DIY Floral Arrangement

Happy Monday All! Fall is officially here, but it's still hot in Florida. I found myself daydreaming over the weekend about what it would be like to see the seasons change. And how neat is would be to pick Fall flowers from the garden, and make beautiful DIY arrangements. Since I live in Central Florida, the likely hood of seeing the seasons change and picking fall flowers is slim to none. Oh well, so much for daydreaming. Any who I decided I wanted to create a floral arrangement using flowers that were blooming in my own yard. So I grabbed my sneakers and a pair of shears and headed outside.


And here's what I came up with. Pine Cone Ginger, Tricolor Ginger, Asparagus Fern and  Palm Fronds. Since floral design is not one of my strengths I decided to keep the arrangement simple.

 
I started out by placing the Tricolor Ginger in each corner of the vase, but I immediately came up with what I thought was a better idea. So.....


I took the Pine Cone Ginger from the vase, and wrapped the inside with the Tricolor Ginger. Once that was done, I placed the Pine Cone Ginger back in the vase as before.
 

 
Next, I added more Tricolor Ginger, Palm Fronds and Asparagus Fern to complete the arrangement.
 
 
 So what do you think?  
 

Have you created any floral arrangements lately?
 
Thanks for stopping by!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
