Behind the Scene - # 2 - Styling White Stock Flowers



Buying flowers is an investment - so my aim is to use the same bunch of flowers for several different photo shoots. It doesn't always work out - flowers wilt too quickly often caused by drastic changes in the outdoor temperature. I always keep my flowers outside during the night. 



Here I have used the same white stock flowers as in the last 'Behind the Scene'.

They were already conditioned so I didn't have to remove any lower leaves or cut any of the stems - as I was just going to show the bunch lying on a table on a unbleached natural linen fabric. 


All I did was to make a hand-tied bunch and then I tied the stems with a natural twine - simple and easy. The natural twine works well with the simplicity of the white flowers.


Staying with the natural theme you could wrap the flowers in plain brown paper and they could then be given as a gift - or you could just snip the stems and put the flowers in a vase or container.

In the last image I have changed the scissors to one a bit more aesthetically pleasing - just because I wanted to!

A simple and easy theme: White flowers - natural twine - on a vintage washed French linen cloth.


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I look forward to seeing you later in the week - when I'll be back with more floral delights.
