Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday and welcome to another
fabulous Monday Morning Blooms!
I am joining my amazing flower friends,
Mary and Pam, who are
just as much in love with flowers
as I am!
You can access the links to their
beautiful floral creations
at the end of this post.
Unfortunately, Lidy was unable to join us today;
however, she’ll be back with her
beautiful floral creations.
Our common theme today is Citrus.
Welcome to my Flowers, Citrus and Silver.
I started creating this arrangement
by first placing in the most of the
citrus that I placed on skewers.
into the wet floral foam.
I then began to fill flowers in
around the citrus.
As I added the flowers,
I added a few more stems of citrus
to add additional color and texture.
In addition to the lemons, limes and mandarin oranges,
the flower arrangement consists of:
Orange Gerbera Daisies
Orange Stock Roses
Lemon Yellow Tulips
Seeded Eucalyptus for filler.
All of the above are from Trader Joe’s.
I experimented with several containers
for this citrus flower arrangement
and the silver champagne bucket
won out. It seemed to make the
colorful flowers and citrus “shine” 🙂
Using the champagne bucket,
it made it easy to place pieces of citrus
on the edge of the bucket.
My go to filler for most of my
flower arrangements is the seeded eucalyptus.
I love it for the texture
and it’s gracefulness.
Where there are flowers,
there must be dessert and
what more fitting than Key Lime Pie!
Now Lemon Meringue Pie or
Hot Orange rolls would also do!
With most flower arrangements that I create,
there are usually extra flowers left over
to place in another container and
that was the case this time.
A silver mint julep cup with the leftover flowers
sit on the coffee table with a origami crane for luck!
Hope you enjoyed my happy arrangement
of sunny citrus and flowers.
And now it’s time to visit
Mary and Pam to gain more beautiful
citrus and flower inspiration.
