Autumn Color Series: Blue

I'm generally not a fan of blue flowers or blue-themed floral arrangements, but in thinking about this Color Series and looking around at the SF Flower Mart I realized that there are a lot of different shades and textures when it comes to blue. So, I was pushed to challenge myself and put together something in blue that I didn't find "tacky", and this is the result. Feel free to let me know what you think! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Flowers: delphinium, belladonna, privet berries, hydrangea, thistle, viburnum, tweedia Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Begin with the privet on one side. These berries are just lovely this time of year, as their color changes into lovely shades of blue and pink. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Place the hydrangea opposite the privet. The puffy look creates a great contrast to the other side of the vase. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Place the tweedia in between. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Arrange the thistle in the middle and behind the privet. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Add the delphinium. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

And finally, add the viburnum. It's still not a personal color fave, but if I had to have a blue arrangement, I think I could live with this one for a little bit! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
