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.
Enjoy and stay tuned for my final Holiday arrangement for 2017!

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.

1 dozen of pink or various pink roses
1 bunches of purple alstroemeria
1 bunches of pink spray roses
All flowers purchased from my local Krogers in Wylie, TX
Kraft paper (I used some that I already own but have seen rolls of it at The Dollar Store within the packing and shipping aisle)
Twine or rubber bands for holding the flower bouquet together
Fall is finally here in Texas after months of 90-100 degree weather. Sorry, I have been absent from blogging since Mother’s Day. Just moved to a new house and still trying to get my new craft room into working order. To hold you over until my next flower creation, here’s another of my flowers in a box creation using beautiful Fall colors of oranges, reds and greens.
Please check back soon as shop will be reopened for the holidays! Due to popular demand, I will be creating a tutorial on how to create these wonderful arrangements and not have to spend a fortune.
Ok, so Mother’s Day is suppose to be my day of being appreciated as a mother but I find myself working harder during this day than any to other day! But that’s a good thing if it’s doing something I love.
Here’s where the magic happens at my flower shop!
Psyched that I finally received my stamp just in time for these Mother’s Day flower arrangements.
Below is a gallery of everything I have created for Mother’s Day. All flowers were purchased from Krogers and Tom Thumb. I hope this inspires you to make a beautiful arrangement for that special someone. Please enjoy!
