Friday Fun Stuff..The Power of Flowers En Masse


Remember  when we used to spend hours arranging a single bouquet? I find I bring flowers in from the garden much more  often now that I can just cut a huge bunch and drop them in a simple container.
How pretty are these simple white tulips?

Hydrangeas make some of the easiest single species bouquets because they are so large.

  2. Definitely! Other than my lack of talent at flower arranging, the simplicity of one kind of bloom in a vase just makes me happy!

  4. I'm the biggest fan - love bringing home a bunch of any type of flowers from the farmer's market or grocery store - so easy to put in a vase and they look wonderful!

  5. I love masses of the same flower in vases. I am not at all a fan of "mixed" bouquets, or anything still and arranged-looking. You see, great minds think alike. Great post !!

  9. I do! Great collection here Cindy and yours are lovely....just the right height. Can one every have enough flowers in a house? I think not! I have recently discovered another purpose for my small Moroccan tea glasses...I have six and use them to make up small bouquets from the garden for the dinner table and around the house. Just loving them.. xxx
