Easter decoration idea: Hortensia on your table

Hortensia_blue_side

Hello everyone,I just come back from the very inspiring Joyeuse Clique stylism blogger’s session in the South of France. I have just been reviewing the pictures and I can’t wait to show you the outcome in the next few days.
Today I would like to show you what you can do with Hortensia (also called Hydrangea). 

Hortensia is one of my favourite flowers.  They look so splendid in a garden and, as they love water, they are the perfect plants in rainy regions, such as Northern Germany where I live, the west coast of France or of course Great Britain.
Of course, It is not quite spring yet and you are more likely to find hydrangeas in the flower shop than in your garden. So I have decided to show you some ideas of what you can do with a pot that you can buy from the flower shop. 
If you take blue hortensia, you can create a very nice table decoration around it, with shades of green and purple. This can make a nice table for an easter brunch. I love that time of year, but I don’t need to overdecorate my table with hundreds of painted eggs or tiny kitsch hares. 
The good thing with decorating with flowers in a pot is that you can recycle them afterwards by planting them in your garden or in a nice pot on your balcony or terrace.

#2flowergirls in May – a review

Good morning!

Our #2flowergirls action for June is starting next week on Tuesday.
Inga and I announced last week on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that this month’s flower will be the peony and we are very excited about it! I think of it as a very photogenic flower that can be styled in many different ways that looks fantastic alone or as a huge bouquet or even as a flower crown.
We are very happy about the participation, the enthusiasm around the project, and the wonderful blogposts that have been submitted so far for the ranunculus and the hortensia edition – and I am personally very happy I met Inga through her lovely blog glomerylane and that we are doing this project together.

I made a little collage for you, to show you some of the photos that have been posted on all those beautiful blogs or on Instagram.
You can have a look at all the photos on our Pinterest board.

2 flower girls #4 – Hortensia

Hello flower girls (and boys)!

#2flowergirls is starting a new round today and we decided to style hortensia this time. I love them and their beautiful colour palette. They look fantastic in a garden or on your dinning table and don’t need much work. A good thing to know if you want to keep them a little longer in a vase is that they need a lot of water, so always check that you have enough water in your vase.
We are so looking forward to seeing your interpretation of hortensia styling. Please post your contribution under this blogpost and we will post the pictures on our pinterest board. If you want you can check out the ranunculus edition board. If you post some Hortensia on Instagram or Twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag: #2flowergirls.

Here are my #2flowergirls pictures:

Blue variation

Hello everyone,

I gave a little dinner party last Saturday, and it’s always the occasion for me to pimp my flat with some fresh cut flowers. When I was on the market, I bought some blue flowers. I decided not to mix them, but to make three different bouquet and display them on different spots of the flat. Here is the result. I hope you will enjoy it.
Which one do you prefer? Myosotis, delphinium or hortensia?
Speak to you soon!
