Last spring my friend Linda and I cut and assembled a whole bunch of these table centerpieces for a retirement party. We used the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. Linda really did all the arranging. Well we are having a teacher of the year breakfast at work to honor our special teacher the end of this month. They asked me to make some kind of corsage using creams and maroon. I took a little liberty with the colors. I used the Flower Shoppe cart my kids got me for Christmas. I sprayed the flowers with opal glimmer mist. Here is what I know. I am not an arranger and it was bringing back memories of Linda that made me sad now that she is gone so I called on a fellow co-worker. Her daughter is a florist so I am turning all the flowers over to her to whip up into something beautiful. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I will post pictures of the finished project. This was my Sunday night project after having slept all day trying to make my sick self feel better.


  1. The whole idea and the arrangement are so beautiful and a wonderful reminder of Linda. I want to learn how to make these flowers. If you end up doing any workshops as church outreach, let me know.

  2. As always-GREAT work! The flowers are really wonderful, even laying flat. I would be glad to attend "your class" if you decide to have one.
