Home: Orange Flowers

Orange Rose by MeetA

It's been something I've wanted to do for a while. Share a bit of home design with you. I actually even started off last year with a few ideas but somehow, like so many things, the idea got lost in the daily routine.

Then the lovely Janelle of Talk of Tomatoes created a great event called Centerpiece of The Month and I have been wanting to take part in it for absolutely forever. The perfect kick to get on with my home design session here on the blog.

So, for my first entry to this event I present to you a bouquet in orange. The flowers are entirely courtesy of my neighbor. She lives a few houses down the road and has the most gorgeous garden one has ever set their eyes on. She's 55 and has a small flower shop - how convenient eh?

Well whenever Soeren and I are over to visit I am never allowed to leave without a bouquet of flowers cut from her garden.

Orange Gerbera by MeetaA

Today we put together a dream in orange. As I was wearing an orange blouse and feeling high spirited she suggested I take this lovely summer color home with me. She put together roses, gerberas and berries. Then she gave me the bunch and I tied it up into a bouquet.

At home I placed it in a rectangular glass vase. Looks lovely doesn't it!

Finally I also got around to taking a picture of that lovely apron I won for these blondies. Thanks once again to Myriam!
