Another shipment of mostly spring silk flowers arrived. It is definitely getting me motivated to start creating.
Pretty soon the flowers will begin moving fast and furious through my hands as I prepare for my Spring show at the end of this month.
Look at these sweet Spring berries, all pink and green.
This boxwood works well in so many arrangements. Often times I cut it apart.
Maggie tried very hard to stay interested in what was inside Box Number Three but she couldn’t resist snuggling up in the noisy paper. She was asleep inside here til I walked up with my camera to catch her in the act of Cuteness!
Oh Lookie Here
Pink Japanese Magnolia Branches
I do believe they look like something from the pages of Pottery Barn for sure.
Before I begin creating for my potential Spring customers there was another arrangement that needed my attention.
White footed container found at Goodwill. Love it!
I am on the decorating committee at our church….and of course own the title of the Altar Flowers person. There are some Sundays when no one signs up to donate fresh flowers. We were in need of a new faux arrangement to bring out for those flowerless Sundays.
Step by Step you are watching the act of a faux arrangement coming together.
Let’s get some more color going on.
I LOVE these beautiful deep orangey red roses. They are called a Confederate rose.
Let’s add another…
The song leaders aren’t happy if I get my arrangements too big. They say they can’t see. So I must limit the size. (They always try to ruin my fun!)
We are almost there…just a little filler flower and seed stem for texture…
Don’t mind the background mess. There is almost no place to take a picture without something around me in my crazy, fun workroom.
There you have it
I will live with it a couple of days, walking past it, studying it.
Looking to see if anything needs to be changed.
If any of you have a difficult time finding quality faux stems in your area, stay tuned. I am considering opening an Etsy Shop with stems, a few accessories and smaller arrangements. Input?
Thanks for stopping by 47th Street!
