Ok, I have expanded my hobby from florals to gardening for the past 2 years. I can’t say that there are not major challenges such as the Texas heat and them wicked garden pests. For some reason, I seem to have all of them! Here is my 1st post on the main page about my garden.

I grew up my entire life in the South and would not have it any other way. I was fortunate enough have grown up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, 1 hour east of New Orleans surrounded by a beautiful beach, an Air Force base (opportunity to meet people from all walks of life) and the best seafood in the South. Nothing beats southern hospitality with a touch of modern charm.
These elegant mini arrangements are very inexpensive to create. My entire cost for all 7 arrangements was around $25 excluding the free thyme, rosemary & oregano from my garden. So no excuses on creating a beautiful and inexpensive arrangement for that someone special! Enjoy!

Summer in Texas this year has been excruciating! The temperature has been in the 3 digits for months. My attempt to grow a flower garden has failed due to the heat and lack of rain. But on the bright side, I was able to get my herb garden started and will start blogging about it on Herbs, Garden & more page. CLICK HERE to check it out.
Even with the downfall of my flower garden this Summer, I was still able to make some awesome arrangements using grocery stores flowers. Enjoy!
It’s prom season and what even better are beautiful elongated corsages made with calla lilies purchased from my local Tom Thumb grocery store. Lilies are in season which also make these corsages budget friendly. This is my second time making corsages since most of my creations are flower arrangements. I created these 2 corsages for a co-worker who had requested some special corsages for her son’s prom date and military ball date.
Since this was my second time making corsages, there are bound to be some complications. I had gotten a little worried when both corsages came out a little longer in length than I had envisioned. I originally had imagined 6-8 inches but both corsages came to about 10-12″ in length. But even at 10-12″ long, these corsages still manage to stay put onto the corsage slap bracelet holder. It all worked out in the end and both corsages were well loved by 2 special young ladies.
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!
