Hello Dear Readers!
It’s that time again for another fabulous
Monday Morning Blooms,
when I, along with my wonderful flower loving friends,
Lidy, Mary and Pam present some ever so pretty
You can see their beautiful floral creations
with our common theme of Valentine’s Day
at the end of this post.
So sit back, grab your favorite beverage,
enjoy and hopefully get inspired for
your upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration.
Welcome to my Romantic Valentine Flowers and Sweets.
My inspiration for this Valentine’s Day Table
of Flowers and Sweets was the beautiful
handprinted urn that I acquired from
Amy. It’s Lenwile China, Ardalt ~ Japan.
The flowers that I chose for this
Valentine’s Day Flower Arrangement are:
Blush Stock Roses
and Seeded Eucalyptus for filler
I love using tulips in my arrangements
as they have that beautiful
I love this urn as each side
has different scenes.
I began creating this arrangement
by placing the snapdragons in first.
Starting at the center to get height
that I wanted and formed a pyramid
type shape with the remainder of
the snapdragons. I worked my way down
from there alternating flowers.
Since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday
this year, I may just plan for a
quiet evening with the family.
As I was shopping at Trader Joe’s
for flowers, I found this really cute
heart shaped cake. Perfect for two!
I took a small salad/bread plate
and placed it on a brass candlestick
to create a petite footed cake plate.
I was able to get some really great
Baldwin brass candlesticks at a friend’s
estate sale, as my candlesticks are in
the “storage abyss”.
The heart shaped jelly beans are also from Trader Joe’s.
Definitely a one-stop shop that day!
I love to have beautiful flowers
on this coffee table
as I can see it being in the
great room, or the kitchen,
the breakfast area and the dining room.
That’s the advantage for having
an open concept plan. I am looking forward
to our new home with an open concept;
however, I will miss wall space!
Hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day
Flower Arrangement and sweet treats table.
I prepared/shopped and created this
in-between directing various contractors
on some final decisions.
It took a full day to give the electricians
guidance on hanging 13 hanging fixtures!
Hopefully I can give you an update soon
when I am able to take photos without
lots of large boxes and stuff on the floor!
This is the dining room chandelier.
It was the only room that the floor
wasn’t covered in boxes and packing material!
