#2flowergirls - The Carnation Edition

2flowergirls_carnation_pink Good morning everyone! I am so happy to start this new edition of the #2flowergirls with my friend Inga from glomerylane with a flower that hasn't got such a good reputation: carnation. I really don't know why, because they are so lovely and come and beautiful vibrant colours.  If you want to play with us, you can post the link to your post here or on Inga's blog. You can also post your carnation on Instagram, with the #2flowergirls hashtag. We will collect your flowers on our Carnation Pinterest board. For my bouquet, I was inspired by mexican art and by the flowers, Frida Kahlo used to wear in her hair. The beautiful fabric I used for the backgound is by Phillip Jacobs for Rowan. I was really inspired by this fabric for composing my bouquet. I love combining fabric with flowers. What do you think about it? I wish you all a great day, and I can't wait to discover your little beauties! Your flower girl, Elodie

So - now I am back from my short stay in France. I stayed in Lyon and visited some dear friends and my cousin and spent the weekend in the Auvergne for the wedding of my oldest friend. It was really nice!The first thing I did when I came back was buying flowers. You know me! I think that a flat always looks a bit sad when you come back from a holiday and flowers are the best antidote against sadness! I used the pretty vases I bought in the lovely Lieblingszimmer shop and decorated one of them with some washi tape. I am usually not a big fan of carnations but I really got inspired by the intensity of their colours and I used the wonderful French fabric from Petit Pan as a backdrop for my pictures.
