Flowers in Real Simple July 2011

Hello flower friends!
Nicolette did a flower story in the July issue of Real Simple. The gorgeous photos are by the extraordinary Martyn Thompson. There are some really lovely photos* and lots of arranging tips. You can check out the article here or be sure to grab one at the newsstand!
Hope you are surviving the heat!

*this mostly green arrangement is my favorite. there are endless possibilities with all green arrangements. have you ever made an arrangement with all greens?


  1. Great article! And I love all foliage arrangements - there are so many wonderful textures and colors when it comes to greens!

  2. beautiful!! i feel like i've gotten into the habit of using less greens and too many flowers lately; this is inspiring me

  3. Great article---very straightforward and easy to understand instructions! I too am a HUGE fan of all green arrangements. Really. Why can't one have a "face leaf"? Thought I'd experiment w/philodendron, fern, bells of Ireland, bear grass, maybe some green hydrangea. We'll see what happens...

  4. GREAT blog! it is so interesting and inspirational! if you get the chance to check out mine, I would love to see what you think of it!:)

  5. Just discovered the blog! Thank you for the article, learning something about flower arrangement is one pending project for me... This "green" one looks natural and lovely.
