SUNDAY INSPIRATION

The weather is beautiful here this weekend and we are trying to be outside as much ass possible. Easter is getting closer and today I'm showing you a quick little decoration that will make a perfect hostess gift. Use cut flowers of your choice and stick them into a piece of flower foam. Cover the foam with plastic and place it in your nest/container. Add a small figur or some eggs for decoration.
 
Have a beautiful Sunday! /Annika

WEDNESDAY NESTING

Do you ever get creative ideas when you dream? Well, I do and the other day I woke up, having dreamed about a flower nest made from Gypsophila or also called Baby's Breath, with some eggs and small flowers in the middle. I don't know whether this was a symbolic dream or if it needs any pondering...except it's always inspiring to wake up in the morning with creative ideas.
This small decoration will last a long time, since Gypsophila is quite beautiful, when it's dried too and you can occasionally change the flowers in the eggs for another color or fresher look.
 
Have a great day! /Annika

 

 

MONDAY FLOWERS

Hello dear readers! Hope you're all well? I'd  like to apologize for our very sparse posting over the last week. Things has been a bit busy around here and sometimes life just takes over :-). I'm pretty sure you know how that feels.
Today I just wanted to post a few pictures of a really cute decoration. A simple viola in a small glass/jar, where the roots are visible, is very decorative. You can add some moss and an egg to create a bit of easter feel.
My grandmother loved violas and when I was a kid she used to tell me, that you could see a little queen sitting in the middle of the flower and that the petals were her stupendous colorful dress. So every time I see a viola, I'm reminded of my grandmother and her love for flowers. It's a beautiful way to remember a person. 
 
Have a wonderful Monday! /Annika
 
 

 

 

Easter Decoration

I love working with natural materials and after having moved to our new house last summer, with a garden that is filled with lovely trees and bushes, I can just take a step outside, and I'll find an enormous amount of inspiration right in front of me. We were told that the previous owners planted 25 different kind of trees here.
 
This decoration is suited for both in- and outdoor. Use it as a centerpiece for Easter-Lunch or place it outside, where it will stay a beautiful decoration for a long time, when it´s still cold outside (even though the tulips are without water). The plate is made out of birch branches. Form a ring from the branches, and secure with wire. Add branches untill you get the size you want. Leave the tulips without water for a couple of hours, that will make it easier to bend them, and secure them with wire. Finish the decoration by placing eggs in different colours and sizes in the middle.
 
Have a wonderful Sunday /Sussi

SPRING IN A POT

This flower pot is one of my favorite choices, for when I make flower arrangement. Like a lot of my stuff, this one is also found at a flea market. The seller had left the pot outside for a long time, so he was surprised that he was able to sell it. But to me it was just perfect :-) Of course I hardly had to pay anything for it. 
The arrangement is made out of Muscari and Viola in a wonderful mix, some mos, small pieces of bark and some branches. 
 
Have a nice Tuesday :-) /Sussi  
 
 

MUSCARI CENTERPIECE

As I mentioned the other day, Sussi was going to make this beautiful spring decoration. We are having a birthday party today, so the decoration is made as a centerpiece.
 
You can make this with pretty much any cut flower of your choice. The flowers are stuck into a piece of flower foam. The bark is functioning as the vase/container and the foam is covered with brown sand and some moss. This is a fairly easy project with lots of room for creative ideas. Have a great Saturday! /Annika
 
 

TULIP DECORATION

This decoration will work wonder as a hostess gift and instead of the typical bouquet.
 
MATERIALS:
20 tulips (depends on the size of you pot)
Flora foam
Twine/string
Flower wire or pins,
A pot (we choose an oval pot 25 x 13 cm)
Salal (or green leaves of your choice)
Moss (any kind will do, this one is a silver moss)
 
HOW TO:
Soak the flower foam well in water and cut it to fit the shape of the pot.
Strip the tulips for leaves and cut the stem about 5 cm from the head. Roll some of the stripped leaves and secure with pins or wire. Start by placing a couple of salal on each side of the pot in the foam. Then randomly place out the tulips and the rolled leaves as you like. Take the moss and fill in the gaps. Make a bow from the string and secure with a pin on either side of the decoration and Voila! You're done!
 
Have a creative Saturday! /Sussi

LOVELY MUSCARI

Muscari have the most lovely blue color. They are sure to spread some early spring feeling and will easily last a week or two indoor. They are easy to plant, don't need much water and if you decorate with a bit of moss and twigs...it will look like a forest bottom.
Tomorrow we will post a 'how to' on a really cute tulip decoration. So stay tuned! 
 
Have a great Friday! /Annika
 
 

SPRING WHIFFINGS

I went to work with my sister today, to photograph some of all the flowery creations she makes. It's always fun to watch her work and to help out, but it's really hard walking amongst all these flowers and whiffs of spring and not wanting it to be April already. It has been so cold here the last couple of weeks and all this greenery just make you want to sit on a park bench, take of your shoes, drink a cup of cocoa and enjoy an early spring sun and the promises of warmer months to come. /Annika
 
 

FLOWER CENTERPIECE

Yesterday I went with my sister to help her out at work. There was a big order for 13 centerpieces which she had to do and I had to help out with the customers and do a few bouquets. I am getting better at the whole flower thing, although I have a completely different set of rules when making bouquets and wrapping them. Let's just say that it is a good thing that I'm not paid by the piece :) I snapped a few pictures of the beautiful centerpieces my sister made. So gorgeous.
 
Way to go Sis! /Annika
