  1. First of all, Happy Birthday Shirley! Wishing you health, happiness and lots of flowers in 2021! What fun to look back, so many beautiful arrangements and gorgeous blue and white as I scroll up and down. It’s so hard to choose a favorite but I have always been partial to those Peony Tulips…oh to have a Trader Joe’s nearby! Thank you for the beauty and flower therapy this past year. I look forward to more this coming year. ♥

  4. Happy, happy birthday to you! I hope your day is perfectly fabulous. Shirley, what a pleasure to scroll through all of your beautiful floral creations of the past year. Each one is gorgeous in your stunning new home. Last year was sometimes challenging when it came to finding flowers, but we survived it all. I look forward to this year’s MMB and for the inspiration that you share. Thanks for being our fearless leader ♥️

  5. Happy Birthday, Shirley! May you be blessed with good health and happy memories made in the coming year.
    I love the recap of all your beautiful flower arrangements. I am still enjoying my Lunch Creek centerpiece, no need to enter my name. Just want you to know how much I enjoy this series.

  6. Happy Birthday, Shirley! Enjoy your day!
    Every photo is gorgeous! What a feast for the eyes to view your lovely arrangements. I feel so blessed to enjoy all the inspiration.
    It is so much fun to look back.

    Happy Birthday Shirley! What a lovely year of floral memories. Thank you for the continued inspiration. I used your candy cane floral arrangement as inspiration when the flowers I got at Trader Joe’s looked similar. 😀 it’s also been a joy to see your lovely new home – every detail seems just right! My favorite flower is Hydrangea. Happy New Year!

  10. Wishing you a joy filled Happy Birthday! Your glowers were exactly the thing I needed to see to awaken hope in me,hope for civility ,peace,kindness to one another,cure for pandemic & for Science to be respected! Have a Blessed Day,Shirley🙏🏼🌷

  11. Happy, Happy Birthday Shirley! Wishing you a wonderful day and a year ahead filled with happiness and good health. Every month you featured is gorgeous in its own right but I have a great fondness for peonies so I would have to put the Peonies & Lenox as my #1 favorite followed by Januarys all white flowers with the beautiful orchid in the center.

    Anyone who grows peonies know they are slow growing flowers that take several years to get established well but once they do you will have a beautiful array of Spring flowers with the most gorgeous lush blooms for years to come! I currently have a beautiful bouquet of pale blush pink roses on my dining table. Kroger had a great sale on their bouquets this past weekend along with their orchids.

  12. Wishing you a wonderful day to celebrate your birthday, Shirley. May God bless you in the many years to come.

  13. Happy Birthday sweet Shirley. May this new year be so much better for you. It was wonderful this morning to see all your beautiful flowers from last year. It was a true brightspot in our days when you posted. Happy New Year and Have a wonderful birthday. xoxo

  14. Happy Birthday Shirley! Thank you for including us in your celebration with this wonderful round up of your gorgeous arrangements last year! I enjoy the Monday Morning Bloom posts so much, flowers make such a difference in our homes and in our outlooks! The floral spray sounds like magic! Happy New Year and I look forward to more of your beautiful arrangements in 2021!

  15. Shirley, I hope you have a riotously colorful birthday. Can’t believe that I am loving your two all white arrangements the best because I usually prefer tons of color, but that January arrangement with the orchids is just fabulous!

  16. Your arrangements are so beautiful! Such inspiration! I hope your birthday and the coming year, blesses you real big! Happy birthday!

  17. Happy Birthday! Yellow roses are my favorite flower!

  18. Nancy Pharr says

    Beautiful! Peony

  19. Happy Birthday Shirley..The flowers are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!

  20. Happy Birthday to you! I love any flower, especially those you arranged in blue and white containers.

  21. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday…on this bleak day ( literally and covidly) your post is a breath of fresh air and so joyful, thank you! My husband was a sales account executive with Hallmark for forty years and I have that Santa and his deer ( along with a gazillion other HM ornaments!) All your arrangements are so beautiful but I love the candy cane one.

  22. Nancy Brantley says

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHIRLEY! Wish you a Healthy Beautiful year. My favorite flower is the Sunflower. Your Winter Blues and March Green flower arrangements were GORGEOUS with that French blue armoire in background!!

    Shirley, these are so pretty, I really enjoyed seeing them, some I missed during the year, so I’m glad I got to see them all.
    And, how fun to see them altogether, you are very talented with your arrangements!

  26. My favorite flower is plumeria. Unfortunately, I rarely get to experience them anymore. When I used to travel to Hawaaii, I would always return with some.

  30. Happy Birthday Shirley! Wishing you blessed years ahead of great health, joy, blessings and lots of beautiful flowers. You have inspired us with all your many gorgeous arrangements all year long. I so look forward to another year filled with your sweet floral therapy, dear friend. xo Lidy.

    There are so many beautiful flowers out there, but my garden here in MI is filled with Daylilies and Peonies. The peonies have the most delicious fragrance and the Daylilies bloom from June until the end of August for me. There are many others I favor but these two are certainly my favs.

  32. Hi Shirley,

    You have such a gift for flower arranging. So many beautiful arrangement. My favorite flowers are hydrangeas and camellias.
