There are a couple of places in my home where a bouquet is absolutely necessary ~ a space that just calls for flowers.
One of these spots is on this little credenza in my living room. Nothing seems to work here for me but a big, lavish bouquet. And here is the one for winter 2013!
I dried a lot of flowers last summer and I brought out most of them for this bouquet ~
Statice, Yarrow, Hydrangeas, various herbs, and Sea Lavender among other things.
I combined it all with Eucalyptus I clipped from the nearby bridle path.
It is just what I wanted: soft and subdued, suitable I think for these cooler months of winter.
When spring arrives I will replace this bouquet with lighter and more colorful blooms from the garden. For now though I am very happy that I took the time to dry these and next year I plan on even doing more.
Have you ever dried flowers? If not you might want to give it a try. I did all of these by the hang dry method ~ super-duper easy!
Thank you for visiting
