Sweet Juliet

isabelleolikierOctober 5, 2009

Today my friend celebrates her birthday; so I brought her this morning a bunch (or do you also say bouquet ?)with autumn roses because here, in Belgium, roses are coming to the end of season.

Made with Sweet Juliet Roses (Austin), sweet peas, eupatorium rugosum Chocolate and calamagrostis brachytrica.

Very scented, sorry you cannot enjoy.

What a AWESOME birthday gift, I'm sure your friend is enjoying her bouquet very much. She is so fortunate to have such a thoughtful friend as yourself.

Those are gorgeous Isabelle. I've seen some nice pictures of Sweet Juliet. Austin has a floral rose called Juliet and I'm wondering if they are related as they have somewhat similar coloring. Austins floral roses are to die for and Sweet Juliet somewhat reminds me of his floral rose Juliet. He also has a floral rose called Darcy that resembles Darcy Bussell and Ellen which somewhat resembles Ellen.

That is a beautifully arranged bouquet! I love how you combined the different colors, textures and shapes of the flowers, leaves and grasses, very well done.

I am wondering if you are a professional flower arranger, or if you have taken flower arrangement classes or if you have simply a natural talent for flower arranging? Wish I could do something like that, too...

Thanks for posting!

Hi Christina,

I am not a pro at all and I'v never taken classes.
I just LOVE roses and I think that some combinations are nice (brown foliage with yellow roses, sweet peas and roses...)... have a look at my other bouquets in my blog's albums.
I never buy any flower, just pick up what is in the garden at the moment.

Absolutely gorgeous, Isabelle, you certainly have a natural talent. You seem to have such a feeling for what will create a harmonious combination of colors and shapes.

I hope you continue to post more lovely pictures.
