I am on holiday this week. Yeah! The best way to start your holiday or a day off is with a long breakfast and a pretty breakfast table.
It is almost the end of the hydrangea season and I decided to decorate the table with a little plant in a cup. So pretty and simple and so easy to replant afterwards.
Wednesday is bank holiday here in France, so it might be a good idea if you are invited for a brunch to bring a mini-hydrangea in a pretty enameled cup as gift.
I wish you all a very relaxed week,

I am a little bit late for my #urbanjunglebloggers post but I just couldn’t resist this topic: plant and flowers! it was made for me… I am not a big fan of plants indoors and never had a ficus in my flat. But I must that I slowly changed my mind in the past few years. I am in love with succulents and cactus. Here are the reasons why:
1. I love that you can have mini versions of them. I am a mini bouquet fan and I find mini pots of cactus and succulents just too cute.
2. I love the colour palette of succulents and cactus: mint and nude and many shades of green.
3. I love that they are very low maintenance plants, which is a perfect fit to my way of life.
For this vignette, I chose flowers that really matched the tones of my plants: Café au lait dahlias, cineraria maritima, eucalyptus and globe amaranth.
I used to have a lot of time for madame love, a lot of me time. Now I have a lot less of it, between work, the endless commute and baby love. But I don’t want to let this part of me abandoned and I am trying to find a way to still post my bouquets here. Today I wanted to share with you this little bouquet of hydrangea and show you how you can make something spectacular with flowers from your garden and a pretty vase. I am completely obsessed with this colour palette this days and I love how the green of the eucalyptus works together with the white and pale pink of the hydrangea.
Have a nice day today and speak to you soon!
Scabiosa and sweet peas in my living room right now. I am so in love!
I am packing my bag for Munich where the book I contributed to will be launched on Friday night. I will tell you more about it on the blog soon
In the mean time, you can follow my German adventures on Instagram.
Speak to you soon!
I hope you are doing well. I have been working a lot on the blog, doing some necessary but invisible things, coding, resizing, etc.. for the relaunch and I hope you like the new look. But a blog isn’t a portfolio and it’s not only the shop that is important but what comes inside it. I am glad to be back at arranging flowers and showing you the result today. I am quite desperate with my garden this days: The soil is so bad and so full of stones that nothing is growing properly. Only those beautiful cornflowers seem to like very much. So I made a little messy bouquet after work today and I quite like it. I hope you do too!
Have a nice day and talk to you soon!
I am back tonight with another bouquet from last weekend. I am still using the Pierre de Ronsard roses from my mum’s garden but I decided to mix them with some irises that are growing next to the pond. I usually try to stick to one colour scheme when I make my bouquets and avoid mixing blues and pinks. but I really think it works in this arrangement.
Don’t you think?
I like the contrast between the colours and also between the length of the stems. I also added some blue aquilegia to enhance the irises.
I hope you like this one as much as I do.
I wish you all a good night!
