular ones have quite long stems, and I wanted to leave them long, so they demanded a large container. 

I did a handtied bunch - without actually tying anything around the stems. I just wanted all the stems to be parallel when you looked at them through the glass jar.

Quick, easy and lots and lots of colour!    


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I will be back on Sunday morning with another 'Florets - a new floral quote by someone passionate about flowers. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you back here then.
