Today is Bouquet Day

The bouquet today was inspired by the runner that I was given on the weekend by my friend Angie from Echoes of Laughter when we met up for breakfast (more about that later). The cheery material with pinks and reds and greens is designed by Anna Maria Horton.  Her work is new to me, but boy was I intrigued when I had a look at her blog.  She is one talented woman who designs fabrics and other handicrafts all the while raising six children.

I chose bright pink and red flowers from the garden and put them in turquoise vases to match the cheery colours of the runner.  The IKEA vases were from the table decorations at our son's wedding a few years ago and are very well designed to help the flowers stand upright.

It's a bouquet that looks bright and happy which is a good thing on a dull and rainy weekend.
