Ode To A Rose

I cannot help myself.  I love beautiful flowers.  My husband and I recently (in September) moved to our new home.  One of the things (one of my favorite things) we left behind, were my Paul Bucose roses.
I love roses.  I love hydrangeas.  I love daffodils.  I love lavender, But, I especially love roses.  I grew up enjoying the roses of my grandmother's back yard: my Grandmother Evelyn, who was an avid gardener.  She grew roses, and especially the "Peace Rose,"  whose petals were lovely.  A beautiful pink and  soft yellow combination.
This is a photo of the beautiful roses I miss so very much.  My very own "Paul Bucose" rose.
There is nothing in this world so very nice and sweet to me as fresh cut roses.
I have roses ( a lot of roses) in the back of my "new" home.
I'm not certain of their origin.  But,
May they come again this spring!

Beautiful Paper Laterns for your Wedding Reception

Beautiful Beehive Paper Lantern made out of rice paper

Sweet Eyelet Paper Lantern made of lacey handmade
paper with a floral eyelet pattern, will cast a beautiful shadow.

Cocoon Paper Lantern comes in a lot of colors
and is most affordable.

 So often my clients would like to add additional soft romantic
lighting to their event. And paper lanterns with soft LED lights inside are a perfect way to create
the right mood for relaxing and socializing, eating and drinking, and dancing!
 I really believe in turning out the over-head lights (or at least turning them way down), and going with straight candle-glow and twinkle lights.  LED lights are the most environmentally thoughtful way to go, because they use so much less energy than regular lights.  They are made using break-resistant plastic, and generate very little heat-so they don't pose a fire hazard.
