Flower DIY

So have you ever arrived home with a huge bunch of flowers and then couldn’t decide how to arrange them? I recently bought not a bunch but just one stem of kale and came home and played around with different options. I love the look of kale, beautiful ornamental leaves resembling a rose but with a more modern feel. The only problem with kale is that after a few days it starts smelling, it is part of the cabbage family after all! So which display do you like best? A, b,c or d?

    I also bought myself a kale plant recently with deep purples + pinks but love the bleached creams + greens of this one too! I'm going to go with b. for that 'B'eautiful 'B'elljar, although I do love the muted tones in d. xo

    All of them are wonderful, but A really adds a pop of color with the magazines and B is so unique. Also, I never would have thought of Kale as a item to put in a vase, but it looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚
