Lilac Love

This morning Soda (My dog) was my partner in crime ... We stole some pretty lilacs during our daily bike ride. I love this time of year when lilacs are blooming. Their smell is refreshing and it gives me a warm feeling. I love putting them on my bathroom and bedroom for a touch of prettiness and beautiful smell.









I made a small sassy lilac arrangement for my building care taker since she does such a good job .

Orchids for My Fridge

As per usual I got lost in the flower section of my local grocery store and I found a great deal on a stem of yellow/green orchids. The stem was beautiful and had about 20 orchids for only $7.99. I couldn't leave without it. It was the perfect size for my fridge vase.



Originally I put the full stem in the vase with dried curly willow but the stem was too heavy. I left it hanging for a few days but later the top started to droop and it didn't look as good anymore. So I had a great idea to steal some of its flowers and break it up into more sassy arrangements. I removed eight flowers from the stem, some from the top and some from the bottom to keep the big stem even. With the eight stand alone flowers I created these cute little sassy arrangements. They look super cute on my kitchen island.

Pink and Orange Lilies

Bright colored flowers can turn the mood in any room into fun and fresh. It's a great way to brighten up dark spaces. Here is a very simple arrangement that can brighten your day or home.





This sassy arrangement is made up of a brightly colored pink and orange lilies. They are very pretty and sassy. It also contains green trick, baby's breath and a few strips of grass. The vase is simple short drinking glass.














These lilies also look great on their own  on a small vase with some grass to sass them up.

Tiny Green Orchids. My favorite!

One of my favorite orchids is the tiny green and purple cymbidium. I buy bunches of it all the time because green is my favorite color and orchids are my favorite flower. I also love the purple highlights. The flowers come in a stem and I usually use the full stem in arrangements. As they get older the flowers start to fall off that's when I create my tiny little arrangements to put around the house. I love these flowers  because I usually get three weeks worth of arrangements and I get to have variety since I reuse them when they are old. They still looks super beautiful off the stem and can last up to a week like this.

Enjoy!
Combined with cordyline rosebud leaves the purple in the green orchids really pops out.  This is one of my very favorite little sassy arrangements I've ever made. They are super cute, elegant and they fit anywhere in the house. 


I also have a few little white cymbidiums that fell of their stem. I paired these with the cordyline and some grass and put them in a shot glass (anything can be a vase, you just need some imagination)

Here you can see the vivid green of the orchids. I so love these so much. I put them in my tiny little cube featured in  cute cube post from July 23th 2012.








The cute cube is perfect for tiny sassy arrangements. It is 2 inches tall and wide and can be found at chive.ca (not to be confused with The Chive)

Would you have guessed this was shot glass if I hadn't told you?

I love this shot.



For scale purpose. It's way tinier than it looks in the pictures. Super cute and Sassy.
