There is nothing like fresh flowers to make your home alive and beautiful. Since I am not going to stores to buy flowers, I have been looking through my archives for beautiful bouquets I like. Today I’m just sharing some of my favorites. I hope I’ve included some of yours too. Flowers make me happy.
Roses are one of my favorite flowers. I am not successful at growing them here in Florida although I know 2 people who work really hard and have roses. Most of us don’t want to work that hard when so many other flowers grow easily here in central Florida.
Let’s start with a professional bouquet my friend got for her birthday a few years ago. I just love this bouquet. Roses and baby’s breath are one of my favorite combinations. It’s not a spring bouquet but then again, why not? I love roses anytime in any color.
Next is a bouquet I made 3 years ago with white and pink roses and alstroemeria. I really like the mix of 2 soft colored roses.
Baby’s breath and alstroemeria are two of my favorite fillers in a bouquet.
Last spring I had fun making bouquets with amaryllis cuttings from the yard with flowers from the store. I love white hydrangea with a large bold red flower.
Everything is better with lacy baby’s breath.
Several of my earliest posts from 2016 were of bouquets I bought at the farmer’s market. I just re-edited the photos if you want to click through and see. My photos are better than 4 years ago and I couldn’t stand them. They look better now. I still think these first 2 bunches of flowers were some of the prettiest bouquets I’ve ever seen. Tom from the farmer’s market taught me to take a large gorgeous flower like amaryllis and add fillers for background. Who would have thought simple little begonia flowers could add so much to a bouquet? On my to-do-list when I finally return to the world, a stop in the garden center for begonias.
Last spring I tried arranging tulips and hydrangea. I like that look so much and really meant to do another this year, but life has a way of blowing plans to the wind.
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at a few bouquets from the past. Wishing you a bright, sunny May day.
