Studio Window

So I totally over bought last weekend.  3 weddings and a couple of deliveries left me reaching for more and more at the market. Oh well, better to have more than less. It's really is such a challenge to buy and stay on budget! Feeling a little out of practice since the fall wedding season ended. The good news is I was able to put together a flower packed window display. My photos do not do it justice. I love love love it.
That's me waving hi!

So stunning. How do you make the tulips drape over the edge of the vase like that?

The window looks beautiful, so your leftovers were put to good use. I always find it difficult resisting those extra little bits at market!

Hello Lotta,
My tip for arranging tulips:

Stick in water while wrapped in paper for a least an hour. Strip leaves and then arrange in vase. After a day they will be sticking straight up. Remove and give a fresh clip. After another day they will start to fall over a bit. When the stems are pliable you can arrange in such a way that they will easily spill over the lip of your vase.
Took me a while to learn how to handle tulips. They have a mind of their own!

So gorgeous! It must be nice to have a window to the world to create displays in.

Beautiful window! When I see displays like yours, I wish I had a storefront shop to decorate. The roses look like Majolika (?)They are my favorite spray rose.

What a gorgeous window display! I would love to come visit your shop :-)

Ahhh, so pretty! Love the Tulip cascade:)

I always over buy too. It's much worse to not have enough than to cut a little into your profit margin . My worst nightmare is running our of flowers.
