Good morning everyone!
I am so happy to start this new edition of the #2flowergirlswith my friend Inga from glomerylane with a flower that hasn’t got such a good reputation: carnation. I really don’t know why, because they are so lovely and come and beautiful vibrant colours.
If you want to play with us, you can post the link to your post here or on Inga’s blog. You can also post your carnation on Instagram, with the #2flowergirls hashtag. We will collect your flowers on our Carnation Pinterest board.
For my bouquet, I was inspired by mexican art and by the flowers, Frida Kahlo used to wear in her hair. The beautiful fabric I used for the backgound is by Phillip Jacobs for Rowan. I was really inspired by this fabric for composing my bouquet. I love combining fabric with flowers. What do you think about it?
I wish you all a great day, and I can’t wait to discover your little beauties!
Your flower girl, Elodie
as announced previously, the #2flowergirls with madame love and glomerylane will be back in February!
The flower to style for this month will be the Anemone. If you want to participate for the first time, here is how it works. Inga and myself will be posting our flowers on 26.02., so you have a little time to find your anemones, style and shoot them!

Hello dear flower girls and boys,
I hope you are all doing well!
The time has come for the new edition of my #2flowergirls project with my dear Inga from the blog glomerylane. As Inga is in hospital at the moment, as I explained last week, I am a single flower girl this time. You can put the link to your blogpost under this post.
If you want to participate for the first time, you can read here how it works.
Inga and I decided to style this underestimated flower for the November edition: the chrysanthemum. I have always liked them, even though it’s not the first flower that comes to my mind when I am going to a flower shop. So this time, I am going out of my comfort zone as well and not stlyling a most-loved or favourite flower.
One of the good things with chrysanthemums is that they are very strong flowers that will last a long time when cut.
The glass vase is from Zara home and is sold as a bathroom accessory but I found it far too pretty not to put flowers in it. The little vase is a tea cup from the Alice collection by Vienna-based artist Sandra Haischberger. I bought it at the great Milchmädchen shop as a birthday present for myself, with a little bouquet in mind of course! I love the soft and grey colours of the collection. I took the cup in soft pink and the saucer in dark grey.
I hope you will enjoy my styling. I can’t want to see what you have been up to!
We are already in November! A new month also means a new #2flowergirls edition. As you may have seen on Steffi’s Blog, Inga is in hospital this month for her transplantation – and we are all thinking of her and crossing our fingers.
I discussed with her in the past weeks if we should pause the #2flowergirls project while she is in hospital, but she told that it would make her happy if we continued arranging and photographing flowers during that time. So, let’s rock it together and do some flower magic for Inga.
We have decided to play with Chrysanthemums this month. Are you in?
I will be posting on 11th November and you can take part as usual until the end of the month and post the link to your blogpost under my blogpost.
I wish you a great Sunday!
Your flower girl – Elodie
this is my first blogpost today since the birth of my daughter Ella three weeks ago. Inga and I are back with this autumnal edition of #2flowergirls. We chose the most autumnal of all flowers, the dahlia. I chose some deep red and orange ones, I found on my local market. I added some guelder rose berries and some rose hips to the bouquet and displayed some decorative pumpkins on the table to give it a more rustic aspect. Today’s #2flowergirls will be on madame love only, but I will show you one of Inga‘s photos.
If you want to participate, you can post a link to your blogpost in the comment field under this post and show us how you styled and photographed your dahlias. You can also send us the photos by e-mail or post them on Instagram or Twitter along with the #2flowergirls hashtag. We will then collect the photos and post them on our Dahlia’s board on Pinterest.
I am so happy today: #2flowergirls has reached round number 6! and for the fourth time, Inga from glomerylane and I are inviting others to buy the given flowers, style them and post them on their blogs or send them by e-mail.
We then collect the blogposts and post the pictures on Pinterest.
Here are the pictures of the ranunculus, the hortensia and the peonies. We are going to collect the beautiful roses here.
If you want to participate, you can post a link to your blogpost in the comment field here or under Inga’s blogpost. You can also send us the photos by e-mail or post them on Instagram or Twitter along with the #2flowergirls hashtag.
The last edition was great and the blogosphere got very inspired by the peonies. I hope the free range/garden roses will inspire you as much. Continue reading →
Hello dear readers,
Today is the big day for the start of #2flowergirls in June with madame love and glomerylane.
The flower of the month is the peony and I am very much looking forward to seeing your creations and see which variety you found. There are more the 200 varieties of peonies, from white to purple, from yellow to light pink.
Peonies are called pivoines in French and Pfingstrosen in German (Pentecost) as they usually bloom at that time of year and are many people’s favorite flowers. No wonder, they just look gorgeous in the garden, in an exuberant bouquet and are a classic for weddings. So let’s the peonie’s explosion start!
Please post a link to your blogpost in the comment field underneath or on Inga’s blog and we will post your photos on our peony pinterest board. For those who don’t have a blog or don’t want to blog about it, you can just post a picture on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #2flowergirls or send us your peonies per email.
I hope you will like my pictures. I tried to show the variety as much as possible and found 6 different ones from 3 different flower shops yesterday, and displayed them in single vases.
