Spring Faux Floral Event

Did anyone realize I have been absent? :) 

A few short weeks ago I  faced reality and told myself I must have my Spring Open House before Easter.  That meant I was facing creating approximately 100 arrangements to place “for sale” in my house turned store.



Of course we think of spring from March until at least mid May but honestly….the cute little bunnies and arrangements hiding little eggs and  Oh!   the bird’s nest are so appealing before Easter.



There were tulips in red, green, yellow and orange and roses and calla lilies and so much more!


An old coffee dispenser no longer working turned into a perfect container for vivid green hydrangeas, red snapdragons, raspberries and lots of fun stuff!



There were running bunnies for sale like I recently featured on a Tablescape Thursday.

and wreaths and topiary moss trees ~~~




Yummy green Belles of Ireland contrasting with rich, deep purple pansies in a metal garden pot



Don’t like silk flowers?  How about some ceramic, shiny green apples?

They were very popular along with the little cloches holding itsy Gerber daisies while others showed off nests.



It was a fast paced three day show.  Lots of talking with customers and many good friends helping me run the shop. 



The long, rectangular garden pot with pansies, green berries, drippy grass and a nest was voted

Best of Show

by Moi!

It did sell the first night.  It was one of my favorites that I put together.




I hope you enjoyed your tour of my Spring Show!  I hope to be back posting again but my computer is soooo slow !  It takes forever.  I think it’s time for a new computer. 



The weather actually feels like Spring!  I think we actually made it through the winter like no other!

Thank you for stopping by 47th Street today!!

All your floral arrangements are beautiful~! Love that garden box arrangement. African violets remind me so much of my grandmother.
