This week THURSDAY FLOWERS brings you something a little different.
Class wasn't on this week so I decided to do some arranging of my own doing something different to what we normally do.
It all began as I did the weekly grocery shop and saw Asparagus on special for $1 a bunch.
I HAD TO BUY THEM .......and lots of them !
I have this beautiful photo on my Pinterest page where the clever artist has combined roses, asparagus and other blooms in one very pretty arrangement. I have been longing to make this arrangement so the special on asparagus was a perfect opportunity to do so.
White roses were as cheap as chips at $5 a bunch so I grabbed a couple of bunches of those as well.
I teamed these with a pretty pale pink roses from the florist and it was time to start work on my creation.
I didn't want it to be exactly like the design in the photo that I admired. I always do my own thing when it comes to creating. Trying to painstakingly copy off another persons work seems very time consuming and very boring. Half the fun is making something unique and whatever comes from your mind.
As it turned out I was 4 asparagus spears short from completing my 'rose cake'.
mmmmmmmm what to do ????
Until ! (this where the fun kicked in) I decided to pretend that a slice of cake had been cut and roses were spilling out from inside it!
and my game of pretend turned out beautifully !
Would anybody like a slice ?
and what's a cake without a candle !
(below)Looks like one of the Asparagus is standing out of line.
"Straighten up soldier !"
I will definitely make another one of my new found cake creations again.
Wouldn't it be perfect as a centrepiece for a special birthday party ?
As a matter of fact......
I know that a very special bloggy friend of mine is having a birthday next week. (Yes I did know it was your birthday!)
Happy Birthday Andrea from THE COTTAGE MARKET
this birthday flower cake is just for you !
. Love and hugs to you my sweet friend xo
Sorry I haven't been around much this week. I have been unwell with a bug and needed some time out. Hopefully I will be on the mend very soon.
