White Tulip & Hydrangea Arrangement


White Tulip & Hydrangea Arrangement
So...my best friend is a floral designer.  She will probably be MORTIFIED when she sees this but I like it...and it was HAND MADE by me for MY mama!  Her FAVORITE flowers are White tulips and Hydrangea so....I wanted to make an arrangement for Mother's Days.  My best friend is the one who got me this BEAUTIFUL vase from work and she even had it equipped with AQUAFOAM!  Can't even tell you how awesome she is....THANK YOU BEKKAH!

I've NEVER made an arrangement because well....MY BEST FRIEND has always done that FOR ME! :)  But we live in different states now...so I had to fend for myself.  (Not without the amazing advice she gives though.....)

I started by buying a bunch of white tulips at the grocery store and a GREEN hydrangea plant from the local farm store that had been forested (or grown in a green house) so it was already in bloom.



Next...well I added water to the foam and vase and started adding greens around the base.

Yes...my kids punched finger holes in the foam :)










Trying to make sure it all stays somewhat even....















Next...I added my MAIN flowers I wanted in the arrangement for my mom and then started filling in all the holes....

Bekkah said NOT to add the hydrangea until the last minute because they don't do well in the foam so I waited until the DAY OF...to make the arrangement.!







Once the holes were filled, I was pretty much done!




My mama's wrapped present...sometimes SIMPLE....is CLASSIC and ELEGANT!


HERE...Is MY MAMA!  I give her credit for all I know and all I do.  Thank you for being my MOM!  Happy Mother's Day Mama!



THANK YOU to all my readers for all you do!  I hope all of the mother's had a GREAT MOTHER'S DAY and felt as spoiled as I did!  I was given a healthy but decadent breakfast in bed made by my husband and kids!  PLUS.....An amazing dinner with steak, scallop and shrimp cabobs for dinner made by my AMAZING step dad!  Thank you for all you do!

AND NO DISHES! :)



What an AMAZING day!  Thanks for stopping by and I would LOVE if you would leave a COMMENT and become a FOLLOWER in the side bar of my page!

  7. Heather, your arrangement is beautiful! Hydrangeas and tulips are two of my favorite flavors, and I love how you stayed with the white tones. Your mom must have been thrilled beyond belief!

    I love your tagline/philosophy and am so glad that you joined the "A Little Birdie Told Me..." party at Rook No. 17. Welcome!
