I am one of those people who loves having fresh flowers around the house. It changes my whole mood. I normally just pick up a $5 bouquet from Trader Joes and put a couple of mason jars around the house with a few stems. My favorite flowers to have around are tulips and hydrangeas. But it’s not always practical to have fresh ones on a daily basis. While at Target last week, I spotted two little spring “pick-me-ups” as I like to call them to have on hand! They won’t die on me, and when I come home with fresh ones, I can put these off to the side. I love the periwinkle blue color with the green in my dining room. At least the apple is real!
And I couldn’t leave this cute little orchid vase at the store all by itself. It needed a cozy home as well right next to my green elephant.
This weekend we are throwing our first ever beer tasting party. It just sounded like fun! Relaxed and low key. We’ve been a bit emotional around here lately so spending time with good friends is just what the doctor ordered. I will be back next week to share the deets and any tips I learn along the way in case you are up for throwing one as well.
Each guest will have a beer tasting glass with their initial on it. I used little squares of chalkboard vinyl I made. That’s all I will share for now . . . a couple of my guests are sweet enough to pop in on this little blog of mine every now and again so I don’t want to share all of my secrets just yet!
