Mother's Day Give Away Winner

Thank you to those who participated in the bouquet give away. I hope to be able to do another one in the not too distant future.

I apologize for the delay in publicly posting my thanks as well as announcing who the winner was- I have had a very busy week and weekend of houseguests and babysitting 4 children for the week while my sister was out of town celebrating her anniversary.

The winner was Alicia.

I thought I'd share some pictures of the flowers I did, not only for the give away, but also for my mom who happens to be in town this month, and a lovely lady who actually had her baby on Mother's Day!

I love Parrot Tulips because of their variegated colors and frilly edges.

I knew I wanted pink, yellow, and silver. The tulips were a great starting point.

I made 5 of these bouquets- one was for the give away, and the others were purchased by friends from the Art&Soup Committee over at CNS.

Then, using the exact same number of flowers and foliage in the other arrangements, and adding some flowering evergreen sprigs, some extra leaves, and these......

exquisite carniverous plants, I made this....

C'mon now- I had to make something extra fancy-schmancy for my Mom!

And then, because I had a few flowers left over, I put together a smaller arrangement for my sister's friend that became a Mom on Mother's Day. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!

And I have to give a special thanks to my friend, Brooke, for helping me out with this. You're about the best Sista from another Mista a girl could ever have!!
