Easy and Elegant Vignette with Hydrangeas

Good Monday morning!  Yesterday, while walking into the grocery store, these gorgeous hydrangeas almost knocked me off my feet.  I have never seen this rare version of the “antique green” hydrangeas in a grocery store…a huge find!! I was so excited to feature them in a special place in our house!

You probably cannot tell from this photo, but they are literally the size of my head!  I am not exaggerating one bit.  The pink tips are simply stunning and are so unique.  The most incredible part of this find is that I only paid $5.00 for the pair of these.  Shocking…I know!!

Tropical Flower Arrangement Made with Daisies

I don’t know about you, but I just love daisies.  There are so many varieties and colors that make them a very popular flower.  Gerbers are my favorite so I love working with them.  This past weekend, we celebrated our daughter’s 16th birthday with a family dinner.  I created this arrangement for the buffet in our dining room to coordinate with the tropically themed table setting for our dinner.

Creating a Simple Tropical Summer Table Setting

Hi friends!  This past weekend, we celebrated our daughter’s 16th birthday.  It has been my dream for all of her life to throw her a huge “Sweet 16” party when the time came, but this was not what she wanted.  Instead, we have several fun events planned with her different “friend groups” over the next couple of weeks.  She did agree to let me have fun with the table setting for our family dinner that we had the night of her birthday though and surprisingly did get involved in choosing the colors and theme for that celebration.  We settled on a colorful, simple tropical themed summer table setting.  Oh, happy day!
