I hope you you had a lovely Valentine’s Day. We went to a friends house for cozy, elegant dinner. I offered to bring flowers for the table and and used a technique I learned from my favorite French florist Herve Frezal.
This is a great way to create a bouquet that is more of a pure flower look. I think I may have been influenced a bit by the Pantone color of the year Ultraviolet in my flower choice…. when I saw these voluptuous roses, pink tulips and the deep shaded wax flowers, I knew they would be perfect.
From my garden I plucked some hellebores
Daphne and ferns.
To make the bouquets I just gathered the stems in my hand, mixing in the different shades and textures.
I had lined these square vases with a curve of Boston Fern to help conceal the flower stems.
Then I just trimmed the ends of the flowers and placed the bouquet inside the fern loop.
I added a couple of sprigs of the Daphne to each one for that fabulous exotic fragrance. Here is what they looked like from above, complex, colorful beauty.
We placed the bouquets down the center of the table set at an angle, so it was important they looked lovely from every angle.
Which angle do you prefer?
Have a great weekend dear readers!
