This past weekend I visited a craft store, Flower Factory, that is going out of business here. I wanted to add some color to my home and love tulips. The bunches of tulips were very inexpensive so I purchased 6 of them. I already had 3 square glass containers at home that would be perfect vases from Target. It is important to keep in mind that more is better when getting a lush look.

I then measured the length of the stem to match the depth of the vase and cut all stems the same length. Then I placed a leaf inside the vase to see the length needed to cover inside wall and base. I proceeded to then cut all leaves the same length. Next, I used a glue gun to secure the leaves to the inside of each vase. Finally, I placed the flowers in each vase to give it a full, lush look. For these vases I used 12 tulips.

These little flower arrangement can be used anywhere whether at home on shelves or on cocktail tables at an event. I hope you enjoyed this project and leave a comment to let me know what your favorite flowers are.

For Valentine’s Day this year I chose to start a card exchange for Royal Events by Melissa and also participate in an exchange by Ever So Lovely. Below is one of the designs I created. I will follow up in a couple weeks and showcase the designs of other participants. What is your favorite romantic movie or quote? I still love “Love & Basketball” and quoting Monica: “I’ve been in love with you since I was eleven, and it won’t go away.”

This is the first year that I participated in the annual Southern Weddings magazine Christmas Ornament Swap. I wanted something simple, classic, and elegant to reflect Royal Events by Melissa, but that could still be personalized.

As you see I purchased miniature frames from Target, crystal embellishments from Archiver’s, white ribbon and doves and Flower Factory. I removed the wings from the dove as they were the closest thing I could find that resembled angle wings. I then hot glued them to the back of the frame. On the front of the frame I added a crystal embellishment to add sparkle. Then I tied white satin ribbon to the frame to hang from the tree.  You can then add any picture you like and you have your own personal Christmas Angel Frame.

I made an extra ornament for one special reader. To enter the contest please leave a comment below. You may receive additional entries by:
