Yes, I said Amnesia!

Certain colors and flowers are so fun for me to use! These Roses are called “Amnesia”, hence the title of the Blog! A dusty lavender color that adds such a vintage elegance, I can’t resist them! When they are added to white flowers, for instance in a bridal bouquet….. WOW! Okay, now even I can tell I am a dork! But on a serious note, mixed with white flowers they create a great feeling. I will have to create a bouquet with them to show you!

Here they are used in multiple ways. Compact, stylized, and parallel designs show them as the star and as the accent. First we will start with compact arrangements. A mix of Pink Lilies, green button mums, orchids, hydrangea, and textural foliage. The gray dish is banded with a pink-orange ribbon to bring the color down. The bright flowers bring a cheerful and modern feel to the vintage look of the gray dish and dusty amnesia roses.

An obvious companion for the dusty lavender colored roses are the bright purple dendrobium orchids (other one of my favorites in the purple color story). The two are paired with misty blue create a biedermeier arrangement for the purple loving person! This style of arrangement is making a strong come back! Well, at least I want it to and will try to make it come back! The silver container brings the dusty color out!

The same types of flowers are arranged in a parallel design. The horse tail is bend to add height and still create a transparent look. This would be great for a centerpiece! (or look awesome in my house!)

The last two are slightly different. Both are forms of stylized arrangements; fun, funky and eye catching. The first is shown in a short glass cylinder. The reeds are woven into a basket design and used as an armature to hold the flowers in the hand tied bouquet that is then dropped into the vase.

Second, the roses are added to gerbera daisies and iris to create a spring arrangement. Once again the silver container is used and brings out such a different look for the roses!

As you can tell I love these roses and there are so many ways to use them!
