Hey there! I hope everyone’s weeks are off to a good start! Sorry for my absence, we had a pretty crazy awesome weekend celebrating our anniversary at a Bryan Adams concert in Raleigh. Seeing Bryan live was one of my bucket list items so I was especially excited. I love having a husband that likes making my dreams come true.
Unfortunately, after the concert I ended up pulling a muscle in my back, so I’ve been laid up for the past few days. Since I’m not exactly up and about I figured I would share a project that I didn’t post about a few weeks ago, my Passover table. This table was definitely one of my favorite settings ever, mostly because it featured my favorite flowers: tulips. This table setting was thrown together at the last minute because I spent the day of Passover at a funeral for a very close family friend (part of the personal stuff I’ve referenced last week). When I came home I wanted a cheery task to distract me, so I bought some tulips and got to work. I already had some yellow and pink faux tulips on hand, so I chose pink and yellow for the real flowers to match. I also had some pink and white striped napkins on hand from my birthday in January, which added some extra color and to compliment the faux flower garnish. I also loved having my green bowls from Ballard Design to complete the look of my table. They are fun and a super great quality. Plus they also compliment my green stemless wine glasses! Even though a put this table setting together super quickly, I think it’s one of my Passover favorites. You can’t go wrong with pink, green and tulips! Speaking of tulips, the reason I had those faux tulips on hand is because I used them to make a simple spring wreath for the front door. It was April and I still had a snowflake wreath on the front door. Totally home decor slacker over here. This wreath was super easy to put together, like ridiculously easy. I simply took a few of the faux tulips and stuck them into a grapevine wreath. Seriously, that easy. The only tricky part was getting the spacing correct, but it wasn’t that much trouble. I love coming home everyday to this cheerful springy wreath. It always puts a bit of a smile on my face, even when I’m sad (or crippled). I think it’s important to make sure that you never stop letting the little things make you smile. Life is always going to be busy, full of disappointments, sad at times, stressful and just plain unfair, but if you let the little things keep you smiling it all seems bearable. So what are your favorite flowers? Do you use them a lot in your spring decor? I also love hydrangeas, but those don’t bloom until closer to the summer. I’m anxiously awaiting that time of year!
