Being deep in winter at the moment has not dampened our creativity one bit. We are embracing the concept of “hygge” (meaning cosiness in Danish) to the fullest by taking comfort in good winter food and getting inspired by the winter landscape.
Styling wise, the brighter colours of warmer days have been replaced by a deeper, warming tones of pink and purple. At the moment, there are varieties of ornamental kales, dahlias, chrysanthemum and early arrivals of tulips and imported peony roses to choose from!
Exhibit A – Lili’s local dahlias, sweet peas and Lilly pilly berries. The softness of purple pink shade pairs beautifully with the white fragile sweet peas.
Exhibit B – Anh’s purple chrysanthemum and calycina heather. The double pink purple tones work nicely, especially in the warm candlelight.
We like to have our floral arrangement simple and wild - let the flowers look best in their natural form. And similarly to food, we like to play with texture. Use a combination of foliage and flowers with different size and shapes in colour palette theme of your choice. And always allows the flowers to sit above the foliage as that the focal points of your arrangement.
