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.

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! Good bye cold windy days, welcome sunny warm days. Today at our Nation’s capital its 80 degrees. I am placing a Mayday basket in your inbox in the form of a URL. Click on the URL and this link takes you to our Nation’s Capital, filled with blossoms and monuments. Hope you have a fantastic day. Enjoy!

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.

Forsythia and Daffodils – Elegant Easter eggs and birds nest tablescape.

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!

I clipped few branches for my spring arrangement. Due to unseasonably cold conditions most of the blossoms were killed.

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. DSC_0186

I have placed few Daffodils in a Watering Can. Daisy and Bella had to see what was in the Watering Can.

I filled the container with M&M, inserted a small plastic cup (cup must be smaller than your vase) and twisted till the M&M covered the sides of the plastic cup and the cup is not visible. Carefully pour the cold water into the cup,then insert flowers into the cup.

Easter trees and spring decorations!

Now for some indoor decorations! I created a variation of spring and Easter trees!

I created a blue and white tree by using a small Grand Handle Urn covered in moss as a base and Tulip Poplar branches as the ‘tree’. I adorned the tree with DIY Styrofoam eggs. I used chalk paint to create vibrant blue eggs and stark white branches. The overall look is both colorful and muted by the matte finish.

My Precious Antique tree

Now onto my favorite tree, the Easter tree! It’s very special to me and I use it in almost all of my Easter decorations. I picked it up from MJ Designs (this was a craft store back in the 90’s) with my girls and we’ve decorated it each year. It has a bit of minor wear and tear but the memories attached to it are precious and priceless – I guess you can call it an antique! I  decorated the antique tree with silk eggs, simple and sweet.
