VALENTINE'S | GALENTINE'S FLORAL CRAFT ALRESCO
This Valentine's is fast approaching and I would like to share a darling craft with you. I used the Blue Hydrangeas tablecloth for this project and the pink hydrangeas go here perfectly!
Start by getting some wine glasses (you can find them at the dollar store along with the doilies), turn one upside down and draw a circle around it. Then cut out the paper circle, draw a heart and place it inside the wine glass. All you have to do is insert the flowers inside and style them on top of the table, enjoy!
"Just living is not enough...one much have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."
~ Hans Christian Andersen
FLORAL ABUNDANCE IN MY GARDEN
In early Spring a profusion of hydrangea blossoms in lilac and pink start to form!
Gather some flowers from your garden.
Fill a basket with fresh-cut stems to adorn your tablescape and gift friends the wine glass with the blooms at the end of the lunch so they can take it home.
How darling is that look? Your guests will be delighted, they will love these floral beauties!
TIP FOR FLOWERS TO LAST LONGER
If you add one tablespoon of bleach and one tablespoon of sugar your flowers will last almost one month as long as they are in room temperature (on the cool side) and to ensure that, change the water and clip the ends diagonally.
You can draw hearts for Valentines on the doilies. For St. Patricks you can put a little clover in there etc, love this so much! This idea is perfect for indoors or outdoors.
When Mother Nature blesses you with an overabundance of beautiful flowers, I make a list of who will be getting these delightful blooms before they get spots on them! If I keep cutting them, they will keep on blooming until November!
You can find peace in flowers with these soothing and tranquil colors, such as blues, lavenders and pale pinks that you see here. Flowers are also symbols of friendship, love and affection. Just by looking at them, one feels joy and more relaxed.
My pup Chloe sometimes pops up in my pictures, lol!
