Preppy Flowers

As you've probably figured out (unless you've been living under a dumpster for the past few months) I love flowers. Love to grow them, love to arrange them, love to buy them! One of my favorite color combinations is pink and green. I've had pink roses on the brain this week, as I have 65 table arrangements to do for the Annual Pink Ribbon Gathering for Breast Cancer Awareness that is held in my town each year. It's a huge event that draws up to 700 women each year. So, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite pink and green arrangements from years past...















Now, these are not all arrangements that I have done. Some of them are ideas I've taken from florist websites. That's a great way to get ideas. All of them, however, are easy arrangements that you could do yourself at home. Great places to purchase flowers include Fresh Market, Kroger, florists and outdoor markets. Give it a try! You'll be surprised how easy it is after you get the hang of it.

Those are great, and I believe you are quite mistaken that I could do this! I am crafty, artistic, etc. but have NO talent when it comes to floral arranging! You do a fabulous job though. Have fun doing the 65 arrangements!

Those are all beautiful. I love to arrange flowers too, but always second guess myself and think it looks crappy when I do it. Looks like you do a wonderful job though!!!
