Spring Blooms.

I might be a little on the early side with my spring floral post, but the fact that the groundhog bit the mayor this year makes me think that he might not be quite as credible as everyone seems to think- I mean who decided that a rodent should be the one who gets to predict when spring comes anyway?! I am getting my house ready now in hopes of an early spring! Here are the blooms that I am putting in my house this spring to brighten things up!

1. All White!

I LOVE how fresh and bright these lovely whites are! They go great on a coffee table, in a kitchen, or even on a nightstand! Very versatile! And it even has fake water in the bottom so it is totally puppy or childproof! It was made with what I can only assume is a white peony. But this same style would be absolutely lovely with white tulips (probably my next addition!).

2. Fresh Blush Tones!

This is an arrangement I made from florals at Ben Franklin’s. I basically picked a color theme (pinks!) and went into the store and picked out a bunch of flowers with different sizes and textures. When I got home, I picked at them for a bit to get them into an arrangement I liked (I used a triangle pattern with the blush colored roses). I popped them into an oversized mason jar and vwa-la- Super simple and romantic!IMG_8751IMG_8741

3 . Brights!

Spring wouldn’t be spring without some bright pops of color! I adore these fuschia peonies because they are so large that you really only need to buy 4 or 5 (depending on your vase size) to fill a vase. Very economical and will bring that bright pop to any room! Goes great on a desk or other small table! And it would look dashing with yellow tulips or sunflowers if you are not a pink person!

All photos were taken by me!

Merry and Bright!

“May your days be merry and bright!” Christmas is in full swing around here! We put up our decorations and now there is nothing better than sitting in the living room with a heavy knit throw, a toasty fire in the fireplace, and lights, lights, lights! The cold weather makes me crave nummy cocoa and of course, turkey with the fixins’!

Ahhhh… The holidays! 🙂 I took all of these photos in my house! The big turkey, mashed tatoes, stuffing, and green bean casserole we made after Thanksgiving because we just couldn’t get enough! This was actually my first time making a turkey and Ryley’s first time carving one!

“And may all your Christmases be white!”
