#Pinterest Find of the Day: #Spring Tulip Centerpiece #Easter

This pin by Diane Bockus is stunning! What a beautiful idea for Spring/Easter Decor that will last! This is one of the prettiest silk arrangements that I have seen….using faux tulips & moss in a vintage basket with decorative easter eggs! This will be so easy to recreate! Make it one of your floral centerpieces this Spring for your Easter gatherings!!! Diane has some consistently great pins over on Pinterest as well! Follow her boards!

Party Inspiration: Ice Cream Soiree!!

I haven’t been on Hostess with the Mostest in a while but, I just checked it out and found this beautiful Ice Cream Party Theme that would be a great for a birthday.. but, I think I like it even better for a baby shower (especially with all of the pastels)! The theme is by Just Call Me Martha! The Ice Cream Cone Cake and the Ice Cream Float flower arrangements are definitely the highlights for me!!!

Marie Antoinette #Birthday #Party Theme!!

Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette was a very visually pleasing movie…and I have to say it is really the only movie I ever liked Kirsten Dunst in. This Party theme featured on Occasions Online could mirror the movie decor! It is so gorgeous and charming + I love the photo of the girls in their ‘royal best’! They have a nice little blog article written along with the photos of this visual treat! This is a party theme that I look forward to recreating in the future!

#Spring Forward with these beautiful floral arrangements! #DIY

As a florist I am always looking for new inspiration which usually has me on Pinterest and browsing blogs all across the internet! Here are the top 5 flower arrangements that I would recommend making your table centerpiece this Spring!!!

#1 Tin Can Floral Arrangements

Any florist will tell you that what really sets off a flower arrangement is it’s vessel! In this instance the Wedding Chicks have put together an array of photos of floral arrangements in vintage tins! I stumble across vintage tins at thrift stores and during flea market/yard sale season all of the time! Achieving this look will not be hard to do!!! This particular can is filled with anemones!

#2 Floral Arrangements in Mason Jars!

I am a HUGE HUGE fan of mason jars in general! I love to collect them! This is also an item I find at thrift stores, flea markets, & yard sales! The perfect vessel for this type of arrangement is the coveted blue Bell mason jar! Blue really sets off any color of flower! Tie some twine or burlap around the jar for a country chic look!! I found this pin by Anna H over on Pinterest!

#3 Cut Tulips are a Spring Must Do!

Cut Tulips are absolutely gorgeous!! They are my favorite Spring Cut Flower! I recommend getting them when the buds are tight! They will last for weeks until they finally open up! I love this arrangement I found over on Lauren Conrad’s blog! It looks difficult but, it is really easy to achieve this look. Find an wide vase, clear and of any color! Then get you three bunches of tulips in any colors that you want! Wrap the stems about 2 inches from the bottom with floral tape… and then secure a large leaf of greenery around the bottom of each bunch, over the floral tape! the heads of the tulips should hold all three bunches in place. 🙂

#4 Hydrangeas in a tall vase!

Hydrangeas are a floral arrangement staple from Spring to Summer! If you are lucky enough to have a Hydrangea bush in your yard then you can have a beautiful arrangement any time you would like! 🙂 Blue hydrangeas are my favorite for arrangements. The only problem with hydrangeas is it is hard to get the best look unless you have a really tall vase! If you want to add other flowers in with your hydrangeas then fresh cut roses and cut alstromerias go very well with them!

#5 Raid a field! Your yard! The Side of the Road! 😉

I love wild flowers! I love dandelions, buttercups, forget-me-nots, daisies, & honeysuckles, etc! The thoughts of these takes me back to my childhood where I sat in the yard and tied together flower chains to wear around my neck! I found this over on Gardenista! Find you a small vase and pick those flowers!!!
