Done in Duplicate

And here is the final product; you can click on the photo for a larger view. The brass pot arrangement will stay with me, while the arrangement in the pedestal vase is destined to go elsewhere. I am really pleased with how they turned out. I also learned quite a bit while making these, so it's win-win all around.

The arrangement was adapted from a Real Life one, changed a little to be suitable in miniature. It's meant to evoke Spring, and I think it does that.

I am now going to waste my time watching television rubbish for a while....


  1. Hi Marijke. I just finished visiting your previous post on how you make the pussy willow branches and now that I see how FABULOUS they and the Forsythia stems look with the roses and iris, I don't know how you could bear to be parted from either of them!
    Two Very Beautiful Spring bouquets :D


  2. Gorgeous, Marijke! Just gorgeous! I can hardly wait to see them in person! - Marilyn D., Oromocto, NB

  3. Unos arreglos florales preciosos:-)

  4. Your bouquets are gorgeous!!! They really look just like professional florist bouquets!!!

  5. Thank you all! Your kind comments have encouraged me to keep on trying to make more "fancy" bouquets. This one was, in fact, based on a Real Life bouquet, adapted a bit to suit the miniature version.
