A mass bouquet of a single type of flower always attracts my attention. It makes such an impressive presentation, yet simple. All blooms and no greenery is a perfect way to add a huge punch of colour or to add some drama in a very easy way. Simple and gorgeous.
For this Wednesday’s flowers I used Creme de la Creme roses in a large bouquet paired up with two smaller bouquets of fiery orange, parrot tulips. The tulips were purchased from the local grocery store for $7.99 for a bunch of 10 stems, the roses where a gift from a dear friend.
With the start of a new year, I wanted the presentation of the three bouquets to be classic with a bit of drama, which told me I had to incorporate black into the project. I arranged the roses in a black, flared, glass vase. The tulips were placed in mini vases with a damask pattern.
I think this is a perfect pairing to start the new year!
Happy 2011 to you all! Wishing you a year full of joy, happiness and success and may there be new adventures around every turn and smiles to last a lifetime.
