Pink Flowers

I had planned on posting photos of my pink flower arrangements before Easter, but I ran out of time!  However, I do think pink flowers are perfect for spring occasions such as a baby shower or Mother’s Day {which is coming up on May 9, 2010}.  In fact, I’m sure there are many Moms and Grandmas who would really appreciate a Teacup Tablescape.

Once again I raided the thrift store — where teacups are abundant — and found these lovely cups from Laurel China….but you know me…I had to glam them up a bit so a little bling was in order.

Thanks to adhesive jewels {from Michaels} these vintage teacups now have a contemporary touch.  I then arranged three roses in each teacup, and Viola!

The second design {below} is just a fun, casual mix of seasonal pinks:  snapdragons, tulips and more roses.

My vase is another thrift store find.  Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice more jewels.

If you’ve ever perused the ‘jewelry making’ aisle at the craft store I’m sure you’ve seen an array of beautiful beads and gems.  These items really can turn a centerpiece from ordinary to extraordinary.  Even subtle jewels can add interest and catch your guests’ attention.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my centerpieces this spring.  If you use any of these ideas or come up with your own, I’d love to hear from you and share your creations with Color Sizzle readers!

{One last photo of my office which was overtaken by flowers for several days.  My oldest son, who has allergies, was sneezing like crazy — poor thing.  Oh, how my family puts up with me!}
