Happy St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! To help celebrate and decorate, I have put together tabletop decorations and projects for the whole family. Few cabbage plates are displayed, a Leprechaun hat that is filled with green apple jelly beans, that will knock your socks off. It’s hard to keep grownups and kids off the jelly beans. Hope you enjoy my post as much as I did while creating it.

Happy Mother’s Day!

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.

IMG_20180511_213513 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. DSC_0625

A simple coat of blue chalk paint turned this box into a beautiful wood-look-alike container. DSC_0632

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. DSC_0627.JPG

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!

Hip hip hooray,May is here!

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.

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.

Thanks for stopping by. Please like the page and leave a message. have a fantastic week!

Spring in Washington DC

Spring in Washington DC!

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.
