Blue Glass Beauties

Today's post is a quick and simple idea for any dinner party, weekend get together with friends, or just any about any occasion. When I saw these glasses, I thought they would make adorable vessels. I chose some spring flowers with different textures (some even have a sweet aroma) in pink and magenta hues as a lovely contrast with the blue. The beauty of these arrangements is that any single one is lovely on its own, and when put together in a cluster they lend a nice textural complexity to the table. Note: You could replace the pink/magenta flowers with white and red and you would have a lovely U.S. Independence Day arrangement! / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood

Everyday Simple Statements

Happy Monday! After all of the activity of Mother's Day, I thought that it would be nice to do some very simple statement pieces. To me, 'simple statement' arrangements are those that are both simple in ingredients and creation, but also arrangements that can be placed anywhere within the home. These two arrangements are just as at home on a piano as they would be on a bedroom nightstand or fireplace mantle. / Kiana Underwood

Begin with the black mystic and lamb's ear / Kiana Underwood

Continue with the ranunculus, with larger flowers closer to the neck of the vase / Kiana Underwood

Add the grape hyacinth / Kiana Underwood

Finish with additional ranunculus buds to add height and texture / Kiana Underwood

In this simple piece, a single ingredient is used - boronia. It is quite fragrant, and the lovely pink of the boronia against the matte white of the tall urn adds a lovely splash of color wherever you place it. / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood / Kiana Underwood
