Spring time is almost here.  For me, that means there are some wonderful blooms to choose from.

  • Alliums
  • Hyacinth
  • Tulips
  • Daffodils
  • Daisies
  • Peonies
  • Lillacs

Some of these blooms are highly fragrant. So if you are making an arrangement keep that in mind.  Other than that enjoy the spring.

 Adam Levine’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, gown made the color of the year, Marsala, come to life. This dress was absolutely stunning. The colors were also inspiration for this table.
