Creative with Flowers - # 41 - A Flower in a Bottle


This week in this short and sweet 'Creative with Flowers' - I'm featuring just one single pink Ranunculus in a bottle with lots of "white" props around it.


This is a little "statement" that I add to the post - briefly explaining my thinking behind the posts:

"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!"


Putting one single flower in its own vessel - you make it look special and almost precious.

I have combined a ravishingly beautiful Ranunculus with a very humble vintage glass bottle. The two, still closed, buds also adds charm and movement. 


The contrast of a simple bottle and a drop-dead gorgeous flower is almost irresistible. 


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I will be back on Friday with another 'A Bunch for the Weekend'. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you here then - a new post - new flowers - bright and early first thing in the morning.
