I got flowers for Valentine’s Day!!!

I’m always hard-pressed when I get flowers to make a decision as to what to do with them?  Put them in a vase and enjoy their fresh beauty??????  or……………chop their heads off and preserve them so I can have them forever.  Honestly?  I’m more inclined to do the latter.

If your flowers and the sentiment behind them really tug at your heart strings……then I would suggest that you do the same.  When in doubt…Preserve!

Something to think about.

Blessings,

Are you thinking ahead about preserving your bridal bouquet?

Here is what usually happens.  The bride spends a year preparing for the big day.  And then……….the day finally arrives.  The florist brings her the bouquet and now she’s in love!  At the end of the evening she shoves the flowers in her mom’s hands and says “find someone who will save this for me!”  Mom is freaking out on Monday after the wedding because she’s been left with the daunting task  of finding someone to save her daughters’ bridal bouquet while said daughter is off on the honeymoon.  Why wait til chaos sets in?  You know you’re going to fall in love with your flowers – find someone ahead of time and let your mother relax!!!

Blessings,
