I haven't been buying flowers lately but I had coffee with Kristin on Saturday and she sweetly brought me some of the extras from Angel's daughter's party. (Kris is my dear friend from high school who did our wedding flowers so she knows how much I love them and Angel was our wedding planner and her taste is exquisite - thanks, ladies!)
I had the best time arranging them into a trio of vases. There's something really relaxing about putting flowers together for yourself. I zone out a little and just enjoy it. Makes me want to get back into my weekly flower tradition but it'll probably have to wait until spring is more firmly established.
Those little guys in the bottom are flower frogs and I don't know how anyone arranges flowers without them. You can usually buy them at the Japanese market or you can order them online. I have a bunch of different sizes and shapes.
Oh my goodness, those are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Wow these are stunning. There is NOTHING better in the world than the simple and profound beauty of fresh flowers. I remember my grandmother use to literally stop and smell the roses, and I always thought that was so funny, but now I get it. It's a beautifully simple pleasure.ReplyDelete
Oh these are absolutely beautiful!ReplyDelete
Just beautiful! What kind of flower is the one pink one with the petals that seem to be going in an opposite direction?ReplyDelete
Do you mean the pink roses? Those are Juliet roses. Gorgeous, right? I only know that because Kris told me and she's the expert.Delete
Yes - the pink roses. Thanks...I will have to remember their name. Beautiful!Delete
These are so beautiful, fresh flowers make everything better! I especially love the large peachy ones.ReplyDelete
Have a super weekend
that tight-centered pink bloom in the second shot is like looking into mother nature's jet engine. welcome to spring, and thank you for flying.ReplyDelete
Juliet roses! I don't think I'd ever seen them before but of course having a florist friend helps with the flower identifications.Delete
Thanks for identifying them! I was wondering what they were - so beautiful!Delete
i still always think of you when i buy flowers! what beautiful arrangements to get back in the swing.ReplyDelete
Your arrangements are beautiful! I always have a hard time arranging flowers (I think not buying enough is usually my problem... and I lack pretty vases). Your little trio is just so pretty! I've never heard of flower frogs before and now I'm incredibly curious to try them.ReplyDelete
The flower arrangements are beautiful, I love the colour palette of the flowers, the pastel colours are so pretty.ReplyDelete
Those vases are amazing, so simplistic, yet so elegant.
Your blog is my go-to for home and interior inspiration, I am definitely going to invest in some flower frogs as when I arrange flowers they have a mind of their own. I need to keep them in position!
Have a wonderful Sunday,
I've just nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award... see my blog post for details :)ReplyDelete

These flowers are all that I have to remind me of Spring coming from my rainy town in England!I love the pale pinks, such a seasonal colour. But that peachy orange, ah it's colossal! This post inspired me to write a Spring-themed post on my own blog!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Those roses are what roses should be.ReplyDelete
