It’s been a while since I’ve offered flower recipes, but I’m over-inspired by spring & will be sharing a few in the next couple weeks! Spring always brings plenty of opportunities to entertain – showers, brunch, Easter & Mother’s Day are just a few of my favorite occasions. Tulips are plentiful at grocery stores across the nation this time of year. I love them because of their effortless beauty that reminds me of my mom’s garden. They’re also very inexpensive!

  4. Love this Julie! What a pretty spring centerpiece. I might have to do this with one of the babies Easter baskets.

  5. This is so cute Julie – I like using chicken wire in my vases, but adding tape to a basket is a new idea for me. Can’t wait to try! xChloe
