How to Style and care for the Amaryllis

styling the amarylis

The amaryllis is one of the most chic and stylish flowers. It comes in different colours: white, red, yellow, pink, salmon, purple, orange and bi-coloured. There are usually four to six imposing flowers on the stem and no foliage. That's why they sometimes call the Amaryllis the 'Naked Lady' in the United States. What makes it so special is that it blooms so beautifully. The different flowers open dramatically, looking different each day, and once open add sophistication to any space. There are … [Read more...]

A Christmas Tablescape with a Floral Theme

Floral Christmas table setting

  Last week I showed you my floral themed gift wrapping tips and floral themed Christmas decorations. The only thing lacking was my dinner table. Naturally the table scape fits in my theme and color palette as well namely, rose copper, terracotta and blush pinks. I created a centerpiece in a cake turban.

  Yesterday I already revealed this year's theme for Christmas. Each year I carefully think of a theme and a colour scheme and I use that in everything; from the decorations, to the gift wrapping and the advent calendar. You might remember my Audrey Hepburn Christmas moodboards, dessert table and Christmas decor incl the Audrey wreath and gift wrapping. So first I start with the (1) colour scheme plus a metallic. This year I opted for copper rose, blush pink, marsala, burgundy, … [Read more...]

Christmas Gift Wrapping with Flowers

gift wrapping with flowers - 30s Magazine

Flowers are the universal gift of friendship and love. But when it comes to Christmas, the colorful luxuries of life are often restricted to flower bulbs or the amaryllis in our decor. I, on the other hand, love to create seasonal bouquets, also during Christmas time. Last year for example I blogged about a winter floral arrangement and how to deck the halls with flowers. And a few weeks ago I also touched upon the subject of styling your orchids for Christmas. But even a bunch of pastel roses … [Read more...]
