I have wonderfully creative and open friends. One of them recently asked me to make 12 rainbow inspired flowers for her window sill.
Chakra Energy Centres
I thought I would link it to the chakra system (as she’s also wonderfully spiritual like me) and came up with the idea for a bunch of flowers using the colours that correspond to each chakra:
- Red for the root
- Orange for the Sacrum
- Yellow for Solar Plexus
- Green for Heart
- Turquoise for Throat
- Indigo for the Third Eye
- Violet for the Crown
It also meant I could try out a few new flowers I have been really keen to try, in particular a freesia and a protea (also known as a sugarbush flower). My friend has just returned from Iceland and coincidentally (or serendipitously) I came across the most amazing looking flower, an Icelandic Poppy – so I thought I’d add one of those as well!
The 12 flowers I designed are as follows:
- Red peony and Icelandic poppy
- Orange protea and rose
- Yellow peony and rose
- Green succulent and chrysanthemum
- Blue peony and crysthanemum
- Indigo and violet freesia
- Indigo and violet peony
In the end the final bouquet is stunning (even though I say so myself) and luckily my lovely friend agrees.
