Thème de Couleur …Floral Friday

There are times when a very simple, overall color theme is desired with floral arrangements.  An eye catching, pleasant look is accomplished by harmonizing all of the elements of the arrangment, especially if one closely matches those elements.  I decided to indulge this technique for today’s offering with some simple expressions to inspire your own creative efforts.

A smokey green-brown Fenton swung vase provides grounding for the slightly lighter shade of green-brown of the stems of dried buds.  This is simply a study of shape and form to engage the mind.


A light-hearted, whimsical approach happened spontaneously with the yellow, vintage USA Pottery turtle and blooms of a lighter tint.  The streaks of light pink do not detract from the main color idea.


An assertive, bold blue statement is made with this antique Roseville, two-handled vase.  The darker blue blooms bring out the rich, matte glaze of the pottery.  The shapes are simple and formal.


A more complex combination of shapes come together with a duo -toned creation.  The 1950s, boxy Shawnee planter’s rich pink color is echoed in the pink notes of the light green flowers.  The result is a vibrant, contemporary look.

What is a single color you wish to explore?
