Floral Friday - a flower arrangement

A flower arrangement for this month's Floral Friday (seriously, it has been the best excuse for buying flowers!).
I had spotted some lovely kale 'roses' at the supermarket and thought it would make for an interesting focal flower for my arrangement. I didn't want to spend money on anything else so when I got home, I just went about the garden and cut some flowers and foliage to jazz it up.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and it was a fun thing to do. And now I want to do more flower arrangements! I'm thinking a floristry course when the boy is older?

Do you have a flower arrangement you'd like to showcase? Link up below and be sure to check out everyone else's links!

Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along next time, please email me for next month's theme.

That's a pretty cool rose you got there!

It is indeed the perfect excuse to buy flowers, but to have flowers in your house is great anyway! :]

OH, what a BEAUTIFUL arrangement, Trishie♡♡♡ I'd never come up with the idea the way you did like in the last picture(*^_^*) Gorgeous and I love the color coordination as well with the wooden table.
BTY, I agree that 'the best excuse for buying flowers':-) And I love the phrase you used 'jazz it up'.

I hope you will have a wonderful coming weekend.

Hi Trishie - I agree with everyone else, such a beautiful arrangement and such a stunning flower. I am so sorry but I got the title of this month's Floral Friday a little bit wrong. I couldn't find your original email and I thought it was "In a Vase"! At least it's close. x

It's stunning Trishie and so resourceful!

The colour of that kale is amazing and the blue eyed daisy is the perfect foil.

Thank you for hosting this fun blog hop Trishie!

Hi Trishie, you did a beautiful bouquet there. And that cabbage rose, I thought that was just an ornamental cabbage, didn't really think of adding it to make an arrangement. I learnt something new. I would love to participate in your next blog hop party.
Thank you for letting me link in. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
Aida
