I have been jonesing for something to bring a little spring into my house, but it just hasn’t been in the budget. Specifically, I wanted to buy a nice silk flower arrangement, but at prices $30 and up for something half-decent looking, it just wasn’t happening.
So I said to myself yesterday, heck, I’m just going to do it myself. Armed with some b’day money, I went to Michael’s and found a sale on their spring silk flowers. I also found a flowerpot on clearance. I spent next to nothing, and I feel like it turned out okay. Certainly worth the savings.
I did work in a floral shop many years ago (1993), but I mostly did things like fill balloons with helium, make gift baskets and the like. I guess I did some simple floral arrangements, but they mostly consisted of a few roses and some sprigs of baby’s breath. Not exactly too complicated.
If I ever had the time/money, I’d like to take a floral arrangement class. I think that would be fun and maybe I could do it on the side to make a little extra $$. More
