A Bunch for the Weekend - # 104 - Pon-Pon and Cappuccino Ranunculus


This week on 'A Bunch for the Weekend' - I'm featuring a fabulous bunch of mixed Pon-Pon and Cappuccino Ranunculus - absolutely gorgeous in both shape and colour.


Here is a little "statement" that I add - to briefly explaining my thinking behind these particular posts:

"It's always a pleasure and lots of fun to buy a bunch of flowers for the weekend and this series of blog posts, called 'A Bunch for the Weekend, I will show you how you can make quick and easy flower arrangements for your home. 

Buy the flowers where it's convenient and easy for you whether that is from a flower stall, farmers' market, the supermarket or a florist. 


Always try to buy seasonal flowers - they will last longer and they will be a lot cheaper.


Make sure you condition the flowers as soon as you get home. Remove any foliage that will end up below the waterline in the vase. Trim the ends of the stems at an angle and put in fresh water as soon as possible."



Sometimes I find flowers at my local flower stall that makes me go weak at the knees and I instantly fall in love with them. 

These two Ranunculus are really quite special - the pon-pon one has ruffled petals and the colouring on the petals vary from flower to flower.

The Cappuccino style has very distinct bands of stronger colours on the edges of the petals.  


A few delicious cherries in a little dish. The colour echos the dark pink in the flowers.


I have not used a lot of colourful props apart from the cherries and the pink stripe on the jug. I wanted nothing that would make the eye leave the flowers.

Just a softly folded unbleached linen runner and a few clear glass containers in the back - just visible.


This is the kind of flowers that doesn't need any other flowers or foliage. They are a statement just by themselves - nothing else is needed.

I have varied the height of the stems to give the arrangement some added texture and movement.


Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral weekend!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I will be back on Sunday morning with another 'Florets - a new floral quote by someone passionate about flowers. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you back here then.
