Two, well three actually, simple flower arrangements. Two are very similar and the third one is very small!
I bought two different coloured tulips to go with the hyacinths because I wanted to do a little experiment to see which one I like the best!
In the first one I have combined the bright pink hyacinths and the dark pink Statice with pink tulips. Statice is also called Limonium.
For a vase I used a vintage jug - it's a favourite of mine and it has become an old standby. It has a cream body with a wide pink stripe across the middle as well as some thin lines of gold decoration.
I used six stems of hyacinths, five tulips and instead of green foliage I filled in with pink Statice.
I put some of the short left-over Statice in another favourite vase. It's a mini bud vase - perfect for all those tiny little beauties you are reluctant to just throw away.
Like always - I condition the flowers as soon as I get them home - by removing some of the lower leaves and trimming about 2-3 cm off the bottom of the stems - always at an angle and then put the flowers in a clean container of a water. Leave the flowers in a cool place for a couple of hours before making your final arrangement.
In the second arrangement I swapped the pink tulips for some darker ones and this time I added a few more tulips to make some more impact.
Otherwise it's the same pink hyacinths and the same Statice - as in the first one.
For this arrangement I didn't want to use the same jug with the pink stripe - instead I swapped to a more neutral vase.
This one is a new bulb vase from a charity store - opaque so you can just see the stems though the glass.
Which one do you prefer - the all pink one or the one with the darker more purple tulips?
Have A Pretty Floral Day!
Will be back soon!
