You are my sunshine, sweet mimosa

bouquet mini mimosa Hello everyone,

Yellow is not one of my favourite colours, but I must say that I have to make an exception when it comes to mimosa. Every winter it makes me happy and I really love the way it smells!

Usually I make bouquets, big and small, but this year, on top of that, I decided to make a wreath, since I learned how to make them with my dear friends from les herbes de Paris in december. <

I also used one of my pretty baskets as a vessel. I just put an empty glass of jam inside for the water supply. I think it looks very joyful and pretty. 

What about you? Do you like mimosa as well? What do your bouquets look like? Do you mix them with other flowers?  Have a lovely day and talk to you soon, Elodie

DIY: Dried Hydrangea in an indian frame

hortensia pressees Hello everyone,

This a shooting I did last year, but have been waiting for the right time to show it to you. When I bought this gorgeous hydrangea head at the flower shop I instantly fell in love. Those green and purple ones are my favorite. I bought a little flower press before living Germany and I use it a lot. I know you can press flowers and leaves in books, but I always loose them and forget I which book I left them. Hydrangea are just the perfect flowers, and the more I play with them, the more I like them.  They look beautiful in the garden, in a vase as table decoration, or as a wreath. But maybe it is pressed that I like them most. I love their texture and colours and they look so pretty in a transparent frame, such as this one from the British brand nkuku. I hope I inspired you a little bit today. I hope I will be more on the blog in the coming weeks and months. I have got a lots of plans and ideas anyway!

Take care and talk to you soon, Elodie

merciHello everyone!

I am a little bit late for my #urbanjunglebloggers post but I just couldn't resist this topic: plant and flowers! it was made for me... I am not a big fan of plants indoors and never had a ficus in my flat. But I must that I slowly changed my mind in the past few years. I am in love with succulents and cactus. Here are the reasons why: 1. I love that you can have mini versions of them. I am a mini bouquet fan and I find mini pots of cactus and succulents just too cute.

2. I love the colour palette of succulents and cactus: mint and nude and many shades of green.

3. I love that they are very low maintenance plants, which is a perfect fit to my way of life.

For this vignette, I chose flowers that really matched the tones of my plants: Café au lait dahlias, cineraria maritima, eucalyptus and globe amaranth.

I hope you do like the outcome!

Elodie

The Green Gallery

168607-The Green Gallery_Bloemenbureau Holland_2015-f2a345-large-1432664314 Hello everyone,

Last Friday, I had the privilege to attend the launch of The Green Gallery  under the arches of Amsterdam’s world famous Rijksmuseum,  – a magazine celebrating both the beauty and perishableness of nature.

In an enchanted, forest-like setting, the magazine’s content came to life, for one night only. The set up was truly magical and as I said on Instagram during the event, I had the impression to be eating inside a dutch flower painting from the 17th Century.

INSTAGRAM Picture from the Green Gallry Launch For initiator, the Flower Council of Holland, this is the best launch imaginable for their new digital magazine: “Our aim is to show the beauty of flowers and plants through inspiring, artistic and exciting content. This first issue of The Green Gallery revolves around flowers and offers high-end editorial content”, says brand manager Esther de Waard. It was just magical!

The first issue of The Green Gallery is about Flowers

and the second issue coming out this autumn will be about plants. Founding editor Nancy Berendsen created a beautifully curated magazine around flowers , with very inspiring contributors such as Luisa Brimble, Manuela Sosa or Linda Lomelino. The magazine has been created with many creative spirits from Kinfolk Magazine or Elle Deco and with bloggers from around the world. In the Green Gallery, they talk about food, stylism or fashion but their common inspiration is flowers. 

The Green Gallery is available in French, German, English and Dutch can be viewed on desktop, mobile and tablet.

Lilac and hellebores - a pink bouquet

fresh flowers from the garden Hello everyone, I publish less on the blog lately, mainly due to a busy schedule, but I am still making bouquets and enjoying it. I just come back from a very relaxing weekend at my parent's place and I have been playing with flowers and with my camera between two showers all weekend. I will show you some pictures of the garden just after the rain later this week, as I am obsessed with the beauty of rain drops, but first, let me show you my little hellebores and lilac bouquet. lilac and hellebores in the makinglilac and helleboreslilac and hellobores by madame loveHave a relaxing week everyone!

Ranunculus and hortensia

hortensia and ranonculus by madame love www.madame-love.com - the flowerblog Hello! This is the end of the weekend and even if it has been a little bit challenging with the mini, I feel like a little of a Sunday evening blues. I think the best cure for that are flowers. So here comes a mini bouquet to think of when it is getting a little bit tough this week. xoxo Elodie hortensia and ranonculus madame love flowerblog - www.madame-love.comhortensia and ranonculus on pile of books
