Festive Flowers for Cinco de Mayo

Festive Flowers for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is upon us and I've already consumed my yearly quota of Mexican Wedding Cookies, enchiladas and carnitas. So to distract myself from the deliciousness that is Mexican cuisine, I pulled together a festive flower arrangement. Using freshly cut roses from my parent's garden and a talavera pitcher from my wedding, these flowers are begging to sit next to a big skinny marg. 

Hydrangea and Tuberose Arrangement

Hydrangea and Tuberose Arrangement

Hydrangeas are good lookin' alone, but combined with a small bunch of tuberose before the blooms opened, they are even more lovely. The tuberose's green/pink color added a subtle punch of color and texture that breaks up the bright white and green leaves of hydrangeas. Some day I will line my backyard (imaginary for now) with these beauties.
