White. Elegant, pure and fresh.
I love bouquets of fresh white flowers. Vanilla, ivory, cream, seashell - gorgeous shades for delicate flowers. While everyone will be bathing in outrageous red this Valentine's, I dare to be different!
It's the je ne sais quoi - the understatement such a bouquet exudes that makes it graceful. When I come downstairs in the morning and these exquisite flowers present themselves in all their glory I can't help but smile.
The quintessence of such a bouquet is keeping the flowers delicate and aesthetic rather than going for opulence. Here I have chosen a few vanilla colored roses and ivory ranunculus, flowers I absolutely love. Simply because they too are modest but beautiful. As a contrast the green leaves build a wonderful background for these flowers to show off their elegant shades of white. The stylish touch comes from a bit of silver thread that I draped around the bouquet.
So, while there will be many red bouquets this Valentine's, I give you my pure white one. As a thanks for being all that you are to me and more. My friends, my motivators, my carers, well-wishers, my minglers, my inspirers and admirers - I thank you. Without you I'd only have half of the fun I have on this blog.
Over at the Daily Tiffin we have a few great Valentine Day related articles. So, please take a few minutes to check them out.
Finally I'd like to show you what I recently got in the post.
A lovely "spicy" package from my gorgeous better half Jaden of Steamy Kitchen. She started a cool swapping event called the International Spice Swap and sent out 6 packages around the world, filled with spices and her "Secret Steamy Sweet Spicy Sambal"
I happen to be one of the first receivers of these packages. Now according to the rules of the game I am to fill it up and send the box off to another part of the world. Well I just did and am on my way to the mail office right now - with two packages. One to my secret receiver and the other to the Steamy Jaden.
