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.

Dried hydrangeas to fill in bare spots and add fullness.

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!

Artist Spotlight: CoffeeTopia 

Today I am so excited to share with you two of my favorite things…coffee and artwork. I’ve been following this profile on Instagram of a man who goes by  @Coffeetopia, and he does something simply amazing and combines them both.      Isn’t this just the coolest thing?               I’m unsure if he sells his work, I’ve reached out via Facebook but have not heard back yet, so when I do I’ll let you know! I think it is just a really amazing hobby of his. Feel free to check out more of his pieces on his Instagram linked above, and while you’re at it follow @MocheLifestyle!  Hope you all have a fun and safe weekend!

Artist Spotlight: Lady Noel Designs

Let’s talk Instagram…

It still amazes me the way social media has grown and produced so many opportunities for the self employed out there, especially the artists/photographers/designers.

I could spend countless hours on Instagram hopping from page to page, scrolling through the popular feeds, looking for new inspiration. One of my favorite artists I follow is Lauren Noel, you can purchase and view the photos of her work below on her website.
