Ready to get started?

This is a time of bounty, so you’ll have a vast variety of colors to choose from. Search out the deep, rich color tones of berries, grapes, plums, pomegranates, apples, pears and artichokes to use in your bouquet.

Compliment your fruits with flowers and leaves in multiple textures.

Selecting flowers that are in a variety of shapes and sizes will make for a more appealing visual display.

Grab some greenery too.  You can go fragrant with some seeded eucalyptus or some herbs. Olive branches are great for a dusty green touch and can add height.

All that’s left is picking out an understated and classic lined: pot, vase, urn, or bowl.

Have on hand floral foam, floral picks, tape and wire.

Now get to creating. Company is coming!
Carolyne-RoehmTIPS & TRICKS: When creating a centerpiece arrangement for a dining table keep in mind not to block the view of the person sitting across the table.  Table arrangements should be below eye level so they can be enjoyed as much as the company of your guests.
Happy Creating!

Fruit Infused Water

Here’s another easy way to stay healthy, hydrated, and cool this summer!
Fruit infused water is one of my favorite escapes.

IMG_4684There are so many different combinations! From berries, citrus, cucumber and herbs!
You really can’t go wrong with this one.

IMG_4655Today I chose to use some lemons, strawberries and blueberries!

  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1 dozen strawberries, sliced

Mix together in a tall glass or mason jar and drink immediately, or chill for 2-4 hours for additional flavoring.


Sit back, relax, and enjoy a lazy summers day!
