Getting creative with fresh blooms

My home has been smelling divine in the last week as I have had vases littered around my home with fresh blooms.

I recently posted about making your own flower bouquets and I think I may have even inspired myself!

 I was walking past my local fruit and vege shop which also sells fresh blooms. They have bunches already made, or you can purchase the flowers by the stem and make your own. I loved the idea of making my own and made two bunches for two very special ladies who I have been creatively working with at the moment, plus extras for me. 

I loved working with the flowers, it is something I haven't done before. 
Have you? I chose predominantly native flowers, so they were a big tougher and easier to work with as they weren't so delicate. I love the big king proteas (the big pink ones!) they were huge and really made a fabulous focal point for the bunches.

Here are some of my snaps of these pretty blooms. Enjoy!

Have you ever made your own flower bunches or bouquets? 
What are your favourite flowers?

Have a fabulous day x
