You are my sunshine, sweet mimosa

bouquet mini mimosa

Hello everyone,

Yellow is not one of my favourite colours, but I must say that I have to make an exception when it comes to mimosa. Every winter it makes me happy and I really love the way it smells!

Usually I make bouquets, big and small, but this year, on top of that, I decided to make a wreath, since I learned how to make them with my dear friends from les herbes de Paris in december. <

I also used one of my pretty baskets as a vessel. I just put an empty glass of jam inside for the water supply. I think it looks very joyful and pretty. 

What about you? Do you like mimosa as well? What do your bouquets look like? Do you mix them with other flowers? 
Have a lovely day and talk to you soon,
Elodie

DIY: Dried Hydrangea in an indian frame

hortensia pressees

Hello everyone,

This a shooting I did last year, but have been waiting for the right time to show it to you.
When I bought this gorgeous hydrangea head at the flower shop I instantly fell in love. Those green and purple ones are my favorite.
I bought a little flower press before living Germany and I use it a lot. I know you can press flowers and leaves in books, but I always loose them and forget I which book I left them.
Hydrangea are just the perfect flowers, and the more I play with them, the more I like them.  They look beautiful in the garden, in a vase as table decoration, or as a wreath.
But maybe it is pressed that I like them most. I love their texture and colours and they look so pretty in a transparent frame, such as this one from the British brand nkuku.
I hope I inspired you a little bit today.
I hope I will be more on the blog in the coming weeks and months. I have got a lots of plans and ideas anyway!

Take care and talk to you soon,
Elodie

Hydrangea and eucalyptus in a medicis vase

Hello everyone,

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!
