Pretty Spring table


First, I have to thank you all for helping me out with my dying succulents! What great suggestions y'all had for me. I can't wait to get a few more and try again. 

Now, on to this pretty spring table. After the Valentine's Dinner at Balsam Mountain Preserve, I had 16 flower arrangements to do something with, so they sat on my back porch all week. Luckily, it was cold, so they kept beautifully. I could not let them be wasted, so after sending a large arrangement to the owner and one to my mom, I rearranged a few of them and set a table in my dining room.

My succulents are begging for help.

 I love succulents. Even though they're "trendy" -- I still love them. And cacti. I have always had an affinity for cacti, and loved growing them when I went through my "Southwest" phase in the late 80s early 90s.

Boho winter dining and new Moroccan lanterns

I guess I should get right to this since we seem to have moved from what should have been winter right on into summer. Considering the fires and drought this fall, I hate to think about what summer might be like here.  But, like Scarlett O'Hara, I'll worry about that tomorrow and for now, we'll visit the *winter* dining room.

This is the arrangement I made for the owner after the dinner was over.

Christmas at Balsam Mountain Preserve

I wanted to share with you all some of my work at Balsam Mountain Preserve as I didn't get a chance before Christmas. Everything I did there, could easily translate into winter. I, for one, hate to see the beautiful warmth of Christmas decor go away and be replaced with nothing, or worse -- spring decor, so I like to incorporate lots of fresh greenery, candles and natural elements that keep a bare winter space looking warm and cozy through the winter months.
