Beauty is as Beauty Does

For attractive lips,

Speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes,

Seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure,

Share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair,

Let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise,

Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things,

Have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,

And redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,

You will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;

One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Mothers Day is May 9th

Mothers Day is the Celebration of Mothers , Motherhood and Maternal Bonds in general. A Great Gift for Mothers Day is by simply giving your mom the day off to rest and relax. No cleaning or cooking, maybe start with a little breakfast in bed ( but make sure you clean up afterwards, no pots and pans in the sink!!) If you can not cook you could always go a pick up some freshly baked muffins or scones, a few coffees and her favorite juice arrange it all on a tray and surprise Mom when she wakes with breakfast in bed.

Now how about the card, don't forget the card- it really means a lot!! Get a good one- it doesn't have to be mushy but something you want to say. If you can not find the perfect  one- you could make one.
On Mothers Day many people buy flowers for their mom and after a few weeks ( maybe even one week ) they are dead and thrown away. Why not get your MOM everlasting flowers that look real and they never die,  never look wilted, never need watering, SO EASY and PRETTY. Check out some of Blooming Couture's Floral Designs

Berry Wreath's

Fresh Spring Decor... great for Easter, Mothers day, Summer, Birthday Gift, House Warming...
 Berry wreaths have become a VERY hot item in home decor. They compliment pretty much any decor
They are a wonderful welcome on your front door, inside your home as a wall hanging or display on a dining table as a centerpiece to encircle a glass hurricane or votive candle. Handcrafted with faux berries on a natural vine base. The vines that the berries are attached to are bendable so that the berries can be shaped for different looks and sizes. I have made a number of different colored wreaths and I have also mixed and matched colors for custom looks. These are perfect for any season and are a great alternative to the traditional silk flower wreaths.

My Newest Creation... Click on Wreath for GREAT close up pic

My new creation is a OOAK Spring Wreath with an abundance of beautiful spring blooms. This piece reminds me of the flowers you see on a spring day at the farmers market. The flower cart is always packed with the most vibrant colors and wonderful waves of perfumed air. I have such Spring Fever. It is starting to warm up here in Connecticut. I can't wait to get to the different farmers markets in the small surrounding towns where I live. There is this one couple that grow their own strawberries and they taste like nothing I have ever tasted before, the most delicious, red, sweet, juicy berries. Not supermarket, over developed berries. I think really good produce is hard to find at just your typical supermarket. If I see a farm stand , I'm stopping :) Dont Forget:  March 14th Spring Ahead and change your clocks for 1 hour ahead.

Spring is Here at Blooming Couture

Yes, I know it is Febuary and here on the East Coast we just got a whole load of snow but it is sunny and the snow is melting. While the snow was falling I was busy designing my new Spring/Summer collection of Wreaths.

Why Silk Flowers?

Silk Flowers Versus Fresh:
Advantages, Reasons for Choosing

Silk flowers last...and last...and last. And they can be cleaned easily and quickly to look fresh as ever.

Weather conditions will not affect them. They don't need care or feeding, won't wilt, dry out, or die.

Mementos of special celebrations will endure for many years.

Many people need to accommodate special considerations, or simply enjoy the flexibility that artificial flowers offer, such as...

No worries about allergic reactions to scents and pollen. On the other hand, scent can be added if desired.

Faux flowers will not attract bees and other insects!

Availability and pricing are not ruled by the seasons, remembrance days or holidays. You can pretty much get what you want, in a wide variety of colors, whenever you wish, at reasonable and customary prices.

Most artificial flower stems and elements can be bent, twisted and shaped - kind of like floral sculpting - to create unusual and striking designs.

Silk and artificial elements can be RE-USED again if in good condition. Don't throw them away - recombine them and build a brand new flower arrangement!
