In accordance with Mother’s day celebration, I want to wish every Mother a very, “Happy Blessed Mother’s Day”. This post is dedicated to all the creative moms. I want to especially thank my Mom, who is my support and mentor in every project I have created and will create.
For this year’s Mother’s Day, I have created a DIY flower box! The best part of this DIY is the fact this box is made out of 100% cardboard. You can use it and dispose the box when done. I found it in a pile of DVD boxes to be trashed at my office. I knew I could use it in some fashion to spruce up a room (and even set it out for an outdoor event) and just in time for Mother’s Day! The box has four compartments. I wanted to transform each compartment into little beauties to house my flower arrangement.
In each section, I used plastic DVD-disc containers to place my flower arrangement.
They were just the perfect size to fit into the individual compartments! Green Flora’s, ‘Wet Foam’ was the base to arrange the flowers, which included store brought roses and hydrangeas. Irises from my garden, the only plant that deer wont devour. Dogwood blossoms are to tall for them to reach.
A simple coat of blue chalk paint turned this box into a beautiful wood-look-alike container.
I normally use larger flowers and flower bunches as the base of my canvas and add in details with single flowers, in this case roses and irises.
If you don’t have time to make your own DIY, you can use everyday items in your home! It’s as simple as a great vase, flowers, and some delicious supporting actors. To achieve this look, I used a tall pitcher vase, a simple flower arrangement, and some yummy dessert!
I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did. Let me know what you think! Like my posts and make sure to leave me a message or send me questions. I love to hear from y’all!
Washington DC has many faces. Most of you have visited the nation’s Capital, even a few were lucky to see the Tidal basin where cherry blossoms live. During the autumn months the trees drop their leaves and take a long nap. The sun then warms up the land, Mother Nature wakes up and begins to dress her lifeless trees in soft pink blossoms. The blossoms open overnight. A beautiful pink hue covers the trees.
Magnolias at its best!

Enjoying beautiful sunny day!

The first outdoor event after the cold winter months, is the Spring Cherry blossom festival. Once the blossoms are opened, every day is a festival day for the natives and visitors. DC welcomes visitors from all over the world. This year we experienced unusual cold and windy weather that battered the precious cherry Blossoms. Despite this, the blossoms held strong. As the weather grew warmer, streaks of pink were seen before a full blush was attained.

When one thinks of Washington DC, what comes to mind? Monuments and memorials, famous buildings like the Pentagon, capital and the white house. Washington DC is a place unlike any other. It’s a home away from home with free museums, gardens, theaters, award-winning restaurants and more. DC hosts many festivals, concerts and galas, just to name a few. Let me take you to the Tidal Basin where the blossoms are in full bloom, if we are lucky we may see few water fouls.

Hope everyone had a nice Easter! Easter is a time of new beginnings and a renewal of life and hope. For most of us, Easter encompasses bunny rabbits, eggs, and spring but it is much more. Decorations and interior design are a great way to show transitions in seasons, especially when you have a holiday to help mark it!
The first blossom to catch one’s eye during this season of budding life is Forsythia and Daffodils. They are both so vibrant and colorful.
