I am proud to present the finished product. I am now a regular contributor to the Simply the Sweet Life magazine–an opportunity I am really excited about. The other contributors and editors are so talented and did a wonderful job on the spring issue. Check out the magazine here:
I can’t wait to see the final results in the magazine. I actually ended up doing three smaller arrangements and a little tutorial. The Spring issue will be available on our website, the ISSUU app, in print through MagCloud and on the Kindle!! Join us for the release party!
Monday, May 2nd at 7pm MST for tips, chatting and some amazing giveaways!
Today I had the opportunity to arrange flowers for the cover of the spring issue of Simply the Sweet Life Magazine. It was a little last-minute but I think it turned out well. I used honeysuckle pink snapdragons, white freesia, purple waxflower, and assorted ranunculus. It was springy and wild flower-esq. I can’t wait to see the results and show you the results. Many thanks to Season Atwater who did the photography and the editor of the magazine April Atwater for the wonderful opportunity!
I think flowers are such a romantic gift. They aren’t practical or really useful, but they are so thoughtful. When I have flowers in my house, I smile every time I look at them. My husband asked me if he had to get me flowers this year since I have my own business or if I would like to just make my own. Maybe this isn’t that romantic but I opted to make my own. Making arrangements makes me just as happy as having them in my house all week. I had some friends’ husbands ask me to do flowers for their wives for Valentines and I was more than happy to. Here are the very Valentinesy results:
In these arrangements: Pink Ranunculus, Red and White Tulips, Alstroemeria, Seeded Eucalyptus
Maybe this bouquet is a little too “springy” for late January/early February. Maybe I am ready for spring. Maybe we all need a reminder that winter will end sooner or later….and if it decides to sick around for six more weeks, maybe flowers like this will brighten the dark cloudy days. On that note, Phil predicted an early Spring—Hallelujah!
In this arrangement: Blue Hydrangea, Yellow Alstroemeria, Pink and Purple Tulips
My hubby’s grandma lives up the street from us here in Salt Lake and her brother passed away so she asked me to do an arrangement for the service. The only request for this bouquet was that it be somewhat masculine. Since flowers aren’t usually masculine, I interpret that as not pink and purple. I don’t normally use a lot of hydrangea but the blue was perfect for this arrangement, and the orange ranunculus give a nice pop of bright color.
