An interesting arrangement...


It must have been my lucky day at the markets on Saturday morning - I was given 3 bunches of flowers for free. Perhaps its because they see me wandering around there every week and wonder why on earth I dont just sleep in on a Saturday and feel sorry for me!

This week i took home some darling dahlias, hydrangeas, Julia roses and some David Austins (i'll show you those tomorrow). I quite like this arrangement below of the dahlias and hydrangeas -an interesting mix, one quite edgy and the other very rustic but i works so well and the colours are delightful together. Very unexpectedly beautiful, but like most things, it's always best this way... Kellie xx

  8. A flower arrangement is almost always successful when it has multiple textures like this! It creates a more interesting arrangement.
