Saddleshoos over at A Rockridge Life is making me reconsider the fabulosity of flower arrangements. Usually, my mind is of the divide-and-conquer kind––I like to disassemble bouquets, put similar species in smaller vases and then scatter them around, like this. It’s foolproof and kind of a cop-out, I know. Because balancing disparate blooms is no small skill…look at the above, for example. And this one by Saddleshoos, too, the result of a rainy day:
From her blog I’ve gathered that she’s had some training––she’s worked at a flower shop near her home called Bloomies, which always seems to have the best of what’s in season. (I envy her this; in my Italian-American ‘hood mums rule). So what’s the secret, Saddleshoos? Any tips? Looking at your arrangements, I found myself thinking––Recipes for Fresh-Cut Centerpieces! I’d buy the book.
