Vintage Bike Floral Display

I survived Valentines as a florist... well barely, I've been sick for the last 4 days...
But other than that it was a fun and wild ride!!

Speaking of rides...

I pulled my vintage bike out of the garden, cleaned it up and brought in as a display piece.
What do you think?



We Zipped tied the basket and the flower cans on.


Set it atop some floral crates covered in moss 


And then filled it full of flowers...
To be honest I had imagined it a bit different....
I had planed on making the perfect arrangement...just for the basket...full of flowers and trailing jasmine but we plain and simple ran out of time. 



For the window we keep it simple, using pink and white chalk markers we drew a 
tree for the bike to sit under....It looked it's best at night when it was dark out.

We also decorated a mannequin...buts that's another day.

For today, well....I'm out of time.

I will hopefully be linking up to some of the parties in my side bar...do check them out!

  3. I love bicycles with baskets of flowers. In fact, my Instagram post for yesterday was of my husband's old beach cruiser and the basket filled with flowers.

    thanks for sharing at SYC.

    1. Ya...What is it about bikes and flowers that make us happy? Maybe it reminds us of childhood, simpler days and sunshine. Of course I road a horse not a bike but we would load them up with wild rhododendrons when the were in full bloom...what a goofy kid I was!!

      Anyway thanks for stopping by!

  4. I just love that you used zip ties. I never would have thought of that. I've got old bikes and I SO want to do this also. Best wishes, linda @Crafts a la mode

    1. Zip ties are the best!! You can pull them good and hard and they will hold tight to anything...my husband uses them on the race car. :)
      Thanks for visiting!
