a little creativity. . .

So, I finally attempted my first project from Pinterest! I've seen lots that I'd love to try at some point, but this one caught my eye a few weeks ago and I was determined to try it out for our Easter lunch centerpieces! My mom always buys floral arrangements for special holidays, but I knew my parents were just going to be getting back into town before Easter, so I thought I'd give it a whirl! It was really pretty easy, minus the bow tying, and I think I loved them all the more, because I made them! Found some vases, some burlap, which I cut down to size, some ribbon, flowers and limes and voila! My parents have a big dining room table, so I made 2 smaller vases and 1 big vase for the center! In the first picture, I hadn't added the sliced limes yet, but I did slice limes and added them to the vases. Loved the extra touch it gave! Also, the pin I found on Pinterest used daffodils, but since I couldn't find any, I thought these worked just as well!





If I ever get to making more Pinterest projects, I'll share again! Anything you are making from Pinterest?

Thank you again for the beautiful flowers and for taking time to make the arrangements. So very helpful and very pretty.

I just love your blog (especially the pictures!) I made an Italian dressing that was supposed to taste just like Olive Garden's dressing (who could resist right?) but unfortunately it under-delivered :(
