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

les herbes de Paris à la campagne

statueHello everyone,

How time flies, I realise today we are already in december and I still haven’t posted the pictures from my autumnal shooting with les herbes de Paris.
At the end of October I invited my florist friends Jefferson and Julie Pomme to my parent’s place in Picardy to play around with flowers. We started the day with a walk in the garden and the forest to pick flowers, branches and fruits. After lunch, we spent the afternoon making bouquets and flower wreaths. I mostly photographed and they made the bouquets. Very unusual for me, but it was very interesting for me to step back for once and concentrate on one task. My mum was worried that there wouldn’t be enough flowers to play with, but on the contrary it was just perfect! There were still a couple of incredibly big dahlias and tiny roses and so much variety of foliage and branches in a beautiful colour palette, that you only find in autumn.
It was my second photo shooting with “les herbes de Paris”. The first one has been featured in the last issue of sister-mag and they taught me how to make flower wreaths last Saturday.
Here are a couple of pictures from that day.
I hope there will be many more to come. I think we are a good team and love working together!
Have a good day you all!
Elodie

Hydrangea on the breakfast table

hydrangea_breakfast_1

Hello everyone!
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,
Elodie
