My Summer Flower Arrangements

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!

Calla Lilies Prom Corsages

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.

Enjoy!

Love is in the Air! Valentine Flower Edition

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!
