With every new month and new Urban Jungle Bloggers topic I make an illusional plan ahead. This month I will take my time, this time I will prepare everything well in advance, this time I even thought of getting a really nice flower bouquet from a florist for the styling. And then reality smacks my face. I am running around, traveling, working and I end up doing everything like every month: last minute. Going to the florist around the corner after work, running back home and quickly throwing the plants and flowers together and photo shooting them before the sun sets. So yes, it’s yet another regular Urban Jungle Bloggers styling post on Happy Interior Blog!
Nevertheless I hope you will enjoy my messy plants and flowers arrangements. I had one hour to put everything together and to photograph it, so please bear with me! But let’s get back to this month’s special topic. As we saw many of you using flowers in various previous Urban Jungle Bloggers topics we thought let’s put those all-time favorites of us together and pair plants and flowers.
I am always fascinated by flower bloggers like my friend Elodie who know so many flowers and put the most beautiful bouquets together before they photograph them magically. Well I am more hands-on here in my approach and I somehow ended up with too many flowers for my humble abode, so I filled up quite a few vases and made a vignette on my coffee table, on my side table and on my bedroom sideboard. Oh and I got finally to use my new Unico vase from Kähler Design – I love its belly shape and the thick yellow glazing (judging by the number of pictures with the Unico vase, it seems to be my new favorite)!
The sunflowers were the first flowers I bought for the styling. I love their cheerful, bright and happy appearance – they seem to inherit a bit of the sun’s power and brighten up a home even on a gloomy day. Later I bought a bunch of mixed autumn flowers and some eucalyptus twigs as well as a few monstera leaves. I won’t tell you about the mess I created in my apartment while putting the blooms together – it was hilarious.
Well I will not blabber on about my plants and flowers here. Instead I will be now off reading your blogs and looking at all your wonderful Urban Jungle Bloggers stylings. And yes, I am going to share it with the community. Right away. Thank you and have a green and bloomy day!
