Soft Spring Pastels: Flower Arranging from the Cut Flower Patch


Sadly, my seasonal love affair with the ranunculus and double tulips has almost come to an end. With only a few more tulip and ranunculus posts to share with everyone, I guess that it’s time to start dreaming about warm weather flowers. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though. 

The more and more that I used the Amazing Grace tulips this year, the more I realize that they were playing a major role in my “designs”. I put that word in quotes because, let’s face it, I’m just a person playing with flowers in their backyard.

The Elegance Salmon ranunculus were hands down one of the most enchanting flowers in my garden this spring. Before this year, I had only seen them online, and finding the corms wasn’t an easy task. However, the color is perfect. These ranunculus are everything that I could ever ask of a cut flower.

I finished off the arrangement with a little bit of tulip foliage and some small bells of Ireland. Though our bells of Ireland were a complete failure this year, I was able to salvage a couple usable stems. I really loved this arrangement. What do you think? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below!
