Here they are! My final Valentine’s day flower creations. I hope these flowers arrangements inspires you to create one for that someone special. Just remember, inexpensive flowers doesn’t have to look cheap!
Yes, I am going to say it again, Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is just days away so gear up for some simple budget friendly flower arrangements that will sure to win many hearts! Nothing says love like beautiful flowers!
Valentine’s Day also hold a special place within my heart. I was married on Valentine’s day and about to hit my 14 years wedding anniversary on 02-14-18. Everyone keeps telling me how lucky I am to have gotten married on Valentine’s Day because it prevents my hubby from forgetting our wedding anniversary! LOL! Yes, that’s the good part but the bad part is that flowers are so expensive during this time. So after many years of receiving overpriced flower arrangements on my wedding anniversary, I decided to turn a new leaf and experimented with making my own flower arrangements using flowers purchased from my local grocery stores. Rose Chic Flowers was born and the rest is now ancient history.
Enjoy and spread the love one flower arrangement at a time! You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
SIMPLE AND ELEGANT HEART SHAPE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
Flowers: I normally use roses within most all my arrangements but because the price of roses double in price around Valentine’s Day, I decided substitute roses with carnations. All flowers were purchased from Krogers in Plano, Texas.
1 bundle Burgundy carnations – Arrangement #1
1 bundle White carnations – Arrangement #2
1 stem of Hot pink alstroemerias per arrangement
Glass heart shape vase (Dollar Tree in the candle aisle)
1/3 block of wet floral foam (I bought in bulk from Amazon)
Aspidistra leaf ribbon (I bought from Amazon but can these ribbons can be found at Micheal’s)
Here’s my final 2017 Holiday flower arrangement and my first 2018 flower arrangement both using my flowers in a box theme. I thought I would save time by combining both flower designs into 1 blog by ending 2017 with the start of 2018. One thing I do love doing is using bold and vibrate colors flowers within my flower creations. All flowers were purchased from my local Krogers within the Dallas, TX area and the photo boxes were purchased from Hobby Lobby.

I hoped you all had an awesome 2017 Christmas holiday! Here are more of my 2017 Holiday/Christmas flower arrangements. All flowers were purchased from my local Krogers within the Dallas, Texas area. The project cost for all arrangements added up to around $100 dollars with some of the flowers purchased as half price. I think that’s pretty awesome for 6 flower arrangements.

The most charming, faithful, forgiving and caring person you will ever meet, is your MOTHER. Never miss a chance to say a big thank you to her! She is the reason you live and the reason to feel safe and happy. There’s no better way to show her how much you love her by giving her flowers.
Mother’s Day is the busiest holiday for me! Lots of flower requests from friends and flower gifts to make for my son’s school. I hope you enjoy these flower arrangements and get inspire to create one for a special someone out there! Enjoy!
This is my first time ever making gifts for Teachers Appreciation Day. Since my son attends 2 different schools, Pre-K in the morning and Montessori at noon, I had 2 groups of Teachers Appreciation gifts to create within the same week! I ponder a bit on what to make trying to stay within budget. Then I saw these cutes boxes at Dollar Tree and thought it would be nice to make a mini version of my Flower in a Box design.
So here they are! All flowers were purchased at my local Krogers in Wylie and Plano, TX, the rosemary from my flowerbed, and the grey preserved moss from Hobby Lobby. The cost came out around $7 per arrangement.

Yes, I’m 4 months late on posting this. Lunar New Year 2017 has come and gone! Better late than never!
Tet as my family would call this awesome holiday comes by once a year marking the start of a new year. 2017 is year of the Rooster/Chicken. How do know if you are a Rooster? If you were just born or turning 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72…keep adding 12… then 2017 is your lucky year. Your Zodiac animal repeats every 12 years.
SOME FACTS ABOUT LUNAR NEW YEAR
The most important social and economic holiday through out all Asian countries. This holiday is even more important than Christmas.
Lunar New Year (Chinese New Years or Spring Festival) is marked by visits to family and friends, special meals, fireworks, and gift giving.
This holiday is a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting.
Elders will give out money to children in little red envelopes called lai see for good fortune. In fact, many of the rites carried out during this period were meant to bring good luck to the household and long life to the family, particularly to the parents.
The entire house should be cleaned before New Year’s Day. On New Year’s Eve, all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans and other cleaning equipment are put away. Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year’s Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away.
My flower design inspiration for this post was inspired by this wonderful event called Tet (Lunar/Chinese’s New Year).
Traditionally during the 3 days of Tet/Lunar New Year, I am suppose to bring a large serving platter consisting of various food/treats to my relative’s house for the gathering, but this year I am bring flowers. Who doesn’t love a beautiful fresh flower arrangement! Enjoy and Happy Lunar New Year!
