Humans with Bouquets: Victoria & Yulia

It's always a delight when my friends Victoria and Yulia come over. Although each post in this series to date has featured only one human at a time, I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to do two humans and two bouquets. As we all know, there is something fascinating about twins. These girls are identical twins, but I wanted to create two very different bouquets for them. A bouquet with the soft touches of climbing clematis and rose for Victoria, and one with bright and vibrant touches of crimson for Yulia.

Thank you girls - I love how this turned out!

Unique Vessels: Farm Fresh Toolbox

The other day one of the lovely SF Flower Mart vendors had these beautiful wild artichokes and I thought it would be fun to do an arrangement in a wooden toolbox with a farm-fresh feel. I wanted to do an arrangement with segmented clusters of flowers and fruits for a little change. I think that sometimes flowers and fruits look even more beautiful when they are placed separate from each other. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Flowers: garden rose, artichoke, persimmon, blackberry Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

I lined my toolbox so that I could put water in it. I did not have a long enough container so I used three of these plastic containers next to each other. Note: My photographer was making me laugh in this shot - I was trying to keep a straight face! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

This is a segmented arrangement, so place each ingredient together as a bunch inside the box - to me this is more like putting together a fruit basket! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Continue with each ingredient until finished - and that's it. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
