Petal / Green Thumb

green1

This summer, I was convinced I wanted to be a gardner.  I did it too.  I grew kale, arugula, lettuces, strawberries, peas and beans.  I thoroughly enjoyed picking my bounty and whipping up healthy dinners.  Now that the weather has turned, I still want that green around me.  I am just loving plants in every room of the house.  Doesn’t a punch of green instantly change the feel or a room?

Seeing it Everywhere / Decorate with Leaves

One of the most affordable ways to create fall decor is to use what we have.  I have a lawn.  My lawn has trees on it.  Thus I have free decor right outside my doorstep.  It can be as simple as putting a branch in a pretty vase or going one step further and painting or hanging the foliage you find.

Petal / My Favorite Yellow Flower

As I previously mentioned, I have a minor major obsession with the color yellow.  It got me thinking about how a lot of my favorite flowers are also yellow.  When I was little my dad used to call me his sunflower so naturally sunflowers were my favorite.

They are tall, bright and have a lot of personality.

Now one of my favorites are Craspedia.  They are simple, petal-less, and long lasting.

They are fast becoming popular wedding flowers because of their modern shape and husband-friendly appeal.

What do you think about more modern flowers?  Could they become as classic a wedding flower as roses or are they now “flowery” enough?

Petal / Multiple Vases

I’m a collector.  I collect Revlon nail polish, greeting cards, stationary, big rings and vases.  I also collect small vases.  I have a collection of milk glass vases and a collection of blue glass vases I have had since I was a teenager.  I love the look of lots of vases clustered together with flowers.  The punch of multiple smaller vases can be just as impactful in a room as one giant vase and it is so much cheaper!  Take a look at what I mean:
