Sorry for the delay in posting. Life happens! I will start posting new images of my flower design creations from last year starting where I have left off in October 2018. Try these flower ideas from using a bunch of mix flowers to flower topiary and flowers in a box. I hope you enjoy these flower inspirations and go out and make some for that special person in your life.
Fall is finally here in North Texas after 3.5 long months of 100+ degree weather! Fall color flowers are so awesome with bold shades of orange, yellow, and red. Gear up and create one for your upcoming Fall harvest event.
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!
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.

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.
