I’ve had a major think for anything floral lately.  This jacket is older but I linked some really cute blazers above that I’m loving.  The blazer from Banana Republic is seriously the perfect for spring and is currently in my online shopping cart.

Hope you’re having a great week, thanks for stopping by!


Flowers for the Hostess

Today I’m sharing the perfect gift to take along with you when you’ve been invited for dinner. I don’t drink alcohol so taking wine is not my thing, flowers on the other hand are everyone’s thing!  I picked up these flowers from the grocery store but can’t give them with the bright plastic wrapper on it so here’s what I did….

Start with your flowers, butcher paper, bakers twine, and scissors

DIY make store-bought flowers look like they came from the florist

Cut a square of butcher paper, place your flowers in, and wrap them up…

Wrap your bakers twine (or ribbon) around a few times and tie in a bow.  And there you have it!  A cute little bunch of flowers that look twice as nice as store-bought!
