OK, I understand
This week we welcome the lovely Melanie Stapleton from floral studio Cecilia Fox! Melanie is bringing us the most beautiful guest blog this week full of all things botanical - flowers, plants, gardening and everything in-between. Enjoy! - Jenny x
Hello, I am Melanie from Cecilia Fox, a little flower studio tucked away in a corner of Brunswick. At Cecilia Fox mostly we design and style flowers and all things organic. So when I am not fashioning flowers for events or filling houses or restaurants or stores with beautiful blooms... I'm either at yoga or in my garden. This week I want to give you a peek into my world of flowers and plants, offering a little inspiration and some ideas about how to bring some nature into your life!
Now, a good basic glass vase is always useful, but why not put flowers in any old thing that will hold water? I love with an old teapot overflowing with blooms, or a recycled olive oil tin brimming with olive branches! Lucy King, fellow guest blogger, is all over it with her gorgeous plants in tea cups and recycled kitchenwares! So the key is, if it holds water... even just a little bit... do it!!
Using seasonal flowers is so satisfying - I'm going crazy for Snowball Vibernum, Dogwood and the very underrated Solomon's Seal. Not to forget herbs and succulents! There are no rules, so get a little bit crazy - everyone is a florist just like everyone can sing and everyone can dance!
All the photos are by my wonderful friend Lindsey. Take a look at her blog, she really is very clever!
