Welcome to MONDAY MORNING BLOOMS!

 

 

 

I hope you will love what Mary, Pam, Shirley and I have prepared for you today.

 

 

 

I will give you my friend’s links at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

 

Today we’re creating a flower arrangement in an urn.

 

 

 

I have had “sneak peeks” of their flowers, and they are    

 

 

 

 

so.     very.     beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At FrenchGardenHouse, we’re remodeling our master bedroom & bathroom,

 

 

 

 

 

guest bathroom, and our small walk in closet too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a delight to gaze at these gorgeous flowers in our bedroom,

 

 

 

 

because this little area is the only one that doesn’t have flooring,

 

 

 

 

boxes, tile and an all-around m e s s everywhere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many enchanting summer flowers

 

 

 

 

to create a lavish arrangement in an urn with –

 

 

 

both in the garden and in the shops.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since peonies are still available here

 

 

 

 

I choose these softest pink ones to be the star of this arrangement.

 

 

 

And lucky for me, we just received a shipment of antique cast iron urns

 

 

 

 

from France in the shop!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The patina and aged silver grey is the perfect compliment to the

 

 

 

 

soft colors of this summer arrangement, don’t you agree?

 

 

 

 

 

FLOWER RECIPE:

 

Lavender Stock flowers

Pink chrysanthemums

Pink peonies

Ivy cuttings from the garden

1 small cutting from our pink trumpet vine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TO CREATE AN ARRANGEMENT LIKE THIS:

 

You will need:

An antique French urn or similar container

1 glass container (drinking glass) to fit in the urn

clear florists tape

floral scissors

A selection of flowers.

 

 

 Start creating:

1. Tape off a grid with the clear florist tape on top of the glass.

2. Fill glass with water, and insert into the urn.

3. Start by adding the tall lavender stock flowers to the urn to build your shape.

4. Arrange the ivy cuttings to the base of the urn.

5. Now add the soft pink chrysanthemums, trying to fill in the gaps to make the arrangement fuller.

6. Once you have all the main flowers in, add the peonies. I placed my bunch where they would really shine,

since they are the stars of this arrangement .

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it!

 

 

Thank you so much for joining me today

 

 

in my remodeling mess!

 

 

I hope to show you the completed reveal in  a month or two! {fingers crossed}
