I know, I know… it’s only the 3rd of February even
I just can’t help that I am already starting to think about Spring.
Thinking about flowers and gardening and working on the outdoor projects I have planned
About dinners under the stars and evenings next to the fire outside on the back patio
Cut roses last a long time in Winter~ which makes them a fantastic choice for several posts
if it is warm in the house. I used some roses from a bouquet from from last week and added a couple $4 bunches of pale spray roses and a purple stock/daisy mix
I was planning to place the little bouquets in various spots
and indulged my
side with a flower covered mantel for Valentines day.
Since it’s Valentines month ~ I think February is a perfect month to indulge that side.
and for a little over $20~ the mantel was dressed in blooms
I love the simpleness of the shades of whites and pitchers
with the vibrant colors of the flowers
My boxwood wreath from Christmas is on the mirror yet…
but I love boxwood anytime of the year
and the darker green looks wonderful with the flowers
and really makes it feel so much more like Spring.
Since the flowers will start to dry out within the next week or so
I know that I will be redoing the mantel soon
that’s how it is when using fresh flowers~ and especially since this look
was achieved mainly with just flowers and nothing else.
I’m just enjoying it’s romantic look for now
and it does feel like a breath of Spring when you walk into the room.
and they are planning a football party with a few friends
Which basically means that there will be a lot of yelling at the TV
Hope your weekend is going great!
