FLOWERS by ingrid & titti - Valentine's Day




It's Valentine's Day next week so Titti and I thought we start early with some romantic inspiration on our - FLOWERS by ingrid and titti - themed blog posts.

Cooking or baking will always be a special thing to do for a loved person in your life. Or cooking with your family or friends - creating a dish each - it becomes a special occasion. 



Roses can be expensive and sometimes 'less is more' - so just three red roses with a little bit of foliage in a white vintage jug - becomes the perfect simple flower arrangement. 
  


Writing a special message on a little hand printed card is always nice and of course some chocolate - in the shape of red hearts!




The first arrangement was red - so I thought my second arrangement has to be pink - another romantic colour.




I used three different pink flowers - three tulips, three Ranunculus and one hyacinth - in a little sweet vase with pink hearts and I tied a ribbon around the top.

Below is a single Ranunculus in a mini bud vase and some more chocolate hearts - this time pink to match the flowers.




Here is a link to Titti's blog - HWIT BLOGG - so you can go over and have a look at what she has done.


And you can also find our previous FLOWERS - here, here and here.

Ingrid, it's delightful, to see how you and Titti show us gifts from your imaginative and knowledgeable talents, about how to have some beautiful Valentine's flowers.

I really appreciate your generosity in sharing all this expertise.

Ranunculus are such fabulous flowers...those dense layers of petals create a mix of saturated color with delicacy.

Perfect for Valentine's Day.

Many thanks. xo

Ooh I love the PINKS this time! Especially the picotee ranunculus, I've never seen those for sale here. The foliage around the rose is lovely, I sometimes find red roses overpowering but that makes it feel a bit more delicate!
