Celebrating a year in flowers with a round up of DIY floral arrangements and seasonal centerpiece inspiration. You’ll find flower longevity tips, short cuts and techniques to create affordable arrangements using grocery store and garden flowers.
Happy January, I hope your holidays were merry and bright! I’m enjoying visiting with my sister this week and it’s been fun to catch up and relax by the twinkling lights of the tree after a busy December.
I have the pleasure of joining my Monday Morning Blooms friends, Shirley, Pam and Lidy, on the first and third Mondays every month. I always look forward to some flower therapy on those Mondays as helps my creativity *bloom*, even if I find myself scrambling to find flowers! I hope you’re up for some flower therapy too, as I share a look back at a year in flowers with highlights from the months and seasons.
