Teacher Appreciation day was on our horizon, and I wanted to do something special for my boys’ teachers. I always feel happier around flowers and thought it would also brighten the teachers’ days to have some lovely flowers. When I thought about the vase, I wanted to do something that was not only personalized with a monogram but also reflected the teachers’ favorite color of pink. Discover how to easily make these vases for someone special or keep it around to decorate your own home.
Why not try your hand at flower arranging so you can get professional results at home for a fraction of the cost. I have expensive taste in flowers so in order to indulge my need for luxurious flower arrangements, I knew I had to teach myself how to make these creations. I’d love to show you how to easily recreate gorgeous floral bouquets in your home.
It’s lime season at the Lam household which means lots of lime-aide, freshly squeezed lime to enhance our food, and yes, even limes in my flower arrangements! We have an AMAZING cocktail tree in the backyard. This tree has grafts of many citrus fruits in a single tree so you do not get a huge amount of each citrus when the season arrives. We get Meyer lemons, grapefruits, limes, and mandarin oranges all in one tree! Cool, right? If you live in a zone where you can grow citrus, I highly recommend this tree (I would say zone 7 or lower). Now for the flower arrangement; you could create this arrangement with Meyer lemons, fruits that are a little more cold hardy (would do ok in zone 8).
A friend was celebrating her daughter’s 1st birthday. Her vision was to create a garden full of cupcakes that reflected her color scheme. She had an array of pastel colors which included pale pink, violet, and white. She enlisted me to create flowers on top of her cupcakes. The cupcakes and all the other details of this party were so special!
Arrange your own flowers using one or two colors from your theme rather than purchasing a pre-made arrangement. For example, my flower choices for this party were hydrangeas and peonies in various shades of pink with white for contrast.
Have you ever heard of aeroponic gardening? What if I told you that you could garden and never have to pick a weed or dig in the dirt? You can say good bye to all the tedious weeding and messy soil if you learn how to garden using aeroponics! I place my Tower Garden right by my back door of my house. In those hot summer months, I can easily go outside and pick herbs or lettuce for my meals.
