For Week Thirty-Seven of the Bouquet-a-Week Project I went to the Pike Place Market hoping to find a “Dahlias Only” bouquet to see how much I could do with a limited number of blossoms.
I was lucky, for at the very first farm stand in the Main Arcade, I found a bucket of small dahlia bouquets priced at $5. I chose the one below, mainly because of the gorgeous center bloom with its flirty white-and-red color combination.
The $5 bouquet looked pretty gorgeous when “painted” in Waterlogue.
Here are the eight dahlias and purple statice laid in a row.
And “painted” in Waterlogue.
Here are several of the dahlias and some purple statice in a celadon Asian vase.
And two red dahlias in a Buddha vase backlighted in green.
And here are this week’s small bouquets. I will admit that some of the flowers are leftovers from Week Thirty-Seven but they still look gorgeous.
And here are this week’s three small bouquets.
Although made up of leftovers from Week Thirty-Seven, these purple flowers look dramatic in a clear glass vase.
