2021 Floral Landscape (Part 2)

2021 Floral Landscape (Part 2)

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Today is the second part of my 2021 Floral Landscape design along with some helpful information I’ve learned along the way.  Normally I plant and then wait a year to blog about it since perennials and shrubs take awhile to bloom and spread out but this year I couldn’t wait.  Our goal was to finish our shed and start on the landscape around the shed (more to see next year) which we accomplished but I’ve had a few people ask me about deer resistant plants.  In this...

2021 Floral Landscape

Happy Monday everyone!  I couldn’t wait to share this post because it’s bright and cheerful and that was the outdoor look I was going for this year!  Here is my 2021 Floral Landscape and backyard bliss with colors blooming from spring to fall!  When we bought our house, we were fortunate to have the landscape done around the house but I was also blessed with almost an acre of great space to do what I wanted with.  So I set out to do something every year and build on my ideas for a lush yard....

Spring Tablescape

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It’s a beautiful week to put together a spring table!  The sun is shining and it’s 80 degrees here in WV!  I’ve decided to plant another herb garden this year (see my 1st herb garden last year) and I’m going bigger this year so wish me luck!  This table is a combination of dinnerware I’ve had and have used in previous tablescapes.  These herb and floral dishes are made of bamboo which make them safe to eat on, environmentally safe, easy to clean, and can be put in...

Easter Tablescape 2021

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m so excited to show you my Easter Tablescape this year.  I combined the dishes and cone sculptures from my New Year’s Eve Tablescape with items from last year’s Easter Tablescape I put together and created a new table for Easter 2021.  I changed out the old napkins for these from TJMaxx for a silkier, shinier look to match the plates from Home Goods.  There are several pictures all with different lighting taken at different times of the day.  The sun rises in...
