Wednesday’s Flowers – Orange and Pink

October 19, 2011

Last week the Living Fresh Flower School had a little photo shoot with the Record, a local paper in Kitchener-Waterloo, for their New Ventures column that we will be highlighted in, so of course I ordered up a bunch of flowers and made a pretty bouquet.  Here is what I ordered:

  • Pink Sedum
  • Orange Pincushion Leucospernum
  • Pink Spray Roses
  • Orange Waxflower  – Chamelaucium
  • Myrtle foliage

Since these flowers did not have a purpose other than looking pretty for the photo shoot I decided to share the flowers so they did not go to waste.

The pretty bouquet from the photo shoot ended up as a prize in our new Friday’s Flower Giveaway.

I created a pretty arrangement with some of the flowers to share with my friend’s at Queen Street Yoga in Kitchener.

Then I used the leftover flowers in a new milk glass vase with a flower frog on top for today’s flower post.  I also filled a small milk glass vase with orange Waxflowers and Myrtle.  I displayed the two arrangements with a very small hobnail vase on our dining room table.

I love that I found a way to share these flowers with others and myself.  To have kept them all would have been a waste.  Instead I was able to have fun creating arrangements and made a few people smile!  Being able to do this really makes me love my job!

I have to give a shout out to my Mom; she found the milk glass vase with the flower frog at a market and purchased it for me, thanks Mom!
