Happy New Year my friends! I have missed you. I was on the road with my family to Texas and back (yes, 4300 miles / 6900 km of driving), so 12 days away from work and the blog seemed a world away. But, it sure was a lot of fun. I hope that you all had a fabulous holiday season as well. I am excited for all the new possibilities that this year has already presented. I also have some new ideas for projects which I will be blogging about and sharing with you over the next few weeks and months.
As I was coming up with the theme for the floral styling, I simply imagined what I would want my winter dinner table to look like. I wanted to stay away from the typical winter and holiday red and green, but still wanted some color, so I chose pink - which always has availability in so many shades. (It didn't hurt that I found the most amazing anemones and ranunculus in pink!)
I used ornamental kale, mistletoe, ranunculus, anemone and scabiosa in one arrangement and for the smaller clusters I used only one or two kinds of flowers. I bought some inexpensive regular glass textured vases and painted them gold and I must say I love how they turned out.
Can you believe this ranunculus? Such a beauty!
This arrangement of narcissus and mint simply smelled exquisite!
