Winter Flowers

Posted on: December 9th, 2014 by melanie No Comments

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.

Elegant Marries Dashing

Posted on: October 31st, 2013 by melanie No Comments

I was having trouble coming up with one word to describe Elizabeth, beautiful, classic, gracious but I think elegant encompasses all of those qualities. Then there is the groom well what can I say, dashing sums it up. Together they seem so right. elegant bride and a dashing groom

MOTHERS DAY

Posted on: May 3rd, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Today and most days I think about my mom. She is not with us anymore and I miss her. But her spirit will never die she had  too much personality. She loved people and had embarrassing ways of saying things we called myraisms. Generous, glamorous, red head then blond, she kept in touch with old friends and family. I love to garden because of her and because I love to garden I love flowers. I made some flower arrangements with my mom in mind, here are a few.

Spring Planters

Posted on: April 1st, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Right now any excuse to go to the nursery is fine with me. There are so many crazy flowers blooming right now it is hard to choose. We like to gather a few combinations of unusual bulbs and some different primroses and plant them in tins or boxes or maybe ceramic. They are perfectly fine outside but do well inside too.

Super sweet and super inexpensive, a box of primroses and a bit of pussy willow is just right.

Peach and grey wedding flowers

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Lots of brides this year want peach wedding flowers. Their bridesmaids are wearing grey and peach is a great color for a grey dress. Grey is a great neutral color that goes well with most all flowers. I painted my house grey for just that reason. For this wedding at the Manor House on Bainbridge Island we used peachy pink flowers with some creams and pale yellow.

SPRING FLOWERS

Posted on: January 5th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

It’s not really spring, yet. Day after day the sky is grey so I thought we might need a little color. One of the first things to bloom in the winter are primroses. The yellow smell the best and are so bright they just called to me. We put a few plants in a box and tied it with a french linen ribbon. They are available for sale on the ledge just outside at Vintage Home and Garden here on Bainbridge Island.
