I have been enjoying all of the fresh flowers that you have been sharing lately.
Very nice fresh cut flowers...Thank you ;0)
As we all are trying to create a breath of an early Spring into our hearts & our homes.
I have purchased a bouquet of fresh cut flowers recently specifically for their size & colour.
Fresh cut flowers to match my decor...purple carnations, lavender-pink freesia,
raspberry gerberas & asiatic lilies...
Usually I don't match my fresh cut flowers to my decor but this time I was working on a decor theme in our home.
My inner granny chic style...my colour palette for this look is consisting of indigo blues, turquoise, purple, raspberry, red, yellow & a touch of pink...whew (sigh) a lot of colour ;0)
Try your own water colour, you need:
A bouquet of fresh cut flowers, a clear glass vase, a box of club house food colour.
Preparation of your fresh cut flowers:
Always start with a clean washed vase, unwrap your flowers immediately when you arrive home.
Give a fresh cut to all of the stems before placing them in your vase.
Don't ever tear a flower stem if you do re-cut the stem with a clean sharp knife or clean flower scissors. Some hardwood stems are okay to be torn but all of the soft flesh flower stems need to be cut on an angle ( / ) with a clean sharp knife.
Fill your glass vase 3/4 of the way with clean warm water.
Apply drops of food colouring into the water.
(for mine it was 6 big drops of the blue out of my club house food colour box)
For intense colour add more drops, the less intense colour add less drops.
Stir after adding your food colour drops...until well blended.
You can experiment with the intensity of colour by starting out with half of the water in the vase and start adding your drops of food colour one at a time to the desired intensity. If it is too dark this is when you just add more clean water to change the vibrancy of the water colour...
These flowers won't absorb the food colour from the water.

What water colour would you choose?
Would you match your room decor or use your favourite colour perhaps?
What would be your choice?
Let me know...
All the Best,
