  • I’m actually really excited about this one. I was at a different store this day, helping out while someone is on vacation, and found this cute vase. It’s two pieces. In the bottom cylinder part I used that pretty black and silver ribbon and looped it around, then added some rose petals until it was nearly full. Then I put the other piece back into the top and made a matching arrangement in that part. It took me forever to get it looking exactly the way I wanted it to.

  • For some reason there was a lone pink gladiolus stem laying around, so I cut it down a bit and added some bear grass in a bud vase.

  • We were low on flowers to make arrangements with, but we had a bunch of scrap flowers laying around that we’d saved from otherwise dead arrangements. There were five sunflowers and they happened to fit together perfectly to make this one work. I added some loops of bear grass to make it more interesting. :) I normally have problems making anything that looks nice with sunflowers, so I was and am really proud of this one.

  • I plucked a leaf off of a hanging ivy plant we have for sale and used it on this swan arrangement. I like how it looks hanging off the back like that.

  • Pretty butterfly decorations we got in. They’re made from feathers and they look really nice added on to potted plants or flower arrangements.

  • I don’t know who sings this song, but it’s stuck in my head…

    Haru haru; Springtime in my heart; Springtime in my heart:
    Sakura, sakura, 
    yayoi no sora wa 
    Miwatasu kagiri 
    Kasumi ka kumo ka 
    Nioizo Izuru 
    Izaya, izaya, 
    Mi ni yukan. 
    Blossom, blossom; Haru ga kita, Haru ga kita: 
    Sakura, sakura 
    Cherry blossoms April brings 
    Up against the clear blue sky 
    Mist-like petals gently sigh 
    Fill the air with signs of spring
    Come with me, come with me 
    See the sweet cherry trees bloom. 
    Sakura, sakura, 
    yayoi no sora wa 
    Miwatasu kagiri. 
    Kasumi ka kumo ka 
    Nioizo Izuru 
    Izaya, izaya, 
    Mi ni yukan.

  • This is a smaller vase than the previous one. The insert was an awkward size, though, so we didn’t have any candles that would fit in it. I made a mini arrangement instead.

  • There are enhanced gerbera daisies floating in water, then there’s a separate insert with a candle in it. I was tempted to buy it myself, but it was a little bit more expensive than I could justify spending on a random arrangement, haha.

    Sometimes our balloons come in packaging. The packaging you see above with the little blue dog is one of our regular balloons. I was going to blow this up for a display, but upon opening it I was very confused. Inside was a “Feliz Cumpleaños” balloon that was only similar to the expected balloon by being yellow and having other random colors on it. It made me laugh, so I took these pictures, haha.
