SHABBY CHIC ROSES.
There is no bloom more beautiful from bud to fallen petals than the rose.
My favourite roses are the pale pink and cream ones that have a hint of green to them. They look utterly gorgeous against the pale blue/grey of my walls.
I love to rearrange them throughout their faded beauty starting with a gorgeous vintage vase for maximum wow factor, and then when they start to fade I like to snip them short and display them in different bud vases and old bottles.
Lastly when their romantic heads start to flop I snip them off from the stem and strew them across tables and mantle pieces, or gather them onto a cake stand so I can continue to enjoy the faded beauty of them.
When they are dried out I like to thread them together with needle and cotton to make a pretty garland.
