Ranunculus and hortensia

hortensia and ranonculus by madame love www.madame-love.com - the flowerblog

Hello!
This is the end of the weekend and even if it has been a little bit challenging with the mini, I feel like a little of a Sunday evening blues. I think the best cure for that are flowers. So here comes a mini bouquet to think of when it is getting a little bit tough this week.

Hellebores from the garden

hellebores_by_madame_love_1

Hello everyone,
I don’t have as much time as I would like to, to blog since I started my new job in February, but I still keep some time for myself to make bouquets and photography them at the weekend: This is my way to relax and forget about my little worries and anxieties.
I made this bouquet at my parent’s place in Picardy with all the flowers I could find in the garden:

Hellebores
Ivy and
Heather

I wish you all a great day!

monochrome bouquet: purple!

purple bouquet_2

Hello everyone!
I hope you are all doing well! The week is already a bit old, but today I would like to show you the flowers I shot at home on Sunday. The weather was cold but very sunny and I enjoyed the nap of the little miss to make a bouquet and do my first open air shooting at home in the garden. It was very enjoyable!
I decided to mix different flowers but to stick to one colour: purple. 
I really like monochrome bouquets – sticking to one colour and playing with shapes and palettes. I think, that way, you notice better the different colours of the scabiosa and of the heart of the anemone. 
For this bouquet, I chose:

  • scabiosa
  • veronica
  • anemones 
  • eucalyptus (for the green touch)

You can see which is which in the picture underneath.

madame love loves: les petites emplettes

les petites emplettesHello everyone! 

I hope you had a great week end! Time to relax and enjoy some time with your family. Today I would like to share another online shop crush I had lately. It is a French shop again called “les petites emplettes” – I love the natural style of their furnitures and objects. What do you think? Lovely and very French isn’t it?

How to make the perfect mini bouquet with some mimosa

bouquet mimosa hortensia

Hello everyone,
As I told you yesterday, I would like to show you another way to use mimosa. Not at the opulent flower that can live on its own, but as a perfect flower for miniature bouquets. I love the combination with the blue hortensia. 
If you have many little vases, or even shot glasses, this can make a lovely table decoration with one individual mini bouquet in front of each plate.

Have a great day!

mimosa from the market

mimosa

Mimosa is such a happy flower. I love that in blooms in the middle of winter in the south of France. I decided to make this bouquet in a green art deco vase my mum gave me for my birthday in October. I love the contrast and the colour combination. 
I will show you later this week, how you can use mimosa in combination with other flowers for mini bouquets. 
I wish you all a great and sunny day, and if it’s not sunny where you live, you can still buy some mimosa to brighten up your day.
Take care and speak to you soon,
Elodie
