Vintage Easter

April 14, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Hello and Happy Good Friday everyone, I love anything vintage, especially when it comes to the holidays. I thought today we would take a look at vintage Easter images as we prepare to celebrate the biggest holiday of the Spring season. I can never quite put my finger on why I like anything vintage, I suppose it has something to do with memories, a lot of these things remind me of grandparents and great-grandparents. I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together today and have a very Happy Easter. Check back later this morning when I’ll share ideas of using Lilies in your Spring and Easter arrangements. Enjoy!!!

Spring Flowers ~ Delphiniums

April 13, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Today we are looking at Delphiniums or you may know them better as Larkspur, another tall flower to add height and drama to your arrangements. Yesterday we talked about Bells of Ireland, but unlike Bells that only come in green, Delphiniums come in a variety of bright, beautiful colors. To learn and see more on Delphiniums click here to see a post I did in July 2014. Enjoy!!!

Easter Tablescape Ideas

April 13, 2017

By Tab Byrum

This week kind of got away from me and I didn’t get the tablescape done that I had planned but I wanted to share table decorations that I came up with a couple of years ago for an Easter table. Everything I used in this tablescape was from the Dollar Store, Big Lots, and Dollar General except for the fresh flowers which you can easily pick up at the grocery store. This decoration was quick, simple, fun and full of bright colors. Remember, you can take any of the ideas from the table and use any one or more of them for your dining table at home, buffet table or even a kid’s table.

Spring Flowers ~ Bells Of Ireland

April 12, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Dramatic, green, and tall are a few of the words we might use to describe Bells Of Ireland, a wonderful flower that will add those three things and so much more to any flower arrangement. Bells are one of my favorites, they work well with lots of other flowers, including Hydrangeas, Lilies, and Tulips. Join me for a look at arrangements using Bells of Ireland, click here to see a more in-depth post I did on Bells last Summer. Enjoy!!!

Pier 1 Bunnies

April 12, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Easter is this Sunday and if you are needing some last minute ideas for decorations around the house or on your dining table then I’ve got some ideas for you. One great place to start is Pier 1, almost all major cities have a Pier 1 and of course, you can order online, although it may be a little late now. Pier 1 always has great choices in Holiday decorations for all seasons and today we are going to take a look at a few of the many and wonderful choices they have in Rabbits and Bunnies. Pier 1 has rabbits that are cute and homey and rabbits that look very high end as well as some that are very “artsy” looking. Any of these rabbits and bunnies can be combined with decorations you already own or you can pick up some of the other great decorating items Pier 1 has in stock. Join me for a trip down the bunny trail as we pay Peter Rabbit a visit, Enjoy!!!

Canola In The Country

April 7, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I went to see mom and dad yesterday in my hometown of Hydro, mom texted me before I left and said to bring my camera because the Canola was bloomed out and beautiful. It was a beautiful Spring day for pictures, the Canola is in full bloom and the sky was a gorgeous blue with big fluffy clouds floating by. We drove down old Highway 66 a few miles east of Hydro to a huge field of Canola and I took today’s photos. I think it’s amazing that something we use so much of, Canola Oil, comes from these fields of beautiful yellow plants swaying in the Oklahoma breeze. I thought this was a great way to end our week here on the blog, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy these images from my little corner of the world. Enjoy!!!

Spring Flowers ~ Gladiolus

By Tab Byrum

If you want to add height and drama to your flower arrangements then you want Gladiolus. Glads come in all colors and with their wonderful height, they add a definite touch of WOW. I recently helped a client with a big birthday party in her home and I did a large vase full of Glads on the dessert table and it was gorgeous. For a more in-depth look at Gladiolus click here to see a post I did in August 2014. Enjoy!!!

Homemade Easter Wreath

April 5, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I’m trying to come up with more holiday oriented posts for the blog, especially ones that include homemade merchandise that isn’t too difficult or too expensive to make. Back during the Christmas holidays I shared a homemade wreath I made for our front door and at the time I made a note to myself that this could easily be done for other holidays. With that in mind, I loaded up on ornaments, especially shatterproof, at the after Christmas sales, all of today’s ornaments came from At Home. But, unfortunately, life and work got in the way and Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day passed by and I didn’t’ get the wreaths done that I wanted to so I promised myself that I would DEFINITELY do a wreath for Easter and I made it yesterday. This really is an easy recipe to make this wreath, you need a wreath form, a spring colored garland to wrap the form, ornaments to hot glue to the garland and anything else you want to add for the holiday you’re doing, I used Easter eggs and chicks. For a step by step how to, you can revisit my Christmas Wreath post here and I’ve included some pictures of the finished product. Let me know what you think, I’m seriously thinking about making these to sell, thoughts? Enjoy!!!

Spring Flower ~ Hydrangea

By Tab Byrum

Spring has sprung and we are headed towards Easter in less than two weeks, so I thought we would take a look back at posts I’ve done on different flowers that start being available now. Today we are going to start with Hydrangeas, one of my favorite flowers to use and one that I use many times as a base for arrangements. Click here to see an in-depth post I did back in 2015 on Hydrangeas.
