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.

first anemones of 2015 – first bouquet of the year

bouquet of anemones

Good morning everyone!
Here is my first bouquet for you this year. Thank you for your comments here and on Instagram about my 2014 bouquets. It gives me the energy to continue making them and sharing them with you here.
I chose a simple multicolour bouquet of anemones. I also like the simplicity of white anemones but those little colourfull bouquets remind me of my childhood.
I am still not really installed and settled in my new life and I have to fight quite a bit with several administrations in France and in Germany. I hope it will all be okay soon and I will find the way back to blog and to flower styling.
I wish you all a great day!
Elodie

Some more anemones!

Hello everyone,
I am so happy the #2flowergirls is back on track. We have received some very pretty entries so far and there are some more still coming. You can see some of those beauties on our Pinterest board.
After I had photographed mine at the beginning of the week, I found some more anemones, this time in deep red and bright pink, that I combined with some crazy good looking red and pink scabiosa.
Here are some pictures for you, along with some pictures of my favourite flower shop in Hamburg where I found those beautiful anemones called Küchenblume. I already presented the shop here, but it was so pretty the other day, that I had to show you more pictures.
I wish you a great day full of flowers!

My yellow anemones

Hello everyone,
I haven’t been very active on the blog lately. Soon, I will reveal you why, and I hope I will find more time to write and publish more. Today I want to share some simple and extraordinary flowers at the same time with you. I have always loved anemones. We used to buy some with my mum for my piano teacher who loved them when I was a little girl: the classical red, white and blue mix. The other day I the flower shop, I found some yellow ones! They don’t naturally grow that way, they are artificially coloured, which I usually hate, but this time, I love the result!
What do you think?
I also love how they contrast with the blue grape hyacinths.

#1.2 – 2 flower girls by Glomerylane & madame love

Hello everyone,
Maybe you couldn’t wait to see Inga’s flowers yesterday and had a look at the Glomerylane blog already. Today I will be presenting her flowers on madame love as well. It is stunning to see how you can achieve a very different styling with the same flowers.

I also love the dark background, and the texture of the fabric on some of the photos. I think it gives the composition a very strong atmosphere that contrasts beautifully with the cuteness of the owl.
I found this first edition of “2 flower girls” very exciting and stimulating. What do think? I am really curious to hear about your reaction. To be continued in February.

PS: you can find the pretty owl at Lys Vintage.
