Inspired by spring

 

Janna Brown and Katie Grant are both amazing creators, with Janna putting together this gorgeous bouquet that includes clematis, peonies, roses and ranunculus, and Katie capturing it on camera. Their efforts make me want to dive into the garden right now and plant every single one of these flowers.



For more colour, take a look at New Mexico florist Melissa Paquin’s stunning bouquet, photographed by Alicia Lucia. Flowers include orange ranunculus, moth orchids and buddleia.

I’m also loving this bridal bouquet with the everlasting flowers – Helichrysum bracteatum. They’ve been pooh-poohed over the past years as being old-fashioned, but they’re slowly making a comeback, with beautiful new varieties on the market. I love them, and I’ll be planting lots more this this spring. This bouquet was put together by Ambedo Floral and photographed by Sara Weir.

This bouquet, which features over at Nouba, contains everlasting flowers as too. These are a wine-burgundy colour. Love them!

Spring arrangements

 

Need inspiration for home-picked flowers? Check out these gorgeous spring creations. This lovely arrangement by Meades Florist (above) includes tulips, roses, chamomile and clematis. It’s a simple bouquet that works with any flower – whatever is popping up in the garden now.

This is a late spring arrangement (above) with foxgloves, campanula, dahlias, snapdragons and yarrow. All these blooms are long lasting in the garden, and the vase – it would make an excellent summer display too. You can see this arrangement over at Casa di Stile.

Who doesn’t love ranunculus and cabbage roses with their soft, billowing petals and sheer elegance? Ranunculus come in all colours, so if orange is not your thing, there are a multitude of other hues that will fit the bill. This arrangement features over at 100 Layer Cake, the flowers by Brown Paper Design and photography by Annie McElwain.

I LOVE this arrangement by Charlotte of Tradgardsflow with tulips, cowslips, geranium and lily of the valley. So very simple yet so elegant.
