When it comes to arranging flowers, I like to (usually) keep it simple. There’s something very alluring about a full bouquet, but one thing I don’t like about it is- there are too many details! A few get missed each time you admire the arrangement, because there obviously is a bigger focal point (larger blooms, more foliage). 

So, today, I thought I’d pick just eight roses (two in each colour) and try to make them look kinda beautiful. The beautiful part was super easy, because flowers don’t need grand vases or anything really, to look beautiful. They already are.

Which got me thinking- when people pick out flowers, they usually (me too, on some counts) want the most attractive and (mostly) expensive vase to go with it.

So, instead of just putting these lovelies in a nice vase, I thought I’d try placing them in..everyday objects.

Here are the objects I used:

– a mug (the one pictured here  I picked up on a whim, because it was oversized! Seriously, it’s so big you could pour five cups of coffee in there and it still wouldn’t be full. I picked it up from the shop because I thought I could use it as a pen holder, haha)

-an empty food tin I painted with acrylic paints in a messy and smudgy effect

-empty glass jars (nutella, jam etc)

Um. I don’t exactly know what you’re thinking right now (Jam jars? Really?)..but let me tell you! The results were kinda nice! Here’s the lowdown:

I trimmed the roses until they were thorn free, leaf free and cut them to the length I wanted.3 Quick Flower Arrangements with everyday objects at home- mugs, old glass jars and food tins.

The pop of colours is just too lovely. I seriously love warm tones like reds, yellows, and a glowing pink added to the mix.

    I always put my flowers in a glass bottle I have (from soy sauce I think) and in a beer glass. It’s a bit unconventional but it looks beautiful, especially if you have a minimal vibe going in the house, it just adds to that.
    Love your photos and that “Breathe” poster!
