I know I’m in good company in my love of this calla because it was the most requested calla by my brides and clients over the years…

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! So glad you stopped by today…

Which would you choose?

I’m loving your responses to this post each week! Thanks so much for playing along and giving great insight into your choices. Last week we had a very close finish between these two bouquets…

holly chapple


…in fact, the finish was so close that I’m not even sure which one you picked so we’ll call it a tie!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Meet you back here on Monday with more flowers…

Happy Thanksgiving


What I’m thankful for today…

  • the love and support I receive every day from my amazing husband and children
  • the laughter in our house
  • our health
  • God’s grace
  • friends who understand me
  • and, of course, the readers who keep this blog fun and interesting for me with their comments each day

Hope ya’ll have a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Something about the Hitched Maids shop that I spotted on The Full Bouquet appeals to me and I think it’s the beautiful array of colors so perfectly displayed in the quaint space…

Don’t forget to have fun while you’re preparing for Thanksgiving (I’m mainly talking to myself!)…I might tend to get stressed over all the details that go into getting ready for the holiday…

Happy Wednesday!
