Tiny Blooms - # 42 - Think Pink This Spring!



This time on 'Tiny Blooms' - It's an all pink feature. Pink is a big trend this spring - not that I tend to follow trends all the time - but sometimes they can make you look at things with fresh eyes.  


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!"


Sticking to one colour can sometimes make life easy - nothing clashing, no harsh contrasts - and you can be pretty certain that it will all turn out harmonious and easy on the eye.

This time I have not included anything from my vintage prop collection. Instead it's all current contemporary stuff - such as the pink tote bag, the pink and white striped fabric, the pink and white baker's twine and not forgetting the great little pink vase with such an interesting textured surface. 

They all have a slightly different pink colour - but that's absolutely fine and makes it more interesting. 



Pink might not be for everyone. We think of plastic Barbie dolls and Legally Blond. 

Instead think pink garden roses, cherry blossoms, tulips or like here ranunculus.

I happen to love pink - so following this spring big trend of pink is quite easy for me........!



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

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