Winter Flowers

Posted on: December 19th, 2014 by melanie No Comments

If you look out your window its hard to see any flowers in bloom, but there are so many wonderful textures to be found right in you own garden, or maybe your neighbors. In this wintery arrangement we used a birch box and filled it with greenery from our garden; fir, cedar, boxwood, ivy and hellebore foliage. There was so much more to find like holy, lichen branches, redwood, pieris, two kinds of huckleberry and many other wonderful greens and textures. Especially in winter its easy to use fewer flowers and give each bloom some space to contrast with all the interesting greens and textures available in winter. Monochromatic is always a great choice for a flower arrangement making a restful and interesting bouquet. Since we used all white flowers we were able to use many different floral varieties without the arrangement becoming  fussy. Using just a few of each bloom we chose were mini green hydrangeas, hellebore, spray roses, freesia, mini carnation, amaryllis, football mums and roses.

Winter Flowers

During the winter so many of our favorite flowers are unavailable or so expensive we have to use the with care. So we look around at what nature has to offer during the season and so many things come to mind. Boxwood, cedar, fir, holly, mossy branches create a base of much loved texture for our precious blooms.

For this  floral display we startled with a sweet mercury glass votive holder and filled it with privet berries, bay leaves, scented geranium, seeded eucalyptus and pieris japonica. That is five different textures in one small vase. Of course we needed flowers to finish it off with a few stems of the very special ranunculus and a smattering of spray roses.

A birch bark tube is filled to overflowing with wintery textures, pine, fir, cones, privet berries, boxwood and pieris buds are a good start for the base of the unusual arrangement. To add some color we used mini green hydrangeas, white ranunculus, stargazer lilies, kale, roses, and peonies. We used candles hoping the recipient would light them for additional Christmas sparkle.
